Floramedica, based in Edinburgh, is a hub for information and education on using plants, foods, local green spaces, and other simple and sustainable resources to promote health and wellbeing.
Using plants as a therapeutic resource goes far beyond what is generally understood as herbal medicine. It encompasses the whole of the natural environment at the broadest end of the spectrum, and simple fresh foods at the other.
This approach offers a versatile range of tools for managing health challenges, combating illness and stress and restoring and maintaining wellbeing.
These tools are accessible to everyone.
