I am a both a holistic therapist who is aiming to be specialising in herbalism, homeopathy, flower essences and reflexology. As well as a Scientist – I have recently obtained my MSc from the Open University.
My main research interest is in neurochemistry and neuropharmacology and I hope to once I have qualified, to concentrate my research on plant therapy on neurological conditions. I am also interested into drug addiction as well and concentrate on the role of the eCB (endocannabinoid) system, which was kick started whilst doing a research on a CB1 project whilst doing my PGCert.
My other major interests in a scientific aspect is indole alkaloids – so being a herbalist and a biological chemist can come in handy.
Always looking for more qualifications and am trying to get onto a PhD course!
