Medicinal mushrooms

How to use medicinal mushrooms at home

Mushrooms have been used as medicines across the world in many cultures for thousands of years. Learn how to use them at home for health and well being.

Whether you're an avid forager or a keen cook, there are recipes, videos and remedies in this course for everyone.

Please note: this is not a guide on how to safely identify and forage mushrooms. That information must be obtained elsewhere and I do offer some suggestions on that.

Laura undertook the degree part time over five years, which focused on anatomy and physiology, plant biochemistry and pharmacology, as well as orthodox medical diagnosis. She completed clinical training at the Stratford Herbal Medicine clinic and the Dermatology department of Whipps Cross Hospital in London, completing over 600 hours of clinical training. In 2013 NIMH awarded her the Dorothy Carroll Award for top final clinical examination.

Laura’s interest in herbs is from both scientific research and traditional British herbal medicine perspectives. She has a keen interest in using British plants, and the medicines she prescribes are often wild crafted, and organic where possible.

Reminding people of traditional remedies that can be harvested from the hedgerows and made into medicines in the kitchen is very important to Laura. It forms a big part of her workshops, herb walks and courses.
