Floramedica is a creative and innovative health-promoting practice run by Anna Canning, a qualified medical herbalist, translator, researcher and educator. Based in Edinburgh, Floramedica 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.
I am available to lead walks and give talks and practical demonstrations on a wide range of topics relating to the use of plants as medicine and food, sustainable health care and self-care, plant science (curriculum-linked for schools) and history/ ethnomedicine.
