Thriving as Herbalists - Building our strength as a profession - 19th November 2016

How can we better promote what we do to the public?
How can we support each other as herbalists?

These are some of the vital questions that will be addressed at this EHTPA conference which aims to generate a range of practical ideas and initiatives to advance the scope and profile of herbal practice. These proposals can subsequently be utilised by individual herbal practitioners, Professional Associations and/or the EHTPA.
Speakers Simon Mills and Anita Ralph will provide food for thought to engender active discussion throughout the break-out sessions that form the backbone of this conference. In addition, Lucy Jones will give a presentation on marketing your herbal practice.

URHP Annual Conference and AGM - 3rd to 5th June 2016

Speakers for this years' AGM are:

Dr Edward Thompson

Dr Edward Thompson is both a medical doctor and a herbalist. He is one of our very own, being a member of the URHP.  He is a seasoned speaker who thoroughly engages his audience with his eloquent and very articulate style of communication.  He makes it easy to understand many of the complexities of integrated health and medicine and it is a great pleasure to have him as our key speaker for this years’ main lecture.

The talk is entitled: 'An Integrated Approach to Mental Health'. Edward will include the following subjects:

  • Western medical diagnosis and approach to mental health including a particular focus on depression, anxiety and stress.
  • A pharmaceutical approach in terms of understanding as well as discussing drug and herb interactions.
  • An integrated herbal approach which will use an understanding of traditional, energetic and modern scientific paradigms of herbal medicine.
  • Diet, lifestyle, and psychological therapies.
  • Western Red flag symptoms and when to refer.
  • Interplay between herbal medicine and other CAM therapies in managing mental health conditions.
URHP members

URHP members will be speaking in turns to give us more insights into their own practices. It will be interesting to see and hear how some of our members use their own skills, knowledge and specialities to practice in their own particular way using herbal medicine and anything else that encompasses natural healing.

URHP annual conference

Seminar: Illustration and Identification in the History of Herbal Medicine: 18th June 2014

The aim of this day is to bring together researchers to explore issues related to plant illustration and identification in the history of herbal medicine. Correct identification of plants in the past has been of great importance, whether for foods, medicines or other purposes. But to what extent did people in medieval and early modern times learn about plants with medicinal uses from illustrations in herbals or elsewhere? Matters of interest include ways in which illustrations were produced, the role of illustrations, dissemination of information about plant identification, significant observers of plants and their approaches to plant description. This day seminar has been organised with a particular focus on presenting research into finding and interpreting archival and other sources relating to the history of herbal medicine. Advance registration is required.

Date: Wednesday 18th June 2014
Time: 10.30am - 4.30pm

Venue: Jodrell Lecture Theatre, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 3DS, UK

The Approved Suppliers Scheme was initiated by the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM) in 2004 with the aim of ensuring a safe supply of Chinese herbal products to its 450 members, and hence to the public. Under the sponsorship of the European Herbal and Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association, a herbal suppliers training day is being held to explore what an Approved Suppliers Scheme involves and what the standards are, challenges for suppliers and how to resolve these and regulation of the supply industry.
