Conference: Medics or Magicians: Herbal Medicine for the 21st Century - 9th - 10th July 2011

Riseholme Campus,
The University of Lincoln
9 -10 July 2011

Medicine is not merely a science but an art. The character of the physician may act more powerfully upon the patient than the drugs employed.’ Paracelsus

This two day conference will explore the complexities of herbal medicine therapeutics. To what extent is the remedy, the patient or the practitioner active in the therapeutic process and what is the nature these interactions? This question is highly pertinent to our effectiveness as practitioners and our understanding of the philosophies and doctrines which underpin our practice.

Herbal medicine has always been revisionist and iconoclastic in its service to the needs of the people. In contemporary society people are ill in complex ways and holistic treatment of the modern condition requires a sophisticated and complex understanding of the dynamics and interactions within the body and that the mind and body cannot be separated. Psycho-physiological processes are recognised as the key to both the cause and resolution of disease and this conference will investigate some of these through a series of lectures and workshops.
