🌿 it's Nettle soup time again 🌿 always so delighted to enjoy the first bowl of the Spring. Great time of year with all the green appearing. Nettle is iron rich & full of minerals, a great one to gather & add to your daily food and drinks - can be enjoyed in many different ways such a cup (or pot!) of tea, delicious nettle soup, spring greens pesto, add to omelette or scrambled egg with green sauce, nettle & cheese scones ..... what ways do you enjoy Nettles vitality in your food or drinks?

Funny was just talking about this with a client t last night

🌿 part 2 of ✨ Meet our Member ✨Miriam McDonald 🌿

Q6. Is there a book you've read or a podcast you've listened to recently that you'd recommend?

✨ I would really recommend Wonder Drug by Jennifer Vanderbes. I know it's not a herbal book, it's about thalidomide in the US, but it is very interesting. & if you're a Nerd like me, The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson, which provides a discussion about the ethical issues facing CRISPR technology.

Q7. If there was only 1 herb you could recommend for people to get to know, which one would it be?

✨ I've been trying Pau d'Arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) recently just to understand it better as we use it for digestive issues, including candida. Interestingly, although it is not listed anywhere, I slept like a log when taking it! Maybe because it's hypoglycemic, but it's a really nice herb.

Q8. How can people get in touch with you to book a consultation or find out more about the work you do?

✨ I can be contacted on 087 8138500, my email is info@freshperceptions.com or find me on Instagram @freshperceptionshealth

🌿 Thanks so much Miriam for sharing 🌿
