🌿 welcome to our Meet our Members post where you can find out about our members work, interests and passions ✨ & get in touch with them directly if you'd like to book a consultation or find out more about the work they do 🌿

Let us introduce you to our member Geri McGann ✨

Q1. Tell us a little bit about yourself?

✨ Hello, I'm Geri McGann, a medical Herbalist currently practicing in the Beara/West Cork area. I qualified in 2021 & last year set up The Beara Holistic Clinic.

Q2. How long have you been a practicing Herbalist?

🌿 I've been a part-time Herbalist for the last 2 years, treating mainly friends & family. However, this year I am pursuing it on a more permanent basis. I set up The Beara Holistic Clinic last year with a Nutritional Therapist (although we run our businesses separately). My business is in its infancy really as I try to promote my services & educate people about the benefits of herbal medicine.

Q3. Are there any areas you are particularly interested in or specialise in?

✨ Right now I don't specialise, & see all ages and genders. In the future, I'm interested in specialising more in paediatric & supporting women who have just given birth.

Q4. What do you love about the work you do?

🌿 I love the herbs & how they can support people in their healing journey, whatever that looks like. I love seeing peoples healing journey through the herbs & the benefits they bring to peoples lives.

Q5. What are you inspired by this time of year?

🌿 Nature, always! I love Spring flowers & seeing the longer, brighter days return. I love getting out & getting my nails dirty with the soil.

Thanks Geri ✨ part 2 to follow ✨

🌿 part 2 of this weeks Meet our Member, with Jonathan Roche, Project Co-ordination Officer with the IRH 🌿

Q5. What are you inspired by this time of year?

✨ At this time of year I love the burst of new growth, of picking wild garlic and making pesto with it. I love the longer days & louder birdsong. Being able to go for a walk in the early evening, the first sign of primroses.

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

🌿 Yes, I recently listened to Entangled Life on audiobook by Merlin Sheldrake, which is amazing! It's about the interconnectedness of life mostly through mushrooms, yeasts & lichens. I found the symbiotic account of Lichens really fascinating and the intelligence and interconnectedness of the simplest life forms with the most complicated was comforting and reassuring. It is a really easy book to read.

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

✨ I think it would be Hawthorn. I'm in love with trees anyway so I don't have a favourite, but I do encourage people to pick and drink Hawthorn flower tea, which has a delicate rose and vanilla flavour & relaxing effect on the mind, which promotes a better nights sleep. Be careful when picking the flowers though, the thorns are formidable! It's best to cut them from a tree on a sunny afternoon with scissors and a paper bag placed underneath to collect them. Bring them home & dry them out on a sheet of newspaper. Keep a window open to let out any insects that you've collected by mistake. The dried tea improves with age if kept in an airtight container.

🌿 Thanks so much Jonathan for sharing 🌿

🌿 welcome to our Meet our Members post, where you can find out about our members work, interests and passions ✨ & get in touch with them directly if you'd like to book a consultation or find out more about the work they do 🌿

✨ Each member is asked the same questions, so let us introduce Jonathan Roche, Project Co-ordination Officer with the IRH ✨

Q1. Tell us a little bit about yourself?

🌿 I work as a shiatsu therapist and naturopath, I live & work in Wicklow. I like to spend alot of time outdoors, particularly in the forests of Wicklow, immersing myself in nature, noticing the changes as the year progresses and becoming more aware of the natural environment.

Q2. How long have you been a practicing Herbalist, & describe your practice?

🌿 I've been a practicing Herbalist since 2012, it took 7 years to train as a Herbalist. I might not have started had I known it would take that long. I practice on the seafront in Bray, just south of Dublin. It's an international practice because so many different nationalities live in Ireland now & also I do use some herbs from around the world, although as much as possible I buy herbal preparations that are grown or made in Ireland.

Q3. Are there any areas you specialise in, or are particularly interested in?

🌿 I tend to specialise in metabolism and mood disorders. So this could range from low energy, disrupted menstrual cycles, feeling tired after eating or a combination of some or all of these. In terms of mood or emotional front I treat poor sleep, low moods, depression, anxiety, brain-fog, cognitive decline & nightmares.

Q4. What do you love about the work you do?

🌿 I like interacting with patients and helping people. I love the holistic nature of long consultations, looking at the details of a persons life for openings or ways to bring about change. I love the pharmacy of mixing the herbs and making medicine for people.
