Treating your body

About Christina Fattori

  • Christina Fattori BSc (Hons) has been practising as a Western Medical Herbalist for more than seven years since she graduated in 2007 from the University of Westminster. From the time of her course she developed an interest in the exact source and quality of the herbs going into remedies, so she decided to study the Royal Horticultural Society Level 1&2 year long course at Capel Manor College in London in 2011 to gain more knowledge on how to grow and look after plants optimally.  She now combines her herbal practice with teaching her patients how to plant and grow their own medicine in their own space, whether they have a windowsill or a garden.  One of her herbal gardens featured prominently at the Chelsea Fringe Festival 2014, where she also held two workshops.

    She frequently updates her knowledge on the latest scientific advances by attending seminars both at home and abroad.  She is a member of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy (CPP) and regularly teaches workshop participants how to make their own remedies.  She also enjoys explaining and demonstrating to interested people the wonders of medicinal plants by taking them on herbal walks in and around London.

    Christina is a practitioner, who aims to treat your body, but also considers your mind, and respects your soul. She can be contacted at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Herbal Medicine

  • Herbal medicine has supported humanity for thousands of years and still does.  In fact many orthodox drugs such as aspirin and digoxin are fabricated from the healing ingredients found in specific plants such as the the willow tree and foxglove respectively. As a herbalist I have a holistic view which means that I consider every part of your persona during our investigation rather than just focussing on your illness or symptoms. We are complex organisms and so are plants. Therefore the herbalist will use all of the ingredients found in a particular flower, leaf or root rather than isolating one ingredient for increased potency.

    The herbalist believes that all of the ingredients taken together complement each other and gently nudge the body back to health.

    Modern science has confirmed numerous truths about the healing effects of many different herbs through scientific analyses and randomised controlled trials. However, many more herbs still remain unexplored by science and may therefore be discredited.  I consider both modern scientific knowledge as well as the 2000 year old proof records which herbalists keep.
