Marion Mackonochie

Marion Mackonochie trained at Middlesex University after a career in science publishing and a first degree studying pharmacology and physiology. She has always been interested in health and figuring out what works, and discovered herbs after getting disillusioned with an approach to health that only considers pharmaceutical drugs as a solution. She is particularly interested in hormonal problems and anxiety. Please see her website for further info: Field Remedies.

She is a herbalist who is passionate about supporting people to take their health back into their own hands using holistic approaches which address the root causes not just the symptoms.
