About Ginny Kemp
I have a degree in Medical Science from the University of Birmingham Medical School as well as a degree in the Clinical Practice of Western Herbal Medicine from the University of East London.
During my Herbal degree, I was awarded the Pharmacology prize for my excellent understanding of the action and effects of both conventional and herbal medicines as well as the prestigious Arthur Barker prize for my final examination results.
After training in London, I joined Hydes Herbal Clinic in Leicester with which I was associated for 10 years before joining The Broad Street Practice in Stamford. I have since expanded my practice to clinics in Tilton and Tur Langton, near Market Harborough.
My previous research interests include looking at the interaction of Vitamin D and cells of the immune system, as well as examining the properties of Milk Thistle preparations. Milk Thistle is a herb that has a long traditional use for its protective effect on the liver, which has been validated by a number of modern studies.
What I do
With a background in Medical Science and wide experience of Herbal Medicine, I use my knowledge of both orthodox Medicine and Herbal Medicine to offer my patients an integrated approach to optimise treatment benefits.
I have also written and delivered workshops and courses in Herbal Medicine at the University of Leicester Botanical Gardens, The William Scott Abbot Trust at Sacrewell Farm, and I regularly give talks to local social groups & WI’s.
Being a member of council for the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy and the European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners association takes me down to London at least 8 times a year to discuss the future, training, research and quality in Herbal Medicine.
I became interested in Herbal Medicine after both my Grandmothers turned to it, having exhausted the conventional route without relief. In both cases, after a number of week’s treatment with herbal medicine, their chronic problems were cured and their quality of life hugely improved as a result.
