About Me

Charles Powell BSc (Hons) Herbal Medicine - MNIMH MBIAET, is a highly trained medical professional with many years experience as a Medical Herbalist.

A "Medical Herbalist" is a properly qualified practitioner who has studied medicine at university, as opposed to a herbalist who's had no formal medical training and often has purely learnt their trade by home study. With a fully qualified and experienced practitioner like Charles, you know you are in safe hands.

He studied Herbal Medicine at Middlesex University in London, the first university in the western world to run a full time four year B.S.c (Hons) Degree in Herbal Medicine. As part of his degree Charles is also trained in Diet and Nutrition, as well as being qualified in Allergy Testing after studying at the Institute of Allergy and Environmental Medicine.

Charles qualified in 1999 and has 14 years clinical experience. in his time as a practitioner he has seen many diseases and conditions, some everday, some very rare and he's treated many patients very successfully over the years.

Charles is also a member of The National Institute of Medical Herbalists, founded in 1864 they are the oldest and largest professional Governing Body for practising medical herbalists throughout the world, and only 5 years younger than The General Medical Council, the professional organisation for doctors that started in 1859.

There are several herbal training courses and professional bodies, but the NIMH has far superior training. Admission to the institute follows graduation of a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree from an accredited university, all members have to undertake a minimum of four years rigorous training where students are trained by medical doctors.

The teaching modules undertaken by Charles for his Honours Degree included Anatomy and Physiology, Diagnostic Skills, Clinical Medicine, Pharmacology, Pharmacy, Pharmacognosy as well as by very experienced Medical herbalists in Botany, Materia Medica, Herbal Therapeutics, Philosophy of Herbal Medicine and Clinical Practice etc. In addition all students trained at the Whittington Hospital in North London for a total of 500 hours of clinical practice where they treated patients in a clinical setting at the Herbal Clinic, along with attending many seminars.

Members are required to carry out Continuing Professional development, and commit to a career-long learning programme organised by the NIMH Post Graduate Training Board.
All members are also governed by a strict code of ethics and practice as well as a complaints and disciplinary procedure.
They are also covered by professional indemnity and malpractice insurance.
