“My name is Karen Carpenter and I’m a Medical Herbalist located in Bromley. I give herbal medicine consultations to people affected by illness or those just wanting to get into better shape. I work with anyone who wishes to improve their health from children to the elderly and from skin conditions to fertility.
I believe the body is able to heal itself with a little help from nature – a core naturopathic principle. Herbs and the correct nutrition can restore our natural state of good health. Identifying the cause of disease where possible – be it physical, environmental or emotional – and correcting the resulting imbalance in the body will leave you full of health, energy and vitality.”
Having previously worked in physiotherapy in an NHS hospital, Karen subsequently completed a BSc (Honours) degree in Herbal Medicine at the University of East London. Clinical training took place at Stratford Herbal Clinic and Whipps Cross NHS Dermatology Clinic.
