I’ve started a new blog for Mark, promoting the herbal business. It’s a new start for him; having moved to this area he is dissolving the partnership that was Mark’s Herbalists and setting up as Amanda or Mandy. Strangely enough, I don’t mind this so much: it seems sort of appropriate to have that name as a herbalist so maybe it will chime with the public too. I think he should do better in this area as well as the population are likely to be more in tune with alternative therapies. I went down Queen’s Rd today and asked in the local shops and many of them take posters for free, including Green and Pleasant, the health food shop:
I guess it would compensate me in some measure for all the freakiness if he could really make a go of it here. It was always a struggle before: people didn’t seem to know what herbalism was or how it was different from homeopathy. Or even whether it was different from homeopathy. Incidentally, have you heard the one about the homeopathy patient who died from an accidental underdose?
Ha ha ha.
So: herbalism is not homeopathy. I shall be blogging about that as Mark/Mandy’s proxy: I think it’s probably best if I do the communicating as Mark’s stuff is far too technical. So I shall give information about what herbalism is, what it isn’t, and what it can and can’t do.
Anyway, please take a look at the new blog and tell me what you think:
