A Fife medical herbalist is reaching out to people in need during lockdown by offering online mini-consultations for a minimum donation of £5 to local foodbanks.

Keren Brynes MacLean says the 15-minute Zoom sessions come as she cannot offer in person consultations under current restrictions.

Keren owns the practice at Health Food and More in Kirkcaldy

She said: “It’s unfortunate that the Scottish Government has decreed that medical herbalists cannot hold face to face consultations during lockdown except in exceptional circumstances.

“They seem not to realise that unlike bodywork therapists, we do not have to have physical contact with our patients.

“However, we do what we can, and this will go some way, hopefully, to making sure people get the help they need at a very difficult time.

“The more people we help at the clinic via Zoom, the more money we can pass on to the food bank.”
