Ginny Kemp is an experienced Medical Herbalist registered with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) and the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy (CPP) Reg: 232. After achieving an Honours degree in Medical Science from the University of Birmingham Medical School, Ginny went on to complete a degree in the Clinical Practice of Western Herbal Medicine from the University of East London.
With a background in Medical Science and wide experience of Herbal Medicine, Ginny uses her knowledge of both orthodox Medicine and Herbal Medicine to offer an integrated approach for her patients to help optimise benefit from treatment.
After training, Ginny joined Hydes Herbal Clinic in Leicester with which she was associated for 10 years. She joined The Broad St Practice in October 2014.
During her Herbal degree, Ginny was awarded the Pharmacology prize for her excellent understanding of the action and effects of both conventional and herbal medicines as well as the Arthur Barker prize for her final examination results. 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; 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. Ginny has also written and delivered workshops and courses in Herbal Medicine at the University of Leicester Botanical Gardens and in 2017 she became a member of council for the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy.
Ginny became interested in Herbal Medicine after both her 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.
Ginny is married to James and has two daughters, Isabelle and Alexa.
