Ian Breakspear, Medical Herbalist.
In any profession, there are people who stand out, just from sheer competence. The kind of practitioner that you want to see, no matter whether their specialisation is directly applicable to you or not, simply because you know they'll be able to help. Ian's one of those people; or he's always seemed so to me. He was my first herbs lecturers, many many years ago. These days he is lecturing at the University of Western Sydney, as well as being on the board of the National Herbalists Association, and running his own private herbal practice - Wholmed. (I did the clinic photography for his site many years ago, so don't hold the quality of the pics against me.)
He was also the person who taught me an appreciation for good chocolate, by the way, as well as being one of the standards I aspired to reach when I was still in private naturopathic practice. Go Ian!
