Londoner Jonathan Treasure has been described as a thought leader in western herbal medicine. After graduating medical sciences from Cambridge University in the late 60s, and then dropping out of neuroscience research in Harvard Medical School to become a student of Tibetan Buddhism, he later studied herbal medicine at the UK School of Phytotherapy, and moved to the left coast of the US 25 years ago.

He is an author, international speaker and blogger with a reputation for critical wit especially in theory and philosophy of herbalism: His dual expertise in biomedical science and traditional western herbal therapeutics brings realtime interdisciplinary insights to both theory and practice – exemplified by the Mosby textbook “Herb, Nutrient and Drug Interactions” and in his clinical practice that specializes in botanical medicine for people with cancer.
