Marcos Patchett is a medical herbalist living in London. He’s much too young to retire but old enough that he should know better. He moved to London to make art and party in the late 90's, doing a fair amount of both, but then got all tangled up in plants instead (ironic, having relocated from the countryside), and ended up doing quite well on a herbal medicine BSc. He began working with people living with HIV, practicing from a clinic in King’s Cross and Neal’s Yard Remedies in Covent Garden, and became a clinical supervisor on Middlesex University’s BSc and MSc herbal medicine courses from 2013-18.
He’s enthusiastic about plants, pharmacology, herbal medicine, traditional astrology, Wu style Tai Chi Chuan, chocolate, Mesoamerica, and the history of magic.
