ROSARI KINGSTON

IRELAND

How can the Irish healing tradition inform our therapeutic practice?

As a medical herbalist, Rosari‚Äôs initial training involved the study of the biological sciences, clinical diagnostic techniques, and the tradition and science of plants that can be  used therapeutically. Subsequent to this training she completed her MSc and PhD.
The Irish indigenous healing tradition is a passion of hers and she lectures on this subject in the Department of Folklore & Ethnology, University College Cork. Rosari considers that the malaise afflicting a lot of modern medicine is due to our inability to grasp the rich healing methods inherent in indigenous cultures. Ethno- psychiatry is one branch of medicine that is beginning to perceive the richness in indigenous practices and are developing ways of integrating it with biomedicine. All branches of 'alternative' medicine need to dig deep into this common resource also and it is a key component of all the case studies studied in the Irish College of Traditional and Integrative Medicine of which Rosari is cofounder.
Rosari is also author of: Ireland's Hidden Medicine: An exploration of Irish indigenous medicine from legend and myth to the present day published in 2021 by Aeon.
