Victor Paes BSc (Hons) MNIMH
My name is Victor Paes, a registered medical herbalist based in London's East End. I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2019, having concluded a 3 year degree in Herbal Medicine, incorporating 500 hours of clinical practice. I am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), the UK's professional membership organisation that sets the highest standards of practice in herbal medicine. I also hold a level 4 diploma in First Response Emergency Care (FREC 4), which is a nationally recognised prehospital care qualification, clinically endorsed by The Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care – The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. This fulfils the competencies set out in the Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) skills framework.
As a healthcare provider I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in order to maintain and develop skills and competencies to carry out professional and clinical duties competently.
I am also a member of Herbalists Without Borders UK and I have been visiting the refugee camps in Northern France to provide first aid and acute herbal medicine to hundreds of displaced people.
I am passionate about medicine but given the limitations and side effects of orthodox medicine when treating chronic conditions I decided to pursue the natural health & nutrition path.
