Julian Barker



After an inordinate number of previous occupations, Julian Barker started his training in herbal medicine in North and Central America, then returned to Britain as an apprentice herb-grower at Suffolk Herbs while studying concurrently on NIMH’s tutorial course, before joining the first cohort at the School of Herbal Medicine. In 1983, he opened a clinic in Brighton offering acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and osteopathy but recently has upsized to a single practice.

Teaching botany at the School of Herbal Medicine for over twenty years, Julian supervised BSc dissertations and taught philosophy on the MSc course in herbal medicine at the University of East London. Since 1998 he has worked in Paris and has studied in London with Dr. Jean-Claude Lapraz on the application of medicinal plants along Endobiogenic lines.

The author of The Medicinal Flora of Britain and Northwestern Europe and History, Philosophy and Medicine, Julian Barker outlined an integration of circadian physiology and functional medicine with herbal therapeutics, which was published in 2011 by The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids, and is currently applying his theory of Stochastic Resonance to signal transduction aided by medicinal plants. He is a fellow of the Linnaean Society, serves on the Accreditation Board of the European Herbal Practitioners’ Association, and is a member of the College of Practicing Phytotherapists and the National Institute of Medical Herbalists.
