Healer Anna Parkinson was a busy BBC journalist when she was told she had a brain tumour and that it was inoperable. Anna searched and tried every solution until, at last, she discovered healing.

Eight years after the initial diagnosis, without medical intervention, Anna's scan results showed the tumour had shrunk to a tiny remnant of the cancer that had once almost destroyed her life.

It turns out Anna's ancestor, John Parkinson, was a healer and author himself. He was the herbalist to Charles I, and published his life's discoveries as a herbalist in Theatrum Botanicum in the 17th century..

Anna is now a healer and writer herself. Her books include Change your Mind, Heal your Body. Learn more about her work at (link opens in a new window).
