Workbooks: OurMedicine Toolkits

Personalised and interactive workbooks, and their companion journals, for supported self care of sleep, eating, stress/anxiety, fatigue/low energy, and back pain. These are core tools for the new Health Guide. We have a dedicated public website where we offer links to these workbooks and other self care support.

The Self Care Library

Our FREE independent review of scientific evidence for a wide range of self care approaches in 12 common conditions where prescriptions can often be a last resort: things you can do at home, things you can buy and people you can see. Each is given a simple rating for benefits, risks and costs.  Created by a team at the University of Westminster with the support of the UK Department of Health.

Plant tools for resilience

Follow the Herbal Hub link to a vast range of resources on the use of plants in traditional and modern medicine. Ranging from foods to powerful drugs plants can provide a very accessible toolkit for resilience hunters and a homely medicine chest for anyone else.

Social prescription

Become a Hub! The most powerful generator of resilience is the community. Health Guides can be at their strongest in facilitating self care groups, classes, question-time events or simply providing a space for community activities near or at their practice. If you are a prescriber look at a ‘social prescription‘ as a option. We have some experience and resources to share.
