Ep 161: 150 + Years of Martin & Pleasance Lab - with Kay Southcombe

Want to learn more about the long history of Martin and Pleasance and how the company has developed over the years?

In this episode, Kay will tell us more about Martin and Pleasance's long history, their age-old preparation methods that have stood the test of time in terms of value and efficacy, and their dedication to producing high-quality remedies that combine conventional wisdom with cutting-edge science.

Kay Southcombe has been a homeopathic practitioner since 2004 when she completed a bachelor's degree in homeopathy at the Australian College of Natural Medicine in Melbourne. She is passionate about improving the health and well-being of her patients and believes homeopathy is a gentle and effective way to achieve this. She particularly loves educating parents about the use of homeopathy to treat minor complaints for themselves and their children. Since 2017, she has practiced at MAMA, an independent midwifery clinic in Kensington with a fantastic team of women committed to providing women with the best choices around childbirth. She has also worked at Martin & Pleasance in the homeopathic lab for the past 17 years, including 4 years as lab manager. This has given her an additional depth of understanding and an appreciation of homeopathic medicine and its many applications. She created the popular Homeopathic Children’s Kit and wrote the accompanying book, “Homeopathic Medicine for Children, a reference guide for treating the common complaints of childhood”.
At present, she is taking a sabbatical from private practice while she roams New Zealand in a camper van and works out where she might settle. She continues to work for the M&P lab from NZ, in her new role as an executive advisor.
