Stuart Deeks has become fascinated by how medicines are found and brought in to use. As a homoeopath he has been involved in the introduction of some new remedies. The first was Buddleia, then Plastic Wrap, a remedy made from Cling film, and now a fungus, Amanita rubescens. He has worked in homoeopathy since 1990 and lives in Brighton, UK. He is also a violinist.
