Brigid does a great job in capturing her journey of health challenges and bringing spirituality to life to help a person move through difficult times.
Divya Parekh 
Author of “The Entrepreneur’s Garden: The Nine essential relationships to Cultivate Your Wildly Successful Business”

A wonderful insightful book!
A wonderful book! I forced myself to put it down a couple of times because I didn’t want to stop travelling vicariously with the author. Gallagher has written a memoir that takes to many beautiful countries but also on her journey of family loss, health and commitment to learning. Her gifts as a healer and gardener add to the beauty of the book.

Brigid P. Gallagher’s “Watching the Daisies” is not only an armchair travellers dream, it is also a mine of information for anyone suffering from symptoms of fibromyalgia, fatigue, aches and pains, and irritable bowel problems in particular. Brigid is also fortunate enough to have a kind of sixth sense and can tell if people are ill or healthy by the colours around them. She is also an expert on natural medicines and horticulture…
Stevie Turner
Author of “Waiting in the Wings”

A thrilling and informative memoir
What a great story! An alternative treatment pioneer who perseveres through countless personal and medical challenges to learn and help many. This book is extremely well written and you won’t be able to put it down. It is a charming read and makes you feel that you are everywhere Brigid travels from the UK to Majorca, Spain and much more.
It is also a primer on alternative healing techniques from reflexology to crystal therapy to aromatherapy to colour therapy to auras.
You will learn about the author’s battles with various medical conditions from dental abscesses to depression to fibromyalgia and a lot about the history of alternative practices such as Bach Flower Essences and Electro-Crystal Healing.
One of my favourite parts of the book was the description of essential oil treatment and the fact that” chemical constituents of oils” travel up the olfactory nerve to the limbic system of the brain and so can affect “memory and emotion.” I thus learned scientifically why and how this type of therapy actually works.
All in all, this is a wonderful read that will teach you a lot about yourself and personal stamina and alternative treatments. Don’t miss it.

About the Author

Brigid P. Gallagher aspired to becoming a doctor but God had other plans! She spent thirteen years in the life assurance industry, including Actuarial and Life Underwriting departments, before following her heart and training as a Natural Medicines therapist. Brigid trained in colour and crystal healing, aromatherapy, reflexology, nutritional medicine, flower essences, electro-crystal healing, radionics and E.F.T or Emotional Freedom Technique. She practised and taught Natural Medicines for 20 years, teaching at Stirling University's Open Studies and Summer Schools from 1993 to 1999, setting up the Scottish School of Holistic Healing plus a therapy centre and shop in Stirling, Scotland. In 1999, she relocated to Donegal, Ireland the home of her ancestors. Four years later, she succumbed to a mystery illness which was eventually diagnosed as fibromyalgia and possible rheumatoid arthritis. Stopping the world for 2 years, forced Brigid to reassess her life, and thus she began retraining in Organic Horticulture. She taught this subject in schools part time until early 2016. Her garden was featured in the Donegal Garden Trail in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Brigid continues her lifelong passion for gardening, singing and writing in her new life of SLOW.
