I am practicing herbalist and my greatest passion is educating individuals on the use of herbal medicine, honouring our innate connection to nature, while empowering them to be involved in their own health and wellness.
I am dedicated to teaching and promoting a lifestyle of wellness and vitality through primarily the use of medicinal herbs, but also through nutrition, and optimal health practices. I am particularly passionate about heart health, stress and disease, and women’s health.
What is Herbal Medicine all about?
Plants have been used from the earliest times to heal both humans and animals, and herbal medicine is still the most widely used medicine world-wide today. We have an innate connection with nature – the cells in our bodies are biologically familiar and compatible with the natural chemicals found in plants.
Botanical medicine refers to the use of a plant’s seeds, roots, leaves, bark, berries, or flowers for medicinal and health purposes. As one of the oldest medical systems in the world, herbal medicine has once again become mainstream as people look for a better model of health care, and improvements in analysis along with advances in clinical research prove the value of herbs in treating and preventing disease.
Herbal medicine has been used throughout history to ease a wide variety of illnesses and is gaining more recent popularity as more people are looking for alternatives to the many side effects associated with modern medicine. The gentle and effective healing properties of whole plants are able to restore their natural state of health. Herbal medicine is incredibly safe and effective, used both alone and in conjunction with conventional medicine. As a herbalist, I focus on treating the whole person rather than just a diagnosed condition or a set of symptoms. Your physical condition, past medical history, diet, current supplements and medications, and any emotional issue along with your lifestyle are all factors in your health.
