Why visit an Herbalist?

An herbalist is part of your health care team. Working with an herbalist, you can get to know and balance your foundational health, you can find out what it’s like to actually feel good! Herbs and botanical remedies can help us balance the health of our bodies, emotions, and minds. I support you in adopting new healthy habits, provide protocols and education. I am here to answer questions, I do the research and know the plants and preperations that match with you. I am here to see you as a whole being, and hear your story. Most health issues can be addressed holistically with a combination of lifestyle, nutrition, herbs, and flower essences. 

An herbalist’s approach is simple, we generally support the nervous system and the digestive system first. Issues with energy, sleep, depression, anxiety, addiction, pain, and much more can be soothed holistically with a combination of lifestyle, nutrition, herbs, and flower essences. I am here to support and encourage you. The care we give our bodies now will reflect in the next 10 years so I see herbalism being about building a strong foundation of health and growing from there.

Why Herbs?

Using herbs is a long time human tradition where plants sustained our existence on a spectrum from daily foods to emergency medicine. We have been in relationship with these plants ever since we began on this earth, our DNA remembers this. It is only recently that we have stepped away and forgotten the ways we work with them for food, health and healing, as well as spiritual connection. So, connecting with plants is both old and new, and I believe we are more entwined than we are scientifically able to see. Our bodies, minds, and spirits respond to the herbs!

Generally, using whole plants is safer and more gentle on our bodies than our modern pharmaceuticals. The chemical structure of the pharmaceuticals are all based on chemical structures found within plants that humans found useful. The issue is, they isolated one constituent and re-created it in a lab without the synergy of the other constituents found in the whole plant. Often something is added to the basic chemical structure to make it more potent, powerful or simply patentable. We know that these drugs cause long term damage not to mention side effects. I want people to know that there really are other choices! Having health challenges is an opportunity to heal. Listening to our body’s symptoms tell of a deeper story, and when we listen, instead of suppress the symptoms, we can support our body to do what it does best, come back to balance, come back to health.

All plants have a unique effect on our bodies, and each of our bodies is different. We also all have our own unique stories, experiences, and patterns. Herbalism is taking all of this into account and finding the right foods, plants and preparations to address you as a whole being. We are seeking to create the best conditions for your body to do it’s healing.
