Our culture tends to rely heavily on pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medications for common ailments and problems. So many people are looking for the “magic bullet” for medical and health concerns, undergoing invasive procedures and drowning their bodies in unnatural chemicals.
Our ancestors knew better. They taught us that health and healing are different. Now, herbalists and vitalists use that knowledge to advance the field of botanical and natural medicine. We’ve expanded our collective knowledge and improved the quality of life for those living with serious health conditions like HIV, thyroid disease, and cancer. Health is what you maintain; healing is what you need when something goes wrong.
We train herbalists to search, test, experiment with, and document the invaluable knowledge of the world’s most efficient and effective medicines from nature.
Imagine looking around you at any given moment and identifying each grass, weed, bush, tree, and flower; not only their names but their properties and how to prepare them for such use.
Imagine walking through the grocery store and instantly understanding which foods will hurt and which will help.
Imagine being able to determine food from poison in the wild.
Imagine being able to use those grasses, weeds, bushes, trees, flowers, and foods to address problems like chronic pain, migraines, heart disease, fevers, stomach aches, menstrual problems, sexual dysfunction, and more.
Imagine having a community of like-minded people who can help you find natural solutions to common and uncommon problems.
Imagine being the person your family, friends, and patients trust because you have the expertise and knowledge of a trained clinical herbalist.
