A little bit about our Herbalist
"I have always loved the dirt, the plants, trees and NATURE! I grew up in the dirt & The mountains of Idaho, which made for a truly blessed life. It was not until I suffered a very grave illness myself, that I came to TRULY understood the power of natural healing. I always thought that expensive doctors would know better than I did, surely ... right? It turned out that the "treatment" for an illness I had, actually CAUSED the type of cancer I ended up with. This made my heart drop, and infuriated me that for the rest of my life, I would be dependent on a chemical medication because of something that was supposed to save my life.
In the days and months after surgery, I became frustrated with doctors that seem to pay more attention to a computer screen than to my health or how I was feeling. In order to survive, and have a body I could live inside, I started to match technical education with the knowledge I instinctively seemed to have. I started to solve my own problems. I learned that WE are the experts on ourselves, that to be truly treated a persons entire body, mind, lifestyle, and Spirit must be integrated into the healing process.
I am not against modern medicine, and in many cases it is the path one must take to survive. I do believe that many of our common illnesses and side effects of major illnesses can be delt with from a natura and nutritional perspective."
