My goal is to help you feel better naturally. I promise to always tell you if you should see a doctor. I don’t have the cure for cancer – although I sincerely wish I did. I can’t wave my hands over your broken bones to heal them, although again, I wish I could. Herbalists are not magicians! We are real people trying to help you using natural remedies. But, as with doctors, if you’re not honest with us about your conditions, we can’t help at all, and could hurt you becuase you didn’t tell the truth.
I have been researching herbal medicine for over 10 years and continuing my education for many years. Some of my more recent courses include:
- Penn Foster Career School, Herbal Studies Certificate, January 2013

I am constantly researching! I have conditions that are unfortunately incurable, Meniere’s Disease, Chronic Pain (Acute Cutaneous Nerve Entrapment Syndrome that after surgery I have lowered the pain level a bit but there are no more options available), Polycystic Kidney Disease. As well as conditions that are stable but still require care, hypothyroidism, menopause, migraines.
Because of my research, I’ve been able to replace pain management for my chronic pain after pain medicines were denied by my pain clinic (another story), reduce menopause symptoms significantly, and improve my immune response to colds and flu, and relieve my own migraines without prescripiton medications.
I’m not an anti-vaxer. I believe in vaxines, and that they have saved lives. (I ALWAYS RECOMMEND GETTING YOUR FLU SHOT) I’m not a doctor, but I believe I can help my doctor help me. Always talk to your doctor about any herbal remedies you want to try to ensure there are no contraindications with your current prescriptions.
With me, you’ll always get honesty, if I don’t know, I’ll tell you. I promise.
