The Clinic

It is my belief that our modern day health problems are, in part, due to widespread plant deficiencies. By plant deficiencies I mean:

  • low consumption of fresh, high quality, chemical-free fruits and vegetables
  • an absence of herbs as food, tonics and medicine
  • disconnection from the plants growing around us in nature

People of all nations evolved over thousands of years using plants as medicine. Along with the plant foods, herbs were used on a regular basis to maintain good health. People had a direct and enriching relationship with plants and nature. Modern plant deficiencies have been developing over the past eighty years, beginning with the onset of the chemical age. Rates of cancers, diabetes, infertility, depression and other chronic dis-eases are increasingly on the rise. The connection is obvious. To help halt and reverse the degeneration of our species, we must bring back the plants, in a big way!

My mission as a herbalist is to help people connect with healing herbs.
