Born in Canada, I grew up as someone who was always drawn to helping people heal either physically or emotionally. Through my travels and walks through life, I found my passion for herbal medicine. From 2016 - 2020, I was working through an intensive clinical herbalist diploma program by the past president of the Ontario Herbalist Association (2005-2015) Diane Kent. The hands-on classes and medical background has trained me to obtain the same assessment skills as a doctor as well as mixing in our holistic approach to illness. My goal throughout our time working together is to find the underlying cause of the problem, once identified, it is this which is treated rather than the symptom alone. Suppression of a symptom will not rid the body of a disease, but using remedies to restore the balance of the body will enable it to mobilize its healing ability. Herbal medicine can be used to treat almost any condition. Common complaints that typically respond well to herbal medicine include skin conditions, digestive complaints, and hormonal imbalances. Heart disease, diabetes, headaches and mild to moderate depression can all be treated. Almost all chronic disease is best considered from a herbal and lifestyle perspective before resorting to stronger drugs.
