After years of formal study and practice, I am excited to announce that I have been accepted as a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild, the governing body of clinical herbalists in the United States. I am proud to be a practicing herbalist, where to heal is to honor the vitalistic principle of supporting the body’s innate healing capability. My practice is committed to respecting the ancient wisdom of traditional medicine men and women, as well as learning from contemporary research methods. As a professional clinical herbalist, I look forward to advancing the profession of herbal medicine with empirical research, while remaining grounded in the truth; that herbal medicine is the people’s medicine, an accessible, living body of healing wisdom.
