I searched for years for my true calling and as much as I could settle in lots of different positions, and master many of them, nothing felt right. Until I found Herbalism.
My mum is a Homoeopath and after many years I thought – why not try something in natural medicine? An alternative therapy? I knew I didn’t want to be a Homeopath with those little white pills. But I did like the sound of helping people. I like trying to help people restore their ‘core balance’. I like to think that we all have a thread of golden light in us. My job as a Herbalist is to restore that balance and bring us back into alignment again. Restore that ‘golden rod’ of light that runs through each one of us.
Being a Herbalist isn’t just about herbs.
It’s about being good to yourself. Finding harmony in ourselves, being a good person, spending time in nature, taking notice of what our bodies are telling us. Learning to listen to our inner voice.
Herbs aren’t meant for long term use.
They can act as a fantastic prop for a short term problem but what I am looking to do with every person that I treat is to teach them to treat themselves. Learn to listen to our bodies when they are exhausted. Learn the language. I want people to take their health care back from health providers. Learn and believe that you can do that.
Being a Herbalist is a gift. A gift that I give to you. A gift of empowerment and self-belief. And of course, I will give you herbs and share my wisdom with you. It is my true belief that Herbalism should not be shrouded in mystery. That’s why there is so much information out there about herbalism. But if you want proper treatment, you come to a Herbalist.They know about dosage, interactions and what herb to use for what condition.
In the same way that if you want to learn about something properly, you go to a professional.
