What is an Herbalist?
I have been asked that question a thousand times!
Herbalists are Educated Professionals
that are educated through an established Herbalist Program from a college or univeristy- in person or online.
Herbalists are experts on the uses and precautions of all forms of herbs and herbal supplements. They understand and respect the benefits as well as the pre-cautions using herbal medicine practices.
Many people in America are taking several pharmaceutical drugs at once and want to tuen to herbs for relief. This is where is gets techinical, the more challenging aspect of herbalism.
Herbalist should not judge or shame others. People are the way they are for several factors- Health, Nutrition, Environment and Emotional States. We strive to help others unconditionally and individually through Herbal Nutrition, Therapies and Remedies.
Many Herbalists have other degrees, credentials and certifications to compliment their work. Reiki Masters, Massage Therapists, Nutritionists, Nurse Practioners, Aromatherpists to name a few.
Herbalists vary in their specialities. They may be Product Makers, Herbal Practitioners, Formulators, Farmers and those that Write, Consult with and Educate others.
