Personal herbal consultations are one way for a person to learn more about the health of their whole being – body, heart and mind. As a herbalist, Julie shows how plants can be used to support general health and well-being. Her process is one of education and applying plant information as appropriate to each person’s health topic of interest. Through education, sharing of information, experience and ideas this is a dialogue about you, health and how plants can be integrated to improve one’s lifestyle.
Plants can be integrated into our life as friends in a pot in the kitchen window, dried or fresh for tea, cooked in food, powdered in capsules or tinctured in alcohol. Common uses for herbs are to keep the body strong through the winter to avoid colds and flu, to help support the body in getting rid of bacteria, viruses and fungus as well as and helping the body-mind-spirit to relax. Imbalances in one’s life can often be resolved with one or two plants.
