Your digestive system is responsible for turning food into the energy you need to function and eliminating the waste that is not needed. Herbs can be wonderful allies in not only helping to prevent illness but can be quiet helpful in dealing with conditions when they do arise.
This book will discuss ways to prevent illnesses, support proper digestive function and thoroughly explores the function of the entire digestive system. For each section you will receive advice to support and use herbs safely and effectively to correct imbalances.

Background: (in her own words)
My initial training included 4 years of study in Naturopathy which gave me a strong foundation in natural health, healing and nutrition. However, the program I initially pursued did not place much emphasis on the traditional use of herbs, so I began studying and gaining knowledge from herbalists such as Paul Bergner, David Winston, Phyllis Light, 7Song, Matthew Wood, jim mcdonald, Thomas Easley and so many others.
Much of the information in my classes derives not only from these teachings but also from the early teachings of Samuel Thompson, the Physiomedicalists and the Eclectics, which basically evolved from the various traditions of folk and natural healing.
I have had the opportunity to share my accumulated knowledge and gain a great deal more practical experience through teaching classes locally and at various events and venues to include the annual Florida Herbalists Conference.
Although my classes focus on the traditional use of herbs, I do include additional information which includes nutrition, healthy lifestyles and supporting the body's vital energy to encourage healing.
As someone who grows and harvests plants, my teachings also advocate, emphasize and encourage sustainable ecological practices that support the environment.
Cheers and Best Wishes,
