Women Are Naturals When It Comes To Healing

For centuries, women have been the family healers, applying herbs to aches and pains with only the knowledge passed down from our own mothers and grandmothers. Present at childbirths, attendant to aging or ailing parents or simply bandaging a child’s playtime boo-boo, women have done the day-to-day work of keeping family, community and each other well for hundreds of years.

Along the way, we gained valuable insight into how the plants and trees growing around us were suited to heal the sick and injured. A deep-rooted understanding of local plants and instinctive knowledge of their healing properties were our only guides.

When grandmother brewed a cup of chamomile tea for a sleepless child, she knew it would also relax and calm an upset tummy — not because she studied its chemistry in a lab, but through generations of experience and the wisdom of women who came before her.

This tradition of women healers is alive and well in herbal medicine today. Knowledge is still handed down from woman to woman in some families and communities, and more formally in schools of herbalism.

Hormone imbalances, sleep disturbances, digestive discomforts, mood changes, breast health concerns…these are all issues that concern today’s women. Herbalism has a high success rate addressing these problems. And it’s safe, natural, and effective.

While herbalism has an impressive history of effectiveness for female health concerns, it’s unfamiliar to many of today’s women. The native wisdom of our traditional healers has faded and been replaced by retail products and websites that lack the personal connection, professional training and trust we deserve.

Women get the best results from herbalism under the guidance of a trusted, experienced professional.

Consider visiting a trained Herbalist with a woman’s touch, where you’ll be supported and inspired to write a new story for yourself!

  1. Mo I love the new blogs/web sites! You are simply the best at what you do! 🙂 I need to come in and see you soon. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!

  2. Thank you for the reminder that we are natural healer.I have found that as we age we get better at it since we usually have also acquired more patience. My grandaughter,, who is 5 got her fingers slammed in the car door last night. Her mother was conforting her as she tried to put ice on her little fingers. She would not stop crying and it was getting worse not better. I asked gently if she would like to sit on my lap and she scooted and cuddled. I started singing soflty to her and she soon quieted down and let us ice her fingers.

    Oddly, I have found that as I got better at taking care of others but I am still not that good at taking care of myself physically. I do a great job at taking care of myself emotionally. I have learned to set good boundaries and ask for what I need. But the ins and outs of going to the doctor, dentist, mechanic, even my beloved herbalist seems harder. Time being the biggest issue.

    I have set a goal to do one self care thing a month. We will see how that goes.

    Thank you for all you do!!!!!!
