Herbs

Herbs have been used for medicinal purposes throughout human existence, and many of the botanicals we call on today are the same plants used by our ancient ancestors. I offer organic Rainforest Remedies, Ltd. Belizean herbs in both dry and tinctured forms, with individually formulated herbal compounds and proprietary blends to support your physical health. I also offer pre-formulated herbs and supplements from Standard Process and MediHerb, which are the highest quality supplements available.

Traditional and Western Training: A Blended Perspective

With training in Belizean herbs and Western clinical nutrition, I have the benefit of understanding the effects of herbs on the body from multiple perspectives, including from a physiological standpoint. Both schools of thought recognize that disease and disorders can be caused by a combination of factors. While one school looks to lab results to assess issues like hormone imbalance and autoimmune disease, the other looks at the whole person to understand root causes and presenting symptoms. While they arrive at their purposes differently, both perspectives recognize that each person must be treated individually, according to their specific needs.

 

I’ve completed more than 200 course hours of study in clinical nutrition and herbalism. I studied traditional Belizean herbalism under Rosita Arvigo, who was my mentor for over a decade. Rosita set a place for me at the table of the lineage of her teacher, Don Elijio Panti and the teachings of the Maya traditional healers. I completed my professional training in applied clinical nutrition through MediHerb and Standard Process.
