T. Heather Herdman, PhD, RN, Clinical Herbalist
My herbal philosophy is a simple one – stay as close to the real plant as you can, and eat or drink it if possible.
Each plant can have a multitude of uses, so focus on the herbal action you are looking for, and whenever possible, find a plant ally that is local.
My background in nursing (I hold a B.S.N. in nursing from University of South Carolina, and a M.S. and Ph.D. in nursing science from Boston College), enables me to combine Western health care knowledge with traditional and contemporary herbalism, to create a holistic view of health and wellness.
My passions include supporting others to learn to integrate herbs into their daily lives by preparing meals that incorporate these wellness “powerhouses”. Providing the most evidence-based
information possible to my clients enables them to take control of their own health and well-being, and to make decisions that meet their personal needs and values. I’m truly blessed to walk with clients on their journey of health and well-being!
