Stop the guesswork and start using medicinal herbs with confidence.

Herbs have helped me overcome anxiety, improve eyesight and avoid a surgery. They have been giving me the energy and stamina I needed to keep up with my 1/2 acre garden on my own. In the cold, damp and dark winters, they bright up my mood. Not to mention the many colds that were stopped before they took hold.

The long and short of it is….herbs WORK…when they are used correctly.

Herbs are health allies you can feel 100% confident about. They are nature’s most precious gifts to all beings on Earth. Even obligate carnivores, such as felines, munch on certain plants. Herbs contain phytonutrients often lacking in our diets. They are easy to add to every day life and can be easily taken along when you go on vacation. Great! Let’s start using herbs.

But as soon as you decide to add herbs to your life… you run into SO MANY QUESTIONS!

Almost every day I have people asking me about herbs and if they can do this or that with them. Or if what they read on Google is correct.

How do I safely make herbal medicine?
What is the correct dosage?
I heard someone say this about this herb, is it true?
Is this herb safe?
Where can I learn more about herbs?
This person said this, Google said that and that and that… Who do I believe?
What are some good beginner plants to learn and grow that can be used with the whole family?
Where do I buy herbs if I can’t grow my own?
I took this herb and it didn’t work. What did I do wrong?


I know how it feels, I had the exact same questions when I first started integrating herbs in my daily life.

My solution was to go to school and learn everything. By everything, I mean from plant identification all the way to chemistry. I completely immersed myself in my studies and even grew the plants so I wouldn’t have to take time to wildcraft them.

But not everyone has time to do this. So, I spent months considering developing a course that is less academic and more hands on.

Since apart from hair, nails and cartilage there are nerves everywhere in the body, I decided to start with the nervous system. Besides, in this day and age, who wouldn’t benefit by stress relieving, nerve tissue nourishing, and mental clarity promoting herbs? Herbs are a source of nutrients, energy and vitality for the whole body. This is why I decided to create Herbs for the Nerves.

What is Herbs for the Nerves?

Herbs for the Nerves is a 4-module online course designed to take you deeper in understanding how and which herbs affect the nervous system as well as how to turn these herbs into herbal preparations.

In each module we cover one aspect of nervous system health:
