All children have an innate, deep, meaningful and instinctual relationship with the natural world. A Child’s desire is to connect with nature through their senses, experiential play and discovery. When a child is offered access to continuous connection to the natural world from conception to birth and throughout their lives, their overall health has a true advantage in finding balance and strength.
Using Herbal Medicine with children is incredibly effective when administered appropriately. Figuring out how to use plant medicine with kids can be challenging, everything from finding the correct dosage to what herbs are safe to use and especially compliance can be a stumbling block in getting what is necessary in place for healing and nourishing our children.
Colleen Emery began teaching parents and caregivers how to implement herbal medicine for children in 2003 when she created the Home Herbal Helper. This dynamic, early workshop offering provided the skills needed to strengthen the immune system function and create strong foundational wellness and vitality for the whole family by utilizing safe and effective measures of plant medicine.
In the years to come Colleen’s Herbal Medicine practice broadened and grew and now 17 years later, Colleen has seen countless families in practice helping all ages with a variety of health conditions, supporting their wellness and empowering parents and caregivers to feel confident to use plant medicine with their children. .
