In my option as a public health professional, black healing should start within ourselves and communities using the tools that earth has gifted us. I believe that this is the only way to improving our future.

“Participating in Black Healing October is important to me because it is an excellent opportunity to give back, I am a lifetime student of herbalism, and a firm believer in self healing.
I have been allotted many blessings in my lifetime. Many of these blessings, I do not deserve and have sometimes taken for granted. Allowing me to present at Black Healing October will grant me the opportunity to share and show appreciation for my blessings.
One of these blessing is being a lifetime student of Bush Medicine. Bush Medicine is the use of a country’s native herbs for the prevention and treatment of different ailments. As a child, I grew up learning the herbs and processes used in Bush Medicine. This wealth of knowledge has provided me with a healthy life and a successful business. Anecdotal evidence shows that Guyanese Bush Medicine has been effective in treating many ailments including anxiety, cancer, asthma, digestive problems, etc….
With all of the trauma in the minority community, I believe that self healing should be the preliminary platform to healing of physical wounds, emotional disturbances, destructive behavior (anxiety, rage, addiction, shyness, etc…), and\or toxic relationships. Herbs are a very effective tool that can be used to start and successfully complete this process of Self Healing. I would love to provide the knowledge for people from my community to help them self-heal.”
