Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Daisy and Mario
Posted on: November 16, 2003
I am a little nervous of taking herbal medicines without consulting an expert about the combinations, quantities and effects. I looked up some info about the specific complaints in Mark Tierno’s infoguide on your site. Is there a consultant for specific aliments that we could have an appointment with at your place there? We’re from up north.
Richters does not provide health care services. Our specialty is growing herbs, including hundreds of medicinal herbs. We recommend that you consult a qualified herbalist for advice on your specific ailments.
Susan Eagles, our online medicinal herbs expert, has an independent practice in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, but she is currently on sabbatical in the Amazon working on a herbal project and won’t be back until the spring of 2004.
The Ontario Herbalists Association website (www.herbalists.on.ca) has a listing of professional members. As a former member of the board of directors of the OHA, I can recommend the OHA’s professional members.
