Tell us about herbs. What are herbs, and why should people be using them?
Herbal medicine products are dietary supplements that people take to improve and have optimal health without the side effects of many commercial medicines. They are a supplement of food -- a plant or plant parts that are used for its scent, flavor, or therapeutic properties.
Herbs contain powerful stimulating nutrients, which have been used since the beginning of time worldwide as a safe and effective way of achieving optimal health. Seeds, roots, stems, berries, and flowers of plants are used to treat illnesses and conditions.

When I was diagnosed with eczema, I was able to control it with the herbal products that were administered to me by an herbalist specialist. The alternative medicine worked. I kept praying and meditating and my dream came true — I was cured. It took approximately a year for my skin to improve and become healthy again.
Some people seem to be a little afraid of herbs sometimes. Is it something we should be worried about?
You’ll find that herbs are mentioned and discussed in the Bible, and I know that God would not put something here for us that he didn't want us to use or have as a natural resource.
I recommend to folks that they should use herbs because it has fewer side effects than commercial medicine. Herbs restore the organs and do not tear them down like prescription drugs do. Herbs can be are used for most injuries, diseases, and illnesses such as early-stage cancer.
For example, garlic is one of the most effective herbs. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties. It also builds up resistance to flu, colds, pneumonia, and infectious illness. Garlic heals ulcers, wounds, and since it thins blood, it can help to lower cholesterol levels. It is most effective when eaten raw and fresh. It may give bad breath, but now you can get garlic in capsules and it is odorless.
I helped people because I discovered that growing old doesn't make you old, rather, it is being sick make you old. I want to see people well and not sick because you only get old when you are sick. When you are well, you have energy and feel good about yourself. You will smile and not be sad.
Is it easy to use herbs?
Herbs are very easy to use. You can drink them as a tea, take them as a tablet; there are also tinctures. There are also herbs in liquid forms, if people cannot take capsules; herbs also can come in powdered forms that can easily be added into favorite recipes or even in a nice refreshing smoothie. Herbal oils can also be used as a topical agent and applied externally. Everflex, for example, is a cream to alleviate arthritis, but it is also available as a capsule to take internally with water as well. In a nutshell, herbs are very easy!
When did you decide to become more than a customer, and to begin helping others? And why?
I started in alternative medicine because I wanted to learn how to take care of my own health. I started helping my friends and others after some of my friends shared their experiences with herbs as an effective alternative to commercial medicine. I found that I enjoyed helping others. I help them because I believe in herbs.
I have treated customers with gout, diabetes, high blood pressure, stress, anxiety, fatigue, and obesity. I have many successful stories from some of my clients who were very satisfied with the treatment regimen we developed together, and they were glad they tried an herbal remedy.
I have a wonderful story about a man I treated with gout, this man hadn’t walked in 3 months. Two days after taking the herbs I recommended for him, he was driving and got a speeding ticket!! I couldn’t believe it—this happened 2 days after taking herbs.
Another client had diabetes and had been treated by conventional medicines for 13 years. He tried the herbs and his blood sugar came back to normal and his cholesterol also came back to normal. He said he was happy to find he had a lot of energy to do things he hadn’t been able to do, like walk two miles daily as well as washing his two cars on a regular basis.
I feel very good that I help people with their health and improve their quality of life.

What are your qualifications?
I am a Herbal Specialist, and a Certified Natrual Health Practicioner. This means that I specialize in helping people meet their nutritional goals. With so many types of vitamins and other supplements on the market, it's difficult to know which products can help you achieve your health-related goals. I can recommend what people can take for whatever they're ailing from. I cannot cure them or diagnose them. I try to keep it simple.
What is it that you are able to do now to help people?
I do seminars in private homes, I have done TV interviews sharing information on how to keep their health together; I’ve also participated in festivals, church health fairs, and schools. I can give folks hope because a lot of people are not too familiar with natural medicine, I tell them it's right in their kitchen.
You have to remember that there are four components to health: diet, exercise, cleansing, and meditation. I have this thing called G-O-M-B-S. That is the diet that includes “G” – Greens (dark leafy vegetables are the best), “O” – Onions, which has antioxidant properties, “M” – Mushrooms, another antioxidant, “B” – Berries and Beans, and “S” – Seeds. It’s also important to drink water – 8 glasses a day as they say. The more your body is alkaline, the less likely you are to be sick. The more acidic your body, the more likely you are to be sick.
These are the things I share with my clients. You have to give the body nutrients in order to function. You want to have optimal health so you will have a long, healthy life.
