Ontario Herbalists Association

Promoting safe & natural healing with plants since 1982



Herbalist’s Bio:

I got my diploma in Naturopathy in Argentina at the Universidad Abierta Interamericana in 1995. I have worked since then in Canada, France and Argentina. I studied the postgraduate course on medicinal plants  (3 years) at the Universidad Abierta Interamericana, becoming specialist in Latin American and European medicinal plants.

I worked as director (2009-2014) in the project “Recovering the Ancient Wisdom of our Ancestral Cultures” funded by the Ministry of Social Services or Argentina, this project helped us to recover the use of many forgotten plants. I studied Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology at the Shanghai and Nanjing University. I decided to become a Registered Herbalist as I think it is extremely important to work together and in association to promote the use and the benefits of medicinal plants.

When I was 17 I began practicing Tai Chi Chuan and my Tai Chi master was the first one to introduce me to the Chinese Medicine and into the world of phytotherapy, since then I never ceased to be amazed by the healing power of plants.

In my consultation after evaluating the constitutional terrain of the client I will advise to take medicinal plants plus a diet to accompany the treatment and usually Qi Gong exercises to open the necessary meridians to accelerate the healing process.”
