Hi there

I'm really excited to let you know that renowned Medical Herbalist, Chanchal Cabrera, has joined our team for the next three weeks. Chanchal lives in Courtenay on Vancouver Island in BC where she and her husband cultivate vegetables and herbs on 7 acres and are building a healing garden retreat centre.

Chanchal is a member of the National Institute of medical Herbalists, has held the faculty chair in Botanical Medicine at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster since 2004 and serves on the board of advisors of Dominion Herbal College in Burnaby. She publishes widely in professional journals and lectures internationally on medical herbalism, nutrition and health.

Wishing you the best of health, naturally.
