My name is Sara-Chana Silverstein and as a Master Herbalist RH (AHG) I spend my days teaching women how to integrate alternative medicine with conventional medicine. It doesn’t have to be one or the other, they blend perfectly together and that is why it is called complimentary medicine.
I introduce my clients to herbs and teach them how to include them in their lives to help them feel stronger and more able to cope both emotionally and physically. I also do TV, radio shows and pod-casts to help women (and men) learn about the gift of herbs which is often called, “Peoples-medicine” because everyone can learn how to grow their own herbs and how to use them.
Besides being a Master Herbalist, I am trained in Classical Homeopath and am a International Board-Certified Lactation/Breastfeeding Consultant (IBCLC) where I have helped over 18,000 babies successfully breastfeed. As a doula, I helped deliver 450 babies. I am also an author, columnist, key-note speaker, adult education teacher, community advocate for women and children, a wife and mother of seven children (yes, I birthed all of them).
I guest lecture at Medical Schools because I know it is difficult for our Doctors to understand how to incorporate alternative medicine into their practice because honestly it is not part of their curriculum. Herbs have been used since the beginning of time. They fell out of popularity do the availability of pharmaceuticals, but are making a robust comeback because they work! They make us feel better without side effects and are easy to use.
My upcoming book on Women & MOODS will be in book stores soon.
Knowledge is power and I hope to help give you the education so you can become empowered to be an active participate in your health and feel confident and joyful.
