Community Clinic

After 15 years serving East Atlanta, the brick and mortar Community Herbal Clinic has closed its doors and moved online.  We now offer online consultations on a sliding scale basis, helping bring people and herbs together. 

If you are looking for in-person herbal consultations in the Atlanta area, please check out the Fleur + Forage Community Clinic located in the Kirkwood neighborhood.

About Herbalista

LORNA MAUNEY-BRODEK

contact:  Lorna@Herbalista.org

Available Monday thru Friday, 8 AM – 2 PM (Eastern Standard Time) by appointment. 

Lorna has been practicing herbal medicine for over 15 years.  She completed an herbal residency with Michael Moore at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine in 2004 and her clinical studies at both the Blue Ridge School for Herbal Studies and BotanoLogos. She is the founder of the Herbalista Free Clinic and programs including the Herb Bus and Herb Cart Mobile Clinics.  Practicing on both sides of the Atlantic, she is also a founding member of the Dublin Herb Bike and member of the Irish Register of Herbalists.  Lorna believes that in order to preserve our access to herbs we have to make them part of our everyday lives, from our kitchens to our medicine cabinets.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest and most widely used form of medicine in the world! Effective, affordable, environmentally friendly, with minimal side effects, and tantalizing to all the senses, herbs are a vital part to a healthy present and future!

Lorna is a general herbal practitioner, not a medical doctor, and does not diagnose disease or prescribe medications.  She has experience aiding children and adults with a variety of issues. She works WITH the patient and value an open, honest dialogue about your current concerns and health goals.  At Herbalista, we value collaborative care and believe that we can achieve our most vital health through cooperation between conventional and traditional medical methods.

After a thorough intake, including medical history and current lifestyle review, she will create a plan consisting of suggestions for healthy daily routines and recommendations for herbal therapies.

Initial consultations last around 1 hour to 90 minutes.  Follow-up Appointments can last up to 1 hour.
