LORNA MAUNEY-BRODEK, Herbalista
Lorna sees patients Monday, Tuesday, and Friday by appointment at the community clinic
Lorna has been practicing herbal medicine for over a decade. She completed an herbal residency with Michael Moore at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine in 2004 and clinical studies at both the Blue Ridge School for Herbal Studies and BotanoLogos. She is the founder of the Herbalista Free Clinic and leads the Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic serving our friends on the street. 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.
CHRISTINA GIBSON, Herbalist
Christina sees patients on Thursday’s by appointment at the community clinic
Christina Gibson is a practicing clinical herbalist based in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. She studied medical herbalism and Chinese Five Phase theory at the Botanologos School of Herbal Studies with Patricia Kyritsi Howell. In 2015 she began an apprenticeship with Lorna Mauney-Brodek of the Herbalista Free Clinic, where she continues to study and practice as a volunteer herbalist offering free clinical care for underserved communities. Coming from a professional background in permaculture design, forest conservation, and urban ecology, Christina is dedicated to the promotion and practice of bioregional herbalism and the conservation of at-risk medicinal plants. She draws deep inspiration from observing how plants heal land in strikingly similar ways to how they can heal body, mind, and spirit. Christina gets her medicine from playing in the mountains and rivers of North Georgia with her dogs, Liwa and Tulsi.
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!
We are general herbal practitioners, not medical doctors, and do not diagnose disease or prescribe medications. We have experience aiding children and adults with a variety of issues. We works WITH the patient and value an open, honest dialogue about your current concerns and health goals. 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, current lifestyle review, and pulse and tongue analysis, we will create a plan consisting of suggestions for healthy daily routines and recommendations for herbal therapies. Custom formulas can be compounded in house from our full dispensary.
