"Be Your Self
Journey with Knowing"
Dr. Ed Carlson
Originally from Achill Island, Co. Mayo, Ireland, my interest in exploring nature and the plant kingdom, inspired me to further my studies in health and wellbeing and specifically plant and herbal medicine and naturopathy.
I am a nurse by training and previously worked in this capacity for twenty years, primarily in intensive care and emergency medicine in Germany, Ireland, and in the UK.
Having experienced hands-on the successful clinical use of healthy foods and natural/herbal medicines in one of the hospitals in which I worked, I was inspired to further my curiosity and move towards practising naturopathy and herbal medicine.
I qualified as herbalist and Naturopath in 2007 and then continued to train with Dr Robert Morse, Florida, Dr Savely Yurkovsky, New York, Dr Ed Carlson, Florida, Tricia Lane, Cork, Stars Edge, Florida, Dr Caroline Markolin, Austria.
I immensely enjoy teaching the principles of natural medicine and how they may be applied in everyday living. I also lead educational herb walks on the farm where I grow my organic herbs, and I provide full-day workshops on harvesting, preparation, and the use of wild and cultivated plants in the diet and as medicines.
I am learning more about biodynamic agriculture and implementing it in the growing of herbs and food. Together with Sean, we intend to cater to the growing need for health and wellbeing workshops, walks and talks in nature. Our farm project is a long term goal for people to enjoy but more importantly for the planet.
