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.
My nursing experience gave me an in-depth understanding of how the human body works and the ways in which it can heal itself.
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 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.
