Most people today are malnourished—even those who regularly eat what they consider “healthy” food, says Bonnie Rogers, a local clinical herbalist and wellness coach. On March 28, she will teach Nourishing Your Body for Spring, introducing the best herbs and foods for starting the season out on a new path to mind-body-spirit health.

Through her customized three-month programs, Rogers works with clients one-on-one to help them nourish their bodies to overcome sluggishness or irritability, or feelings of being stuck or overwhelmed. Many of her clients are women living with stress, anxiety, menopause or digestive issues, who are looking for a simple way to increase their energy and become more balanced.

“I believe that your body can heal using nourishing foods and herbal medicine,” she says. “By working with herbal infusions such as nettles, oat straw and many other herbs, you can heal your body from the inside out. During the spring, for example, you want to strengthen your organs with mineral-rich plants and tonics such as chickweed, dandelion and garlic mustard.”

Beginning in May, Rogers will teach a six-month program for people who want to make herbal medicines and learn how herbs can help heal the body.

For consultations, contact Rogers at 914.923.4346 or [email protected]. She offers a free 15-minute “get acquainted” session, and Natural Awakenings readers will receive 15 percent off their first consultation program. For more info or to register for the spring workshop, visit BonniesHerbals.com.
