The Journey into Herbalism

Danny's journey into herbalism began in 2016 with the desire to uncover the best natural options for people dealing with cancer. .

Before the pandemic of 2020, Danny was already a researching herbalist, focusing on adaptogenic herbs; a group of the most useful natural substances from the oldest modalities & cultures. His hypothesis is that herbs that can ease the human stress response & bring balance to the immune response could be life saving in many different situations. The adaptogens are special herbs, historically known for being safe, reducing stress, enhancing tissues and stimulating appropriate immune cell activity. He believed adaptogens with an affinity for the lungs could be beneficial in the face of a novel respiratory disease.

Expanding Herbal Horizons

Emboldened by the success of the long haul COVID-19 studies, Danny and his team have embarked on a more extensive collective case study focused on heart health. Cardiovascular issues remain a leading cause of early onset death in the United States and there has been a spikein seemingly healthy younger people dieing suddenly from issues normally expected in older people. Danny believes that whole herbal extracts hold the potential to improve overall health and well-being in the long run by nourishing and supporting key body systems and increasing our resiliency to the impacts of stress.

Danny's message to those facing health challenges is clear: "Do not allow any diagnosis to make you doubt the capability of your body to heal and return to the level of health that you are used to & supporting wellness holistically is the best way to recover from any health issue"
