Health & Healing
Valerie Robitaille, MS, PhD(c)
My own health journey begins and ends with herbs.
Back in High School someone gave me a book called “Back To Eden” by Jethro Kloss. The book was quite popular in the 1970s, and certainly made an everlasting impression on me. There are some worthy herbals on the shelf today but I would venture a bet they all read Back To Eden! It is the prima facie of botanical medicine.
I’ve not written my own herbal…yet, but it’s not far out in my future. I definitely needed these years to hone my intuitive skills and implement the gift of the knowledge the plant kingdom has to offer, its crowning glory, healing for humans.
Over the years my herbal efforts have changed. At the same time I was studying for my Master’s in Human Nutrition, I owned and operated a unique health center in upstate New York. I sold over 300 herbs & spices, mostly medicinal, and I prepared botanical remedies for my customers/clients.

community gardening back home drove
me to get my PhD in Community Health.
