There is a saying in Chinese medicine, “Know the form. Forget the form.” The past 25 years has been a journey of ever-deepening understanding of the process of healing – how and why we heal… or at times struggle with this process. For me, supporting others in reclaiming health involves knowing the body in it’s miraculous minutia and wonderous multi-systems complexity, while at the same time leading each unique healing journey with spirit and intuition. I am humbled by the human will not only to survive, but to thrive, which I witness in my patients every day. Together, with the forces of nature as wind at our backs, we do the detective work, problem-solving, leaning into challenges, and tuning into the body that is required to heal. Generating life force energy and eradicating illness in this way often leads to lasting vibrant health!
Hello! My name is Magdalena. I moved to the mid-Hudson Valley to pursue what I believe will be an invaluable experience to further my knowledge of holistic health and herbalism. My passion lies in being of service to others especially when it comes to health and holding space, and that is why I am where I am today.
I am grateful to be working alongside such kind and knowledgeable people who have already made me feel at home. I very much look forward to getting to know those of you that are part of this vibrant community.
My role at NLHC / Uprooting Lyme is to implement our Holistic Lyme Practitioner Mentorship program, and our other innovative educational and treatment programs for practitioners and patients. I also manage the herbal apothecary at the Nourishing Life Health Center. I am a student of Vitalist Western herbalism and an aspiring clinical herbalist. I come to NLHC / Uprooting Lyme with a background in healthcare, education, farming, and food system and medical activism. It’s been a dream come true to use my skills to support others walking this path, and such a joy to learn from some amazing mentors (patients and practitioners alike) in the process.
