Articles

Christa writes about the medicinal uses of herbs because she believes in sharing vital information about botanical medicine. She has contributed articles to Plant Healer Magazine, Medical Herbalism Journal, Starwest Botanicals Newsletter, Moonrise Herbs Quarterly Newsletter, and Humboldt Herbalist Guild Newsletter. She is among the herbalists featured in Kathleen Brown’s book entitled Herbal Teas. She wrote the easily accessible reference Herbs at a Glance which is also featured on the website. Christa is currently writing her book, The Essential Guide to Western Botanical Medicine, slated for publication in Winter 2014. She encourages you to register for the newsletter and review her blog to obtain additional educational information on herbs, excerpts from her forthcoming book, and seasonal recipes.
