The Herbal Medics are pleased to announce their partnership with The Kitchen Table, a program created by The San Antonio Food Bank and funded by the McKenna Foundation. Located in New Braunfels, TX, The Kitchen Table program was set up to provide a variety of services to clients fighting hunger. Some of the services they offer include client choice pantry, nutrition education, children’s programs, financial literacy, and employment assistance.
Beginning in the summer of 2016, Herbal Medics will host free community herbal clinics for the clients at The Kitchen Table. We will also offer free educational classes (herbalism/gardening) on occasion.
The clinic is open to everyone, and anyone who is curious about herbalism, is proactive about their personal health and the health of their family, or has a health disorder they want to address. It is an opportunity to address health concerns, receive personalized education, and when appropriate, custom herbal formulas to assist the body in healing.
The clinic is student-managed and overseen by Herbal Medics founder, Sam Coffman. During the clinic, health issues will be discussed, the basics of herbal medicine will be explained, and herbal preparations for conditions may be suggested. There will be a student-managed herbal pharmacy (apothecary) as well, on site to prepare any of the herbal preparations suggested.
It is important to note that this is not a medical clinic, and we do not claim to be a substitute for licensed medical care. We cannot diagnose or treat; we can only listen and advise.
Consultation is free, as are any herbal preparations that are suggested. Also, clients receive points for participating in the herbal clinic (and classes). To see when the next clinic is scheduled, go to The Kitchen Table page on the SAFB website and click on the activity schedule located on the column with the hours and location of the business.
