In September of 2016, an Herbal Medic team comprised of primitive engineers, herbalists, and staff members will be responding to a request for assistance from West Virginian communities in the Coal River Valley region. The health and water of these communities have been negatively impacted and severely compromised by a combination of mountaintop removal coal mining, coal slurry contamination, flooding, and the pollution of the Elk River from a massive spill of 4-MCHM in January of 2014. The Herbal Medic team will be engaging with three towns in this region: Prenter, Naoma, and Whitesville. They will be working in conjunction with Aurora Lights Herbal Medic Chapter, our West Virgina Herbal Medics Chapter. It is the goal of these teams to support the work of front-line groups RAMPS and CRMW, as well as to help these communities create water purity solutions (water filtration systems) and assist them in working with the health issues they are suffering from as a result of these toxic exposures (free community health clinics).
Get Hands On
Part of this project involves an intensive herbal clinical week that will benefit the residents of the communities. This clinical intensive week is open to herbal medicine students at The Human Path aka Herbal Medics University, as well as other selected herbal medicine schools with prior approval. To learn how you can participate in this project in a hands-on way go to the Herbal Medics, San Antonio TX meet-up page or send us an email inquiry.
A project of this magnitude requires the support of the community. We are seeking donations to help with the cost of herbal medicines and medical supplies, water purification systems and supplies, transportation, equipment, and team lodging. To be successful we need the financial support of the community at large. If you’d like to be a part of this incredible project please visit our GoFundMe page.
All donation amounts are welcomed and are tax deductible. Herbal Medics is recognized as a nonprofit 501(c)(3)organization by the IRS. A receipt will follow your donation for your tax records.
