Amelia Kellner, Herbalist
Only a physician can diagnose, treat, and prescribe for illness or disease. I neither diagnose nor treat disease. Nor do I prescribe remedies.
The human body has the innate power to heal itself. The role of the herbalist in this healing process is to consider the client as a whole person and to consult with the client concerning changes in lifestyle, diet, and supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins to foster an increased state of balance and health.
I encourage and advise customers to seek professional medical advice regarding any illness or disease they are suffering from. You are responsible for consulting a medical professional before trying any herbal additions to your diet or self care routine.
Medicine is an art, not just a science. No one can predict which herb will work best for every individual in all situations. This can only come with educated self-experimentation and experience or by seeking the assistance of those who are knowledgeable in clinical herbal medicine. The simpler the condition, the easier it is to find a solution. The more complicated the condition, the greater the need there is to seek expert advice.
Although unfavorable interactions between herbs and drugs are sometimes publicized, confirmed cases are rare. It is the responsibility of the client to discuss with their physician possible interactions of herbal supplements and any medications they may be taking.
While topical remedies are generally regarded as safe, the skin is the largest organ in the human body and absorbs anything you rub on it. Any herbs, salves, infusion blends, or tinctures you purchase from Black Sun Farm are used in or on your body at your own risk.
Black Sun Farm, in an effort to prevent more waste from clogging the planet, reuses appropriately-sized glass and heavy plastic containers after they are thoroughly washed and sanitized in boiling water. Please respect our desire to reduce the amount of trash we are putting into the environment, and feel free to donate your containers for reuse.
