Meet Emily Boese
Medical Herbalist & Nutritionist
Hey, I'm Emily!
I am a qualified Nutritionist & Medical Herbalist with a Bachelor of Natural Medicine, and I offer one-on-one health assessments and individualized treatments to help you get your health back on track.
I work with all sorts of health conditions but have a particular interest in digestive disorders and immune issues (chronic and recurring infections, autoimmune conditions).
I love playing outside, growing and eating good food, and drinking a bit of nice wine or a good, hoppy IPA.
I am originally from Saskatchewan but spent 12 years living in New Zealand, where I studied natural medicine at the South Pacific College of Natural Medicine. Hence why my business is named after a NZ tree!
I am a Professional Member of the BC Herbalist's Association which ensures that clinical herbalists have appropriate levels of training, continuing education, and maintain a code of ethics.
My approach to health is all about balance.
Nutrition and natural medicine are incredible tools, especially for chronic conditions. But I am also endlessly grateful for modern medicine and technology. So let's combine them, and get the best of both worlds!
