Herbalism is allowing & promoting bodily autonomy for anti-colonialism resistance, but particularly Black resistance. Whether we’re talking about emancipation from slavery or incarceration or medical apartheid, we’re talking about bodily autonomy. When we give people the skills to heal themselves as much as possible and connect that to how our ancestors would heal themselves as an act of resistance and self-determination, they gain the confidence to push back against the running narrative.
This is what we seek to do within Ancestral Herbiary, to assist you with gaining the confidence to push back against the narrative. To equip, and heal the whole person so that your quality of life can be improved.
