Guest Teacher

Ellen Kamhi, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, RH(AHG) is a wildcrafting herbalist, and is adept at radionics and dowsing, which recognizes the spiritual, energetic communication between humans and plants. Her children were born on an ‘off the grid’ homestead in Bisbee Arizona in the 1970’s, where she worked as an herbalist and midwife, helping women who preferred home birth. She has studied with a broad multicultural array of herbalists; including her Nona from Greece, Jamba of the Maroons in Jamaica, Dr. Anthony Kweku Andoh from Ghana, Michael Moore and Mimi Kemp in Bisbee Arizona. She is nationally board certified as a Holistic Nurse (AHN-BC), and is a medical school instructor in botanical pharmacology, author of many books, including Cycles of Life, and The Natural Medicine Chest, and offers CE approved Herbal Certification Programs. Ellen was invited to participate in an exciting Stakeholder Meeting for Research on Whole Person Health held by the National Institutes of Health - National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. The focus was incorporating traditional healing methods, including Herbalism, into Standards of Practice recommendations, due to evidence based superior outcomes in terms of efficacy and safety, as well as cost effectiveness when compared to current conventional practices. Her passions include sharing her 5 decades of in-depth herbal knowledge with individuals that will carry natural healing arts forward into the next millennium.

  • Microbiome Balance for Body Mind and Spirit - The Microbiome is a fascinating complex multifaceted living organism made up of an ever changing group of individual microscopic entities. Together they build interactive structures that are involved in two way communication with our gut, brain, skin and organs in our body, via a vast array of enzymatic, metabolic and nervous impulses, that interact in complex feedback loop mechanisms. These interactions influence digestion, mood, cognition, cardiovascular wellness, the inflammatory response, immune function, and overall health.
    In depth scientific study is currently helping to increase our understanding of the microbiome, and specific ways we can influence the individual organisms that form it, so that we create a milieu of ‘beneficial’ vs ‘non-beneficial’ organisms in our personal microbiome. In this presentation we will explore:

    • Microbiome Body- GI, Skin
    • Microbiome Brain- Gut- Brain connection
    • Microbiome Spirit- Inter and Intra Species Communication
