Herbal Med Rx
Organic Herbal Blends
for a happier healthier you!
It continues to be a challenge, although one I am grateful for, to create and manage a business where the importance of the flow and compassion and ritual are just as important as revenue and building systems, etc. My son (who has graciously created this website) is a successful Business graduate and leans on me to create and use procedures that qualify Herbal Med Rx as a business…not a hobby or charity organization. So, in the end, while I strive to be more business-like, my calling is more along the altruistic path. And so, we do our best!
Herbs have a way of feeding my altruistic tendencies. They open my heart, they share their gifts with me so willingly, they speak so gently (usually), and they teach me. So it is only natural that I pass along their gifts whenever I can.
I was fortunate enough to have begun my herbal studies at Rosemary Gladstar’s California School of Herbal Studies in northern California in the summer of 1981. Her gentle, simple way with herbs and her wise nature and humor were in such step with the way I have come to interpret herbs. I have found purpose and solace in herbs and plants ever since. She made everything seem easy, light, and simple. Hers was the first productive herb garden I had seen. Now, as I enjoy my own ever-expanding herb gardens, I give thanks and gratitude, as they bring me, and so many others I meet, joy, health, balance and inspiration.
The making of herbal medicine was perhaps my favorite aspect of learning at the school. At HerbalMedRx™, we carefully handcraft each product we produce with integrity and mindfulness, in small, fresh batches using certified organic ingredients and an occasional wild crafted herb. Keeping things organic has always been of utmost importance as I can’t think of a better, more effective way to help protect the soil, water, wildlife, air, growers, transporters, packagers, and finally, consumers all by doing that one thing–going organic!
So welcome to our Herbal Family. We are so happy you have found us and it is our sincere hope that we help inspire your herbal tendencies. We would love to see you at one of our workshops, or Spa Days, or just to stop in and take a tour of the ranch.
You can also find our products at Mother Lode Exchange, 1324 Jackson Gate Rd., in Jackson, CA.; at Rail Town Market in Jamestown, CA.; at Sullivan Chiropractic in Pine Grove, CA.; and at our Ranch Runamuck Apothecary in Pine Grove, CA.
Check out our Events section to view all upcoming workshops. Many of our workshops are being held in Jackson, CA., at Mother Lode Exchange, as it is a larger space than here at the Ranch house.
Thank you for being a part of our herbal endeavors.

Locally grown organic herbs and food are important for our planet’s sustainability. We grow many herbs and vegetables here on the ranch, and when we need to purchase them we support reputable, sustainable, companies including Mountain Rose Herbs. We never use synthetic pesticides or synthetic, non-organic fertilizers of any kind and any herbs, essential oils, or carrier oils, etc. we order are certified organic. We get excited when preparing herbal blends for balms, teas, massage oils, etc. Heck, we get excited when we see anything growing or blooming anywhere! It all keeps us connected to the natural healing cycles of this wonderful blue ball we call home and to the ancient cultures that have come before us and shown us the ways.
Onward, to the herbs!

Looking behind I am filled with gratitude. Looking forward I am filled with vision. Looking upward I am filled with strength. Looking inward I discover peace.–Apache Prayer
Affirmation for All Time
I am able, willing, and anxious to express joy and compassion.
I am grateful for the good times and the challenging times, as I learn valuable lessons from both.
I am committed to making my contributions to humanity, all living beings and the earth; and am satisfied with them, no matter how small they may seem.
I realize the importance of attitude, and it’s ability to effect those around me, so I encourage my own joy and the joy of others.
In the face of seemingly negative outcomes — politically, environmentally, socially, and so on,
I accept my responsibility to overcome cynicism.
I trust that we will weather any hardships and work together
to assist others in need.
May my actions and words lend themselves to accomplishing the above and inspire others to do the same.
