What does Hedgewitch Holistics do?
Hedgewitch Holistics offers a modern-day, urban spin on the hedgewitch tradition. I strive to help my community heal, prevent, maintain and thrive through natural, holistic nutrition therapy that may include elements of folk medicine, herbalism, Wise Woman traditions, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and more.
Like good, quality food, I believe that everyone in my community should have access to my services, so if you are a Detroit resident and would like to discuss alternative payment arrangements, please let me know. I am always willing to work on a sliding scale or barter basis, so that you may get the advice and guidance you need to heal.
What is a hedgewitch?
A hedgewitch is a solitary practitioner of the herbal arts – both medicinal and spiritual. She is the person you call when you develop a rash or get a toothache and the doctor or dentist is unavailable. She is the person you consult when strange things go bump in the night or you are certain that someone just gave you the evil eye.
Her cupboard contains the remedy for what ails you – physical and spiritual.
Heather Mourer (that's me!) is an herbal and holistic nutrition consultant and educator. Mourer studied nutritional therapy under renowned holistic practitioner KP Khalsa and is currently studying herbalism under "godmother of American herbalism," Rosemary Gladstar. Mourer is a 2016 alumna of the SEED Wayne Fellowship in Community Food Systems Planning at Wayne State University – with her research focused on food systems and food as medicine in the Banglatown neighborhood of Detroit. In addition to formal education, Mourer has more than a decade of self-taught experience in using food as medicine to heal friends, family and herself and continues to attend workshops and classes with some of the greatest herbal healers in the country, as often as possible. Mourer's specific areas of interest in holistic healing include: women's health, LGBTQ health, harm reduction care and pet care.
