Women Herbalists & Healers
with Phyllis D. Light, MA & Matthew Wood, MS
Women have always been healers, caring for their families and their communities while passing on their knowledge through the generations. Their accepted roles were relegated to midwifery, children’s care, and first aid for wounds and broken bones.
But they were much more.
In fact, these women were the holders of folk medicine and without their passing knowledge to others, folk medicine would have been lost.
These women learned from other women in their families, from friends, and from apprenticeships, but were generally excluded from academia. They were often scorned for their devotion to healing and caring for the infirm and at certain times in history, were even killed as witches because of their knowledge.
Quite often, these women often remain nameless. Even so, we also have a debt of gratitude to pay toward these women, as well as the indigenous cultures of North America, whose knowledge of “female remedies” are revolutionary to the holistic care of the female body, including Te-La-Nay, a local healer in Phyllis’s area.
There are women that have also blazed trails and continue to leave a legacy of herbal knowledge which we can all benefit from. Some of the women you will hear about include:
