Medicines of the Earth  ~ Trusted Across Cultures

Hi, I'm Deia Pauline

a clinical energetic herbalist, health educator, integration coach, and herbal clinic coordinator. I am a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild, RH (AHG) and go by she/her.

I help people include herbal medicines, nutrition, and holistic wellness strategies to enjoy a centered, purposeful, and vibrant life.

My Story:

My own healing journey, teachers, professional experience, and the plants themselves all deeply inform my practice. Having grown up in a chaotic household eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) resulted in me having a depleted immune system, migraines for many years starting at age five, chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety.
Finding herbal medicine has helped me understand my body, strengthen my mind, and find inner peace. Flora and fungi regulated my gut, immune and nervous systems. I also used nutrient-dense foods, probiotics, breathwork and other healing modalities which has allowed me to experience ease and grace, reconnect with my true nature, and restore a sense wonder. I feel more resilient now in my late 40’s than I did in my 20’s!
My life experience and knowledge places me in a position to support others on their path in transforming their lives. I offer practical steps anyone can take to live a calm, purposeful, and exciting life.
Central to my practice is the use of plant medicines for healing from individual and collective trauma. I offer deep listening and aim to provide client-led, non-judgemental care.

Bay Area Radical Health collective showed me the power of medic collectives providing free education and care in the streets. Then I learned so much about coordinating herbal clinics from participating in the MASHH Collective, or Medicine For All Seeking Health and Healing. MASHH has provided herbal education, first aid and wellness clinics at large outdoor gatherings, resistance campaigns, and disaster zones. It’s been an honor to be in service at pop-up herbal clinics at many events from large outdoor music festivals, ancestral arts, a permaculture convention, to disaster relief and grassroots campaigns.
