Nysie Watson was born to be an herbalist, it seems.
"All my life I've been aware of an alternate way of healing," she says. "We used to pick mushrooms - shiitake, chantarelles - my mother could name the names of almost all the plants we'd find in the Pacific Northwest."
She got her degree in Ag. Horticulture from the University of Oregon, but that's not what made her an herbalist.
No, it took two devastating back injuries and a bout with lymphoma to make Watson an herbalist. The lessons she learned fighting back injuries and cancer made a lifelong impression on her.
