My name is Marisa Marciano and I’m a Naturopathic Doctor, Registered Herbalist, and Professor of Herbal Medicine at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine and the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.
My love for herbal medicine and the healing properties of the plant kingdom runs deep, and it’s for this reason I’ve aimed to create the kind of resource I wish I’d had while learning the wondrous ins & outs of plant medicine. The study and practice of herbal medicine is both healing and transformative, and my deepest intention is to support anyone looking to deepen their relationship with these incredible medicines.
While forging my own herbal path I learned quickly that for all the merits of memorizing herbal theory, the most meaningful approach towards accessing the healing potential of plants is through our bodily senses. Never neglect to taste, smell, touch, and take an overall ‘hands-on-herbal approach’ on your own healing & learning journey.
As a Naturopathic Physician I am available by appointment at Evoke Integrative Medicine with treatment strategies focused strongly on nutrition & lifestyle counselling, alongside individualized phytotherapy. Appointments can be booked online here, and find out more about me at my personal website www.doctormarciano.com.
