Thomas Easley, RH

Meet Our Founder & Director

Thomas believes that herbal medicine has the potential to change the world. He’s seen people with complex and serious illnesses recover their health over and over again, despite everyone telling them it was impossible. Unfortunately, much of what is taught about herbal medicine and holistic health is driven by marketing and isn’t based in tradition, clinical practice, or good science.

Thomas started studying herbal medicine seriously in 1996 with his first apprenticeship (at 14 years old – what a weirdo). He opened his practice in 2001, and practiced fulltime until 2015, when he scaled back his practice to focus more on the school. During his twenty two years of practice Thomas has seen tens of thousands of clients.

Thomas is a Traditional Western Herbalist who also utilizes the concepts of humoral imbalances and constitution, Eclectic and Physiomedical approaches to disease, modern Naturopathic therapies, functional blood work ranges, and even the occasional reference to Sheldon’s Somatotypes. Thomas also emphasizes foods as medicine, using intensive diets, stress reduction techniques, nutritional supplements, and exercise to help his clients achieve their health goals.
