Evidence Based Research in Herbal Medicine

Donation protected
Dear friends, supporters, and fellow advocates of holistic health, I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. My name is Robert Diaz, and I am reaching out to you today with a passion that runs deep within me—a passion for alternative medicine and the profound impact it can have on people's lives. I am thrilled to announce that this year 2023, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Alternative Medicine from the University of Everglades. However my journey in the field of holistic healing began long before that. For over 15 years, I have been immersed in the world of community herbalsm, botany, and agriculture exploring the intricate relationship between nature's remedies and our well-being based in science. It all started at age 7 in my grandparents backyard garden. I always had a fascination with plants! My dedication to expanding my knowledge led me to become a certified herbalist, having received training and accreditation from the esteemed Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine. Additionally, I have further honed my expertise through certifications in holistic nutrition and herbs and nutrition supplements by Expert Rating Services. These qualifications have allowed me to serve as a trusted guide, helping countless individuals discover the power of natural healing for the last 4 years in private and group settings. Throughout my journey, I have the privilege of being affiliated of esteemed organizations such as Herbalists Without Borders and the American Guild of Registered Herbalists. These affiliations have deepened my understanding and connected me with a community of like-minded practitioners, committed to making a difference in the world. In 2022, I was honored to be recognized as the Herbalist of the Year by Shoutout Magazine in Miami, a testament to the positive impact my work has had on the lives of others. This recognition, alongside my consistent five-star Google reviews and the success of my holistic skincare esty shop, has solidified my commitment to creating a lasting change in the field of alternative medicine. However, despite these achievements, I find myself facing a challenge—one that I must overcome to continue my mission. While my business may appear successful on the surface, the truth is that I am currently experiencing financial strain due to unforeseen circumstances. As an independent herbalist and holistic consultant, I rely solely on the revenue generated through my services, educational offerings, and products. Regrettably, I have found myself at a crossroads, where the lack of sufficient funds threatens to hinder my research and development efforts. This is why I am reaching out to you today, humbly asking for your support. By contributing to my GoFundMe campaign, you have the opportunity to be a catalyst for change, enabling me to invest in crucial research and development projects. Your generous donations will go directly towards acquiring new cutting-edge lab equipment, conducting clinical trials, and furthering my studies in alternative medicine independently with the University of Everglades, Herbalist without Borders non profit and conducting field research for publishing in various journals and databases. It's important to note that your support goes beyond just helping me; it will have a ripple effect on countless lives. With your contribution, we can unlock the untapped potential of holistic healing, enhancing our understanding of natural remedies, and ultimately benefiting individuals seeking alternative approaches to their health and well-being. I am proud to share that I am also a disabled Marine Veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and served in Afghanistan. The experiences I faced during my service have only deepened my commitment to helping others find healing and wellness especially supporting veterans. It is with the same unwavering dedication that I now seek your support. Every donation, no matter how small, brings us one step closer to creating a brighter future for alternative medicine. Together, we can empower research, break new ground in holistic healing, and transform lives for longevity. Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and for considering supporting this important cause. Your generosity will not only fuel my passion but will also play a significant role in shaping the future of alternative medicine. With heartfelt gratitude, Robert M Diaz, Kongo
