#24 Paul Bergner on Herbalism and Vitalism, Following His Calling, and Overcoming Demons

Pacific Rim College Radio

Paul Bergner has studied and practiced natural medicine, medical herbalism, and nutrition since 1973. He is the Director of the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Portland, Oregon, and for years has served as a visiting faculty member at Pacific Rim College. His online course “Systemic Inflammation, Food Intolerance, and Autoimmunity” is the most popular stand-alone course at Pacific Rim College Online and receives rave reviews from nearly all who take it. This episode with Paul has many unexpected turns and twists, including a look at naturalism, a harrowing battle with addictions, and many gifts that have emerged from his hero’s journey of relentless surrendering. We also talk in detail about the more expected, such as Paul’s courage to start a school of herbalism, founding the Medical Herbalism journal, and the seven books that Paul has authored. Paul is legend in the field of herbal medicine and vitalism who has inspired countless to explore their calling into natural medicines. It was an honour to sit down and connect with him, and I was humbled by his courage to share so much of his personal narrative in such intimate detail. Perhaps you have come to this episode to learn more about herbal medicine. Paul delivers on this and also offers a dose of raw vulnerability that you were likely not anticipating. I hope you enjoy this episode of Pacific Rim College Radio with Paul Bergner.
