The Herb Guy (Steven Horne)

steven-zion.jpgHi, I'm Steven Horne, author, teacher, herbalist and natural healer.

I haven't been much of a blogger. I like to write articles and do webinars most of the time. Nevertheless, I created this special place on the website where I can post my thoughts and special messages from time to time. So permit me to ramble and rave here once in a while.

The Immune System is the Real Hero in Vaccination

Yesterday I made a mistake in posting a link to an article about vaccines that was extremely poorly written. I am guilty of falling prey to one of the things I dislike, which is seeing a "headline" that makes a point I like but failing to look mor...

Are We Being Deceived?

I just finished a workshop on the spiritual dimensions of healing at the Utah Foot Zone Conference in Salt Lake. Healing has always been a spiritual thing for me, but I try to dodge talking about religion, as I’m more interested in spiritual princ...

Domestic Violence and Gender

I want to write about a topic that many people in our society are blind to because the discussion about domestic violence and partner abuse tends to be very one-sided. Mass media would lead us to believe that violence between men and women tends t...

My Thoughts on Chemtrails

Vaccines: Risk versus Benefit

I've been sharing a lot of articles and links on FaceBook about vaccines primarily because I'm really concerned about the push to do away with parents legal rights to chose not to vaccinate their children. I'm also concerned about the increasing p...

Tending the Garden of Our Mind

As the photos that accompany this article suggest, I love to garden. The past three years I've been able to greatly expand the garden areas on my one acre using some wonderful techniques I've learned in the past couple of years. Learning how to ga...

The Myth of Medicine or "Take 10 Pills and You're Fine"

I frequently get emails or Facebook messages from people asking me for medical advice. They want me to tell them what herbs or supplements they should take for whatever disease they or a family member have been diagnosed with. In other cases, i...

Thoughts on the Ebola Scare

As I write this, it's early October, the month for Halloween. Halloween is the time when we celebrate the more macabre side of life. It's fall, so plants are dying back and animals are seeking shelter for winter. As summer dies, it's as natural to...

Quality Control Issues in Our Industry

Last week, Merry Lycett Harrison, a professional member of the American Herbalists Guild, posted a link to an article about quality control issues with Young Living and DoTERRA essential oils, called Damning Evidence that Young Living and DoTERRAs...

Think Strategies, Not Remedies

My first herb book was Back to Eden by Jethro Kloss. I tried many of the remedies he suggested and sometimes they worked and sometimes they didn’t. I was a bit confused, primarily because he suggested remedies, but gave me no real understanding of...

The Story Behind Our New Book: Modern Herbal Medicine

In 1986, I was working for Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP).  As an employee, I was very inhibited in what I could say about the company’s products because of the strict government regulations about making disease claims for herbs, vitamins, miner...
