In The News

  • Our Consortium partner Jean Giblette of High Falls Foundation is having great success recruiting New York farmers to the domestic cultivation movement. Read about her work in this China Daily article, including input from Inner Ecology’s own Amanda Kreiss!
  • Edible Chicago featured Inner Ecology™ in their Spring 2014 issue. The article (PDF) turned out beautifully, and it outlines our current efforts to partner with domestic farmers and herbal clinicians to forge a local economy of East Asian herbs. Watch the accompanying video below:

  • Founding Director Amanda Kreiss published “Lessons Learned from Going it Raw” in Oriental Medicine, the newspaper of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. The article outlines her experience successfully prescribing raw herbs to her patients, as well as steps you can take toward making raw herbs the choice for herbal clinicians all over the U.S.
  • “Lessons Learned from Going it Raw” (PDF) was also published in The Illinois Acupuncturist, 2013 vol. 2, the newsletter of the Illinois Association of Acupucnture and Oriental Medicine (ILAAOM). Click the title of the article to be taken to it.
  • Inner Ecology received a generous shout-out from Jean Giblette, frontrunner of the sustainable herbalism movement and founder/director of the High Falls Foundation, in The Illinois Acupuncturist, 2012, vol. 2. In her article, “The Crops Are Growing,” Jean cites Inner Ecology as a valuable resource for herbal practitioners in Illinois. What’s more, she poignantly lays out challenges faced by the profession of East Asian herbology, new developments in sustainable herbalism, and the argument for domestic cultivation of East Asian medicinals. (Note: This article is a follow-up to Jean’s 2009 article “The Seed Is Planted” in the same newsletter.)
  • Founding Director Amanda Kreiss’s article “Protecting Herbology” was published in The Illinois Acupuncturist, 2012, vol. 1. Amanda outlines challenges faced by the practice of Chinese herbology, both locally and nationally, and suggests safeguards that we, as a community of clinical herbologists and their patients, can put in place to meet them.
