HEIDI JARVIS, ND, School of Natural Medicine graduate, Herbal Medicine teacher, organic gardener, natural product creator, School Pharmacy Dispensary Director, inspires all who enter her world of strength, creativity and wisdom. Heidi shares her evolutionary transformational life journey.

“I was working at a Garden center when I heard about School of Natural Medicine in Boulder, Colorado. Truly this was a gift from God and I began my educational journey to become a Naturopath with Farida Sharan ND.

During my studies, I established my Certified Organic farm, 
Earth Pharmaceuticals, that my wonderful family supported me with and worked at Vitamin Cottage’s Natural Grocers. I also went to India with Farida Sharan in 2001 to experience naturopathic Ayurveda treatments to understand what patients go through to achieve healing.

In 2008, I graduated with Naturopath, Master Herbalist, and Master Iridologist diplomas and a Flower Essence Practitioner Certificate. I also became a Reiki Master/Teacher and received a Clinical Aromatherapist certificate from Dr. Raphael d'Angelo MD. My SNM Naturopath Diploma gained me entry for a PhD with the Quantum University in Hawaii.

“In my Aurora, Colorado gardens, greenhouses, clinic and herbal pharmacy, I offer a practice called Body Windows, natural products by my company Natur, and Earth Pharmaceuticals farm for vegetables, herbs and essential oils. I feel blessed sharing my experience to  bring top-quality, pure and honest healing products and plants to the world.”

“I witnessed healing within myself with profound changes in my body, emotions, mental state, observed transformation in my irises with Iridology, and with my family. Healing comes in universal forms within our flower of life through LOVE. I see, I feel and I dive into this field of study. I bow in humility as I fulfill this life’s purpose.”
