We had the good fortune of connecting with Iris Diaz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Iris, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I grew up in a home where we ate a traditional western diet of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all of which contained some animal products and little to no vegetables. When I was in kindergarten, I was diagnosed with ADHD, and during my teenage years, I was said to have an overactive thyroid. However, I continued this diet for all of my youth and my early twenties.
About seven years ago, I decided to stop eating pork, primarily Wendy’s sliders with bacon, and ended up eliminating fast food. That is where my journey began.
I learned herbal remedies and learned different concepts such as the Doctrine of Signatures and the Four Humors. I took classes at the Herbal Academy, where I was certified three times in herbalism and switched from pursuing a business degree to a therapeutic herbalism degree.
When I became pregnant with my now 3-year-old son Enzo, I decided to eat only organic and chose a non-medicated water birth. I supplemented with herbal remedies throughout the entire pregnancy and had a healthy baby boy. After giving birth to my son, I maintained the same holistic approach, and it has led to a healthier and overall happier life. The herbal remedies I learned about and applied in my home support the body, mind, and soul.
After years of applying these methods, I’ve decided to share what I have learned and now provide those same herbal remedies online at www.herbiriselizabeth.com.
What should our readers know about your business?
Our mission here at Herb Made by IrisElizabeth is to empower people by helping them along the path to holistic healing. We educate our customers on all herbs available in our store.
We currently offer loose powdered herbs, herbal capsules, herbal loose-leaf tea, and herbal accessories, like tea infusers.
Our herbal blends are made from wildcrafted and organic herbs. Wildcrafted herbs grow without human intervention and in their natural environment. Our herbs are inspected for quality, and they are free of fillers, additives, and other artificial ingredients.
We feel that these herbal remedies should be accessible to everyone, so it is very important for us to provide affordable products.
