Best Of 2013: Holistic Practitioner: Valerie Blankenship

Valerie Blankenship has been relying on her extensive knowledge of herbs and plant-based remedies to help people for more than 22 years. She says many of her clients have been to doctors and been prescribed medication, and are "unhappy with the side effects, or they want to know what's available in the natural world." After taking a thorough assessment of their symptoms and physical condition, the clinical herbalist makes special formulations that may include tinctures, capsulated herb mixtures, herbal teas or even creams for skin ailments. (In conjunction with her clinic, Blankenship runs the Sage Woman Herbs apothecary, where you'll find hundreds of ready-made herbal products.) This personal attention has won Blankenship the distinction of Best Holistic Practitioner three years running. — Darcie Mankell
