Chad Cornell

Master Herbalist, Holistic Therapist

Chad Cornell has been passionately studying and practicing natural healing methods for the past 15 years.  He holds a great respect for the teachings he has received from healers of Peru, North America, and Asia. He is currently employing timeless holistic methods of healing in a modern urban context.

Chad Cornell graduated from The Wild Rose College of Natural Healing as a Master Herbalist in 2003. He is the founder of The Hollow Reed Holistic Centre and also a graduate of The Ayurvedic Institute. He aims to integrate the best of our global healing traditions with emerging scientific discoveries into the very nature of nature.

Foundational to the holistic perspective is that disease is rarely simply a physical issue. It is more often a complex dynamic of mental, emotional, and spiritual imbalance resulting from an unbalanced lifestyle. 

For the past 5 years Chad has been invited to lecture for the Integrative Medicine Program, facilitated by Dr. Greg Chernish, at the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Center Campus, and also as a part of the University of Winnipeg's Indigenous Studies Department. 

He suggests that by studying common themes found in ancient healing traditions, and interweaving them with innovative modern research, we are potentially embarking on a new and powerful system of modern medicine.

Another of Chad’s goals is to provide healing and educational retreats and programs that awaken, inspire, and empower others to reach their potential.  To do so we require a healthy relationship to the dynamic and living planet we are a part of. His mission is to continue to renew our inherent connection to nature, natural medicine, plants, and the healing capacity found within us all.  

He currently works as an herbalist, therapist, teacher, and guest speaker for both individuals and groups. He can be reached at [email protected] or 204-786-0820.

Consultations with Chad Cornell

Consultations take approximately 90 minutes. You will be asked about your personal medical history, main symptoms, diet, lifestyle, etc. Chad uses this information along with the assesment of the pulse, tongue, iris, and other characteristics to determine a uniquely personal holistic program. Developing a healing program is a co-operative process between both the client and the Herbalist. You will be educated on the remedies, lifestyle suggestions, and reasearch recommended, empowering you to take charge of your own healing process.

Full consultations are $90, and follow-up consultations are $30. Discounts apply for seniors, students, and low income individuals/families. Please call us at 204-786-0820 or email us for more information or to book an appointment. Phone/Internet consultations are available for those who are in remote situations and cannot make the visit in person. Please inquire for details. Consultations with a Herbalist are of a nutritional and holistic nature, it must be made clear that a Herbalist is not a medical doctor and does not practice orthadox medicine.
