A Very Traditional African-Caribbean Herbalist.

Herbal medicine has always been part of my life.

I was born two months premature in 1965. I weighed only four pounds and could not breathe. The doctors told my mom that I only had a 10% chance of surviving and to not get attached to me. Determined not to repeat the horror of having lost a child at birth the year before, my twenty-year-old mom willed me to live, and despite a month of clinging to life in an incubator and then oxygen tent, I survived.

We had left Trinidad and immigrated to Canada in 1969 and I was definitely not thriving; I was a very sensitive, undersized and sickly child- until I spent two years back in Trinidad with my grandmother, who was a shaman and herbalist and Shango priest. She immediately saw how frail I was and started bathing me in herbs, making me drink medicinal teas and she even made me put garlic powder in my socks-which made me quite unpopular in the neighbourhood, but it worked. I transformed into a healthy child.

I went from being the smallest kid in my class to a 6’3” rugby and football player.

I have never forgotten the lessons i learned from my grandmother and the miracles I saw her perform on myself and many others. These experiences formed the core of my beliefs and practices.

I began practicing massage at eighteen and treated friends, family or strangers who wanted healing, using herbal medicine, massage and other forms of traditional healing.

Fortunately, because of natural remedies, I have rarely ever needed medical attention of any kind. I respect the knowledge and technology the medical industry has developed in the past 75 years. I acknowledge the importance and effectiveness that some drugs and surgery have brought to the world of healing. I am also aware of over-prescribing of some drugs, the dangerous side effects of many drugs and the invasive nature of many of the current practices.

I combine my family’s multi-generational expertise in herbal medicine with diet, exercise, and other more recent modalities in my holistic healing practice. Our bodies themselves are great healers. Nature is the great medicine cabinet. The challenge is for us to honour our bodies and nature the best ways we can.

Some of The Health Conditions I Treat

I can treat any health issues that do not require a trip to the emergency room or surgery. Here are some of the health issues I am most experienced in.

Pain, Injuries and Sport Injuries

My 15 years of being a competitive tennis player has given me many opportunities to develop and test remedies for short term and long-term injuries and chronic pain. I’m very proud of how effective these formulas have proven themselves to be.

Upper Respiratory Infections, Colds, Flus

Because almost no one got the flu last year, we collectively and individually have less immunity this year. Fourteen years ago, I developed the Milena Upper Respiratory formula to help protect against cold and flus. The formula combines Lomatium Dissectum, Tulsi, Osha, Boneset, Elderberries, Elder Flowers and a proprietary Botanical Anti-Viral Complex. It’s already saved me from getting ill several times during the past two years.

Stress and Fatigue

My Stress formula contains ginseng and cordyceps and other herbs that help your body cope with stress better and give you natural energy to help with fatigue. It’s also a great substitute for coffee with no side-effects.


I am the most experienced practitioner in North America in the natural treatment of herpes. We established my herpes clinic in 2003 in Vancouver, Canada and online in 2007. My book “Making Peace with Herpes”, was first published in 2006 and continues to be in print. I have helped thousands of people stop their outbreaks naturally, practice safer sex- without infecting others, have a safe natural childbirth, learn how to have “the talk in an empowering way and to overcome the stigma.


My HPV formula combines an internal and external remedy for effective treatment of cervical dysplasia and genital warts.

Anxiety and Insomnia

My Calming formula helps you stay relaxed during the day and can help you fall asleep and stay asleep at night, and calming your overactive sleep brain. Like a natural valium, without side-effects.
