ACHS Holistic Health and Wellness Blog

    Valerie Lull

    Valerie graduated from ACHS in 2014 with a Diploma and Herbal Studies (Master Herbalist) as well as a Certificate in Herbal Retail Management. Valerie worked for twelve years in mental health, but by middle age, she became burned out and was looking for a different line of work. She was feeling run down, and started experimenting with herbal teas and natural remedies. She found a great deal of relief and began investigating anything that was related to alternative medicine. This interest eventually led her to the American College of Health Care Sciences (ACHS). Upon receiving her credentials in June of 2014, she began writing a blog called Simple Ways to Stay Healthy. Valerie has a passion for good health and sharing information about how to get and stay healthy. She wants to continue writing blogs and books to educate folks about the wonderful ways to get healthy and stay healthy.
