Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with her guest Dr. Laurie Dohmen.

Growing up, Dr. Dohmen always wanted to be a veterinarian. All her schooling was in pharmaceutical medicine, but she started feeling that there was something more. She began to use organic food and alternative medicine modalities for herself and her family.  Her family thrived on this more wholistic lifestyle, and she realized that if these things were better for her family, they would be better for her patients also.

Dr. Dohmen graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997.  She has studied with Dr. Steve Marsden, Dr.Huisheng Xie, Registered Herbalist Rosemary Gladstar, and many others. She received her Masters of Therapeutic Herbalism from Maryland University of Integrative Health in 2014. She was accepted as a Registered Herbalist through the American Herbalist Guild in 2020.

In 2017 Dr. Dohmen and Dr. Kris August together started the only hands-on veterinary herbal medicine course for western veterinary practices in the USA. She is the Past President of the Veterinary Botanical Medical Association and is a member of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture, American Holistic VMA and AVMA. Dr. Dohmen owns Lowood Educational Center in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, which she uses as the home of Purple Moon Herbs and Studies’ trainings.
