Dr. Jeff Block

Nurturing Nature® Consultancy Group

Since prehistoric times, human beings have recognized that a profound relationship exists between plants and health.  Ancient healers were among the earliest of civilizations’ most accomplished botanists, and would have been regarded poorly if they failed to keep their plants alive.  Without horticultural knowledge and the ability to sustain plant-derived remedies, healers would lose their formulary and most certainly would have failed at their craft.  The earliest physician healers included Imhotep in Egypt (2667-2648 BC), and Hippocrates in Greece (460-370 BC) who understood and recorded ancient plant remedies that have withstood the test of time.

Continuing in this noble tradition, Nurturing Nature® is pleased to announce professional services provided by Jeffrey S. Block, MD, PA and Associates.
