Lily Mazzarella Bio

Lily Mazzarella (MS, Herbal Medicine, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist) is the owner and lead practitioner at Farmacopia. Born in Rome, Italy and raised in the suburbs of New Jersey, Lily attended college at Wesleyan University (BA, English, 1995). After, she moved to New York City to study and write poetry.

In the midst of the average urban excitements and stressors, late-night restaurant work, and lifelong undiagnosed food allergies, she was soon confronted with a variety of health issues, including adrenal burnout, eczema, and digestive crisis. Exhausted and in pain, she found little understanding or support in common Western medical outlets for these complicated patterns.

Ultimately, the crisis changed her life: she experienced relief working with acupuncturists and herbalists, and she developed a deeper understanding of her body as an ecosystem. She took a position working with herbs and nutrients at Integral Yoga Natural Vitamin, and enrolled in the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine in Ithaca.

After graduating from NSBM in 2001, Lily continued her studies at Maryland University of Integrative Health, a pioneering institution offering the only Masters of Science in Herbal Medicine degree in the country. Throughout the intensive, 3-year, full-time program, Lily was immersed in physiology, pharmacology, herb-drug interactions, herbal materia medica, and nutrition. Her personal experiences along with rigorous training taught Lily how to bridge conventional and holistic approaches to wellness.

Lily has shared her passion for herbal medicine as a teacher, clinician and consultant. She has served as a consultant for various organizations, including Sonoma County Indian Health Services, The Ceres Project, and Premier Nutrition Labs. She regularly pursues further training and certification in fields such as Functional Nutrition and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction. Since 2006, she has been a core faculty member at California School of Herbal Studies.

In 2007, Lily realized her dream by revitalizing Farmacopia, which crosses an old-time herbal “farmacy” with the best of modern standards and practices. Lily loves to collaborate with clients and staff in a process that need not be dull and grueling— she believes that taking care of one’s health can be an empowering, life-affirming process.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.

Curamin works well

Sleep Now
Sleep Now is my new favorite cocktail.

Sleep now is a beautiful tincture that helps de-stress my mind and makes my body feel instantly calm. Sometimes other sleep cocktails can knock you out too quickly or give you a groggy feeling in the morning but not Sleep Now. I love the taste of it, maybe because I have always felt connected to lemon balm and motherwort.
Sleep Now is a soft, flowing medicine that works perfectly. My neighbor introduced me to Farmacopia and I just ended up buying a small lazy susan to display all my lovely tinctures. I use different ones throughout the day and I can honestly say they are making a huge difference in my life. My moods are much more stable now. Thank you so much, Farmacopia!!

Aw!!! This review is so sweet and we love your lazy-susan Farmacopia display!

Son loves them

Love these vitamins. My son looks forward to them everyday and usually reminds me if I forget. They seem to work well. He is a very healthy 4 year old.
