Bob also consults as a product developer for herbal product companies for humans and animals, and enjoys growing many medicinal herbs in his yard. 

He serves on the board of directors for the Florida State Oriental Medicine Association (FSOMA). Bob has presented at the FSOMA, Florida Herbal, FL Earth Skills, Good Medicine Confluence, and the American Herbalist Guild conferences.

Bob lectures regularly at colleges and organizations around the US. In addition he is a member of many organizations related to herbalism, alternative medicine, and nature conservation.

I called Bob the other night cause I woke up feeling under the weather and it progressively got worse. I was going downhill fast and he suggested some certain Vitamins and left a few things for me at the counter and I was right as rain before it got a chance of really getting bad….. #noscrips …#bobisawesome!!

I have been treated by Dr. Bob Linde since I was in high school (that’s at least 20 years). His knowledge, expertise, and manner of treatment never ceases to amaze me. He puts his heart and soul into not only treating patients, but also teaching people to be herbalists. With the addition of Renee, they have gone above and beyond in so many ways that they serve the community through alternative treatments, herb walks, and educational classes and events. This place is a gem and I am so grateful to always have these two as my allies of health! Thank you so much for all that you do!

Stop in and just ask Eva at the front counter what they do there.. no matter what you have going on in life if you haven’t felt good in a while, either for a real bad reason or for no reason, I recommend you go by there for a consultation. And get ready to stick out your tongue… ahh 👅
