About Hildegard of Bingen

Born From Inspiration

Our mission at Healthy Hildegard is to become a deep resource for physical and spiritual wellness, offering a holistic approach to wellness, which is worthy of our namesake, Hildegard of Bingen. We are passionate about who Hildegard of Bingen was, and we hold her contributions to living well through spirituality, nature, herbal medicine, art, music, and discipline in high regard. After all, we did borrow her name.

Since 2014, we’ve been working on gathering information about Hildegard von Bingen and her remarkable life. Our initial motivation came from a genuine interest in Hildegard’s midlife awakening. Most of all, the notion that a purpose-driven life can begin at 40, and if we listen to our inner voice and spirit, we will find our purpose.

Hildegard became the first intellectual to establish the connection between spirituality, medicine, and self-reflection. Over the years we’ve discovered that Saint Hildegard offers not just inspiration but also much more.

Hildegard has long been recognized as a meaningful religious and historical figure. But it wasn’t until 2012 that her contributions to spirituality and medicine resulted in her canonization as a Saint and Doctor of the Church.

If you are interested in learning more about Hildegard and her herbal remedies, writings, and philosophies, you've come to the right place. Hildegard of Bingen is an incredible model of how inner awakening can influence and affect the world around you.
