Laura Bylsma

Herbal Research & Technical Advisor

BSc(Hon), Registerd Medical Herbalist, Naturopath

Having gained a Bachelor of Science honours degree from the University of Otago in Pharmacology and Toxicology, Laura gained experience in editing health care publications before moving into a Pharmacovigilance role with an Australian-based Biotech company.

Her interest in plant medicine grew from seeing the failings of the current medical model, where patients where often taking multiple medications for conditions that were largely preventable or manageable with safer natural alternatives. She went on to train as a Medical Herbalist and Naturopath and has been working for artemis since 2019. She uses her depth of technical expertise to guide product development, quality and safety programmes while providing advice to customers, retailers and other practitioners. She is passionate about increasing awareness and accessibility of plant medicine and working alongside the medical system to improve health outcomes.  


Laura is based in Northland where she lives off-grid with her partner and two young children. She has a strong interest in medicinal herb growing and manufacturing, which she incorporates into her own clinical practice.
