ZV BOTANICALS represents creativity, authenticity and a passion for truly effective healing. Joanna Matson-Tandberg has dedicated her life to unraveling the mysteries of true health, discovering how plants and people have evolved together throughout time, and inspiring true health through the science of Ayurveda.
Joanna strives to embrace Ayurveda in all aspects of her life. She found this authentic form of healing after spending years struggling with Crohn’s and Grave’s thyroid disease, severe disk disease, and degenerative arthritis of her spine. She has learned to balance her life with mindfulness practices, herbs and exercise, and to stay disciplined in her healing. Her life’s work is helping others find their own healing by learning how to create balance in their lives and their bodies.
Her passion for healing naturally extended to her creating a healing protocol for family and eventually her father, who in 2015 was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic melanoma to his lungs, stomach, lymph and adrenal glands. He overcame this devastating diagnosis by following an Ayurvedic and cannabis oil regime, and recently received his “no metastatic masses” radiology report by his oncologist at Emory Medical.
Joanna is a NAMA recognized Board-Certified Ayurveda Wellness Counselor from the Kerala Ayurveda Academy, and is a certified Cannabis Clinician through The Medical Cannabis Institute, and through Dr. Sulak’s Healer programs. Memberships include American Herbalists Guild, GreenMed Research, Yoga Alliance, Project CBD, and the Society of Cannabis Clinicians. She is also a faculty member for the Holistic Cannabis Academy and a NAMA Pace Provider
Joanna lives in the pacific NW with her husband and business partner, Erik Tandberg, photographer and doctor of physics, specializing in metrology and optics. He serves as President of ZV BOTANICALS, and closely monitors all testing and measurement analysis.
Along with running ZV BOTANICALS, Jo teaches Ayurvedic and Yoga wellness classes and retreats, offers cannabis and ayurvedic counseling, and creates powerful herbal remedies.
