I just received news that my health mentor, Tim Morrow passed away ten days ago on December 20. For yall who don’t know him, Tim Morrow was a master herbalist and iridologist for more than 30 years. He was the founder of Common Sense Herbs, and helped thousands of people heal from their diseases naturally. And he taught even more people how to eat for optimal health; especially black folks. I am one of them.
I started my health journey around December 2015 after I became vegetarian. Along the way, I discovered Tim Morrow and his teachings and immediately started following him. I listened to all the YouTube videos of his lectures, interviews and TV shows on health; and began taking some of his herbal products. I also became a distributor for his products and had the privilege of chatting with him over the phone a few times.
Tim’s insight on health and herbal nutrition was amazing. He put me on game about many different things in regards to the human body and how it functions and taught me how to use herbs to heal myself. Back then, I had a bad case of IBS and would be backed up for weeks. Tim gave me the best advice I ever received. “If you eat three meals a day, you should have 3 bowel movements a day. If not, your colon is backed up.”
That one piece of advice right there, as simple as it may sound, changed my entire outlook on health. Ever since then, I’ve been eating healthy (for the most part) and defecating regularly. But whenever I go through a short phase of what I call emotional eating, and I feel and start to feel bloated, I just order one of his herbal colon cleanses and I’m back to normal in no time.
But though Tim’s products and advice has helped so many people around the world better their health, there were many folks out there who hated on him and claimed that he was a fraud. The most famous of these cases, came from a Mexican lady who blamed Tim for the death of her 13 year old son a few years ago. Because of this false claim, Tim was convicted of practicing medicine without a license and sentenced to four months in jail earlier this year.
Personally, I think him going to jail this year had something to do with him passing. I say that because before Tim went to jail, he announced his retirement from the company. Then after Tim got out, he dies a few months later. This situation reminded me of what happened to Dr. Sebi back in 2016, where he mysteriously died after going to jail on trumped on charges. I don’t like to speculate, but we all know how the government has a track record for murdering black men who teach us live contrary to the system. So I wonder if this what happened to Tim.
But regardless of how he died, what I do know is that Tim lived his life for truth. Those who know him or spoke to him, know that he was a real as they come. He held no chasers and his advice was solid as a rock. The proof of this can be seen at the hundreds of testimonials on his company’s Facebook page, of how his herbs and advice transformed their lives. And that right there speaks volumes over what the media had to say about him.
Now that Tim has passed, I just wanted to salute him with this article as a token of my appreciation. So, Thank you Tim, for all the wisdom you gave me and others about health. And may your spirit continue to enlighten us from the realm of the ancestors. Ase!
PAYING HOMAGE: In honor of Tim, I ask that you support his company. So anyone seeking to purchase any herbs or cleanses for the new year, please do so at CommonSenseHerbs.com.

I would like to connect with you on certain topics like health and perception and leadership; because I’m a leader who wants to learn more in order to teach more and would like to take on partners in this journey as well.
Peace and blessings

Shoot me an email.
This is a fact here that Mexican has a track record of milking anyone and anything for money. Did I believe her story h… no. This is the type of thing that black men have been enduring. I have been going to Tim for years and never once has he ever said nor implied that I should take herbs instead of doctor prescribed medication.
Mo’Reese, thank you for this Blog! I’ve been restless and bothered by the news of his passing, and have not been able to learn how he died. I’ve asked “Mr.” Google who knows everything, and he had nothing! It’s like time stood still after they put him in jail.
Mr. Morrow changed my life. I will be eternally grateful. I believe he will be resurrected, so Rest-in-Christ Mr. Morrow…
Good Read.. i followed Tim morrows work for a few years back in 2013. Wise brother with good information!!

RIP Tim Morrow

My heart is so broken….I knew he would die shortly after or even in jail…what he went through during his trial and jail was traumatic for his spirit & body…I truly hope he was surrounded by his loved ones…may he rest in peace and his legacy live on.

So sad to here of my Master Herbalist passing yesterday.. I went through his training on Herbalist/ Iridology . Rest easy because I know you’re in heaven ????!!
Coulsander Johnson says
MY MASTER HERBALIST TRANSITION IS A SHOCK TO ME BUT, I KNOW HE’S IN HEAVEN . YOU WAS THE BEST TRAINER!!! I WENT THROUGH HIS HERBALIST/ IRIDOLOGY CERTIFICATION !!!!
I’m shocked. I met Tim Morrows in Philadelphia, PA. He did an iridologist lecture. I was very impressed. I learned lots and was not bored
I have used his products. I just saw a scholarship in his honor in my email. So bc I’m preparing to enter Naturopathic college in the fall, I read it. Didn’t know of his transitioning. I am so saddened. He was so filled with life, its scary how the mic seems to be targeting ppl like him.

Tim’s daughter in Kansas City, Kansas. His first born. I’m 64 found out on his birthday March 10 that he was dead. Cartelia Locke is my name. I was told that they couldn’t find my phone #. But i was a member and a sales person who didn’t sell. I say something isn’t right. I didn’t even get to say good bye to my loving Daddy.

Thanks for this article, I have been following him for many years and I’ve always appreciated his candor and real solutions to health problems. he was on my mind recently, and I decided to go to his YouTube, and there I found the memorial video which put me in a state of shock. His teachings were impeccable and profound and will forever remain in my heart.

I am shook. I really wanted to speak to him again. Just 1 more time…
Tim meant well & I’m sure he helped lots of people. I went to him 3-4 times, bought his herb pills & he did the Iridology exam on my eyes. I had a prostate problem & he advised me NOT to go to the Dr. Instead he told me told me to massage the area between the rectum & prostate & sold me more herb pills. Well, I believe in 2nd & 3rd opinions. So I went to another licensed Alternative Medicine Dr. who had cured thousands in his 30-40 year practice.
(I was trying to avoid an operation- Western Medicine Dr’s said I needed TURP surgery) This Dr. told me from day one that I might have to get the surgery, but he would do the best that he could to help avoid it. I made some progress with him, via Chinese Herbs & acupuncture, however, he was right-I had to get the surgery (too much tissue in prostate).
I kept taking the Chinese Herbs until 2 weeks b4 surgery. Here’s the good news, I had ZERO pain post surgery, and all my research, as well as Dr’s all said after this type surgery, I would have pain. Alternative & Chinese Medicine does work, I’ve been into it 15-20 years now, however, sometimes ya need Western Medicine too. Not the prescriptions so much, but the procedures, surgeries, etc. After my surgery, I got Chinese Herbs to rid my body of any bad, bacteria, infection etc. Haven’t had a prostate problem since then (2014)
