So what does an herbalist do anyway? Why do I need one?
Herbalists in the United States do not diagnose, treat or prevent disease. Believe it or not, herbalists do not need to diagnose - they work with you to address your unique symptoms with holistic strategies and herbs that suit your constitution. It is individualized care.
Also, medicinal plants are not for diseases or conditions – they are for people.
Your body is complex, and it has the innate ability to heal itself (contrary to the belief in mainstream medicine, your body is not working against you but for you).
Herbalism is a science and ancient practice about choosing the right medicinal plants for the individual for short-term and long-term intervention, proper dosage, alongside holistic strategies to arrive at optimal health. Note: lifestyle modifications are essential alongside herbal interventions.
Did you know herbal medicine, alongside lifestyle changes, has been effective for:
Harm reduction strategies in the fight against addiction
Stress, anxiety, and panic attacks
Urinary tract and yeast infections
Replace instances of antibiotic use
Weight loss and targeted diet plans
Acne, rashes, and other skin irritations
Cold and flu
And more, etc.
Herbalists can be guides, work with you and your physicians, and educate you on your health options.
