Herbalism is a form of plant based medicine practiced by mankind dating back to the very beginning of our existence. Only until recently have we placed a greater focus in pharmaceuticals and their chemicals constituents.
The 21st century has seen a remarkable dichotomy of health and healthcare with its incredible medical advancement in technology and science. It is even more remarkable that Western civilization is suffering from countless chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiac illness.
Where Western medicine fails, Western herbalism prevails!
Holistic medicine, especially herbalism, places a focus on re-balancing the body and its systems. There is no ‘quick fix’ and no ‘heroic action’ is taken. Generally the treatment is slower acting, but it is always longer lasting.
I am an herbalist and holistic nutritionist living in the Southwest USA.
