Herbal traditions are a complementary part to our modern medicine model. While physicians are trained to treat all varieties of disease, the medical system cannot always allow them to investigate and research a patient's complaints. With a typical visit lasting only ten minutes and little time allowed for follow up, most physicians are limited to treating symptoms. For many conditions, this is a spectacular solution. Physicians can treat infections, mend broken bones, resolve allergic reactions, treat cancer, and provide advice on how to have a successful pregnancy, grow through puberty, raise healthy kids, and much more. For some, this isn't enough. The impact of our diet (!), our lifestyle choices, and our increasingly toxic world are leading us to find that we just don't feel healthy anymore. Herbalists are great complements to your existing medical care. An herbalist will sit with you for however long is necessary to evaluate your diet, your activity level, your general wellness, and the things in your life that are affecting your health. Making changes to all of these areas will have positive benefits to your overall health. An herbalist can also teach you about how certain plants and foods can support those changes and make the benefits stronger. An herbalist is not a substitute for your doctor, but a key partner in your healthcare decisions. Herbalists want to share knowledge with you so you can take responsibility for making yourself the healthiest you can be.
