Is designed to use herbs to treat the underlying
causes of disease in a patient. Instead of looking at the signs and symptoms
and then treating the disease, our practitioner will look at the whole picture;
assessing underlying causes.
Once the cause of a condition is discovered, herb(s) can be recommended to
restore the body's natural balance. Herbalism is understanding how different
herbs work with the body to restore balance and health. Herbs have
been used for centuries not only to cure disease, but have been used as a
preventative medicine to boost immune function and promote overall general well-being.
