Western Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine has been one of the primary healing modalities used by healers since the beginning of time. Building upon this long history of traditional use, modern scientific studies have now validated and helped us understand the biochemistry and mechanisms that make many herbs effective if used properly.
Herbs and your health
Our practitioners match the right herbal formulas to your current health needs, taking into account your whole “picture” including compatibility with current medications, your individual health context, other aspects of your constitution, time of life, and lifestyle and even seasonal considerations.
The many uses of herbs
Herbs can be used for short-term therapy to treat a pressing health problem such as infection or pain, or used over a longer period of time to help repair compromised tissue, reduce inflammation, support digestion, improve sleep, rebalance hormones and help your body adapt to stress.
Herbs come in different forms including capsules, powders, tinctures, teas and topical preparations. They can even be cooked into your food! The power of herbs comes from their ability to broadly and deeply support your body in returning to full health, working with root causes rather than merely addressing symptoms and typically incurring fewer side effects than medications.
