Mankind has depended upon plants for all aspects of our life since we first walked this earth. Today, 80% of world cultures still use herbal medicine as their primary medicine. Hippocrates, known as the father of Western medicine, was an herbalist. An appointment with an herbalist involves a comprehensive review of your health history, your lifestyle and dietary choices, and the use of traditional diagnostic techniques including the reading of pulses, the tongue, skin and nails. You can expect compassionate listening, and a protocol that you can manage within your time, lifestyle and budgetary constraints. Recommendations will include specific herbs and therapeutic doses and may be offered as teas, in tinctures or glycerin, in powder form, in tablet or capsule form.
