How Does the Herbalist Approach  Healing?

The primary goal of the herbalist is to use herbs and other natural strategies to trigger, support, and accelerate the body’s innate healing mechanisms so that it may heal itself from any illness, whether acute or chronic and regain homeostasis.

To do this, the herbalist must discover the root cause of a person’s imbalance and not merely treat symptoms which will only bring temporary relief. Therefore, the herbalist’s approach to healing is a holistic one in which the entirety of the person — their body, mind, and spirit, their life experiences, and their uniqueness — is considered when designing a treatment protocol.
