Frequently Asked Questions About Herbs

How do you choose foundational support?
  • – Look at the whole person, not the symptoms. Herbs are not a band-aid, they are meant to bring balance and restoration to the body systems.
  • – Look for what herb will support and bring balance to the body system that needs help
  • – Nutrition should always come first. When we address the root cause of clients’ diets, symptoms will go away and the body comes back to balance. Then, if extra support is needed, go to herbs.
  • – The 5 flavors of herbs:
    • – Bitter (stimulating digestion)
    • – Sour (stimulating liver/gallbladder)
    • – Sweet (nourishing)
    • – Pungent (anti-microbial)
    • – Salty (mineral-rich)
How do I learn more about herbs and incorporate them into my practice?
  • – Read great books! Ex: Herbal Medicine from the Heart of the Earth
  • – Seek out a herbalist course/class either online or in your area
What is the difference between herbal medicine/contemporary medicine?
  • – Medicine has a more simple structure meant for one purpose, herbs have thousands of usages
  • – Herbs bring the body back to balance and help the body heal itself rather than fixing a symptom
