Herbalism and Food as Medicine
Herbal medicines origins can be traced back to ancient cultures such as India, American Indian and Chinese. It involves the medicinal use of plants to treat disease and enhance general health and wellbeing. Herbal therapies in the form of teas, tinctures, capsules, salves, and other edible plants, fruits and vegetables can provide us with a holistic way to address health issues and improve our day-to-day wellness.
During the initial consultations we sit one-on-one and discuss your health history, your present concerns, and your goals for whole health. We will also discuss your current diet, your physical, emotional, and energetic characteristics to develop an herbal and/or food recommendation specific to you and your intention. Within 1 day you will receive an email or even text message with these recommendations, vegan food list and recipes. If you choose, you may order your custom herbal formula from White Lotus Spiritual Healing, at a separate charge.
During the follow up consultation we discuss your experience with the herbal or foods recommendations. At this time we may decide to modify your formula, dosage or food plan and we will coach you through the next step. I recommended that clients follow up at least once within a month of the initial appointment. Most clients will need to stay on an herbal formula for 3-6 months depending on the nature of the imbalance and how chronic the pattern is. Time and patience is important as we want to help your body heal once you’re off the herbal remedies so you can thrive and allow the body to do what it naturally does.
