What is

clinical herbalism?

Herbal medicine is the use of plants to restore and sustain physical, emotional and spiritual health. It is the oldest form of medicine and is still used by traditional cultures all over the world. The term ‘clinical’ refers to the blending of modern knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and phytochemistry with ancient traditional knowledge. In this regard, clinical herbalism is the meeting place of western medical sciences and traditional healing.

Clinical herbalism is a system of healing that supports the individual and recognizes the body’s intuitive ability of self-repair. In the practice of clinical herbalism, specific herbs or blends are aligned to support this innate self-healing intelligence, offering the body support and guidance for optimal health and wellness.
