This is going to be a fun series of video messages! I love chatting about the herbs and all of their ways of working in the body. BUT what I don’t talk much about is HOW to take these herbs. What that looks like for me on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. And how YOU can take your herbs like an Herbalist too.
It gets a bit sticky here my plant loving friends. I have to say out loud. This is not medical advice. I am not a licensed medical physician. BUT, I am plant loving, herbalist who wants to be healthy via nature. I am in no way suggesting what you put in your body. Just providing information as to HOW I nourish my nature made body with nature’s BEST nutrients.
With that out of the way, let’s dive in…
Most of the how is in the video. But I want to say that lifestyle and daily ingestion of these plants is huge. It is incredibly important to understand that these phytochemicals are NOT as intense as the pharmaceuticals you may or may not be ingesting on a regular basis. Lifestyle is how to get the most out of your herbs. When I work with clients one on one, the best shifts that happen occur when the WHOLE body is taken into account. That being Physical, Spiritual and Mental.
When we take the holistic approach… though I don’t love that word, we are able to address lots of issues that conventional techniques can’t seem to touch. Many people search out an herbalist when they find themselves at the end of their rope with the conventional ways. I know that was a big push for me too!
16 years deep into my practice with herbalism has me where I am now. I am a healthy 35 year old. My flexibility, skin, digestive system and inner organs all speak for the years that I have lived and breathed herbs & nature made medicine.
It is a classic Herbalist Musings to Experiment on my own body first, has been a beacon to many. Which is so wonderful to know! The goal with these videos is to give you a peek into the ways the herbs work for me, my family and plant friends!
ALWAYS run any new supplements, herbal and the like, by your primary care physician before implementing anything new. Though I strive to not work with many herbs that hold contraindications with pharmaceuticals, you MAY be on drugs that I am unaware of. So please. Know this is a serious statement. Understand that herbs COMPLIMENT a healthy lifestyle and regular health regimen that is set by your doctor.
