Herbal medicine is simultaneously art and science. The practitioner becomes a lifelong student of the body, mind, and spirit. There is an intangible something in the plant that resonates with the intangible something in the person. Combine this with what the generations of oral histories, classical texts and modern research say the plant is useful for. This is where art and science meet. Herbalists and plant workers since the dawn of humanity have observed that characteristics such as the color, shape and part of a plant is helpful in knowing what system in the body it corresponds to or has an affinity and resonance with.
Working with plants on this level provides much contextual information that is useful when crafting a formula for someone. With proper diagnosis and method + clear intention a qualified practitioner can help you identify plant medicines that will shift not only your relationship to chronic pain and illness, but to the wonders of the natural word as well.
