In the Spirit of the Plants ➳
I perceive the human being as an energetic, holographic system and I believe all presenting ailments stem from vibrational patterns of energy, whether they are physical, spiritual, or emotional in quality. From this lens, the spirit is included in the healing paradigm, also known as "shen" in Chinese Medicine. This electromagnetic existence vibrationally links the spirit, meridians, chakras, and our aura directly to the universal field of energy.
Utilizing plants to heal the mind, body, and spirit is an ancient art and practice dating back thousands of years in many cultures and healthcare systems, such as Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Botanical Medicine, whether in the form of tinctures, flower essences, essential oils, herbal teas, powdered roots, or poultices, effortlessly and brilliantly work to restore vitality and homeostasis on every level of the being. These plant allies, our original medicines, were used by the Eclectics (herbalists), Homeopaths, & Midwives until the early 1930's, when a review was passed by the Flexner Report on medical schools and systems currently practiced in the United States. This report led to the beginning of the current medical care, the American Medical Association (AMA) and deemed most healing arts schools and the healing systems illegal to practice, practically overnight.*
