Why Plant Medicine
Plant medicine has provided the foundation of medicine all over the world since before language was written. Even today 74% of pharmaceutical medicine is derived from plants and 18% is developed from fungi. When used in conscientious manner, plant medicine is sustainable, supports the environment, is economical and good for the human body and mind. When practice is a holistic manner, there are rarely side effects with the use of plant medicine.
While plant medicine can be used to treat symptoms, it also has the ability to deeply penetrate the body and mind to renew our experience of wellness: balance, optimism, energy, compassion.
