Community Care Night Herbal Consults: What to expect

Herbal medicine is an approach to health and healing that looks at ways to support the entire person, not just treat a disease or symptom. To achieve this, an herbalist typically does a comprehensive intake and provides recommendations that include diet, lifestyle change, supplements and herbal remedies. These combined strategies can support your body’s natural ability to heal.

Herbal consults in a community setting, like the Community Care Nights, are only able to provide a brief review of your health concerns and provide suggestions for the immediate problem. Chronic or more complicated issues will benefit from a more in-depth intake and follow-up. Please talk to the herbalist about what approach is right for you.

Some herbal remedies are available at on-site. Donations are appreciated for any herbal remedies provided.
