Herbal Medicine is one of the oldest forms of traditional medicine; it utilises the properties of plants to encourage natural healing on a physical and emotional level. It has a long standing medical philosophy and system upon which its practice is based.
In nature all organisms maintain a process known as homeostasis, or the regulation of the internal environment. When an organism’s internal environment is thrown out of balance by ‘dis-ease’ the processes of homeostasis will work to bring the body back into balance as a wholly functioning individual unit. Herbal Medicine can stimulate this process encouraging the body's natural healing ability.
Katie believes in drawing on the natural abilities of the earth to heal through Herbal Medicine. This encourages a deep healing that enables the individual to reconnect and understand the health of their whole body.
