Healing embraces a clinical strategy based on the principle that Life, Nature, and the Spirit from which they arise are fully present in all the tissues of the body, the psyche, the heart, and the soul.
Master Herbalists employ clinical strategies and methods, which support life force through encouragement of nourishment, digestion, rest, and appropriate activity, identification of purpose, connection with nature, and identification and removal of obstacles to cure on all levels. A Master Herbalist avoids using methods, which suppress or distort life processes and disease, while incorporating all empirical observation, instinct and intuition.
