WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE HERBALISM?
You may have heard of holistic health referred to as "alternative medicine" but maybe aren't sure what it means. Herbalism is the study/ practical use of herbs to treat ailments. It is also known as phytotherapy. An herbalist is one who practices herbalism. At In Day's Care LLC we practice integrative herbalism. In short, I study my clients and fully assess their energetic fields to create an herbal plan that helps to create balance of the mind, body, and spirit. I integrate spiritual wellness into my herbalism practice by selecting herbs, plants, and floral that have a physical healing profile as well as a corresponding astrological/spiritual healing profile to match my clients concerns/issues.
EMBRACING A HOLISTIC LIFESTYLE
I am not new to this, I'm true to this! I've had a love of plants all of my life and have been a student of nature for as long as I could remember. If I had to date when I actively began incorporating herbs into my lifestyle, it was back in 2009. As a broke college student, you get creative. I didn't realize it then, but this was the first lifestyle overhaul and the first step, as an adult, to choosing a more holistic lifestyle. I began relying a lot more on Grandma's home remedies and exploring more pocket- friendly, all natural solutions. After years of practice, I began seeking some certification/licensing to legitimize it all (to others). And here we are almost 3 years later. The learning is never done, I am an eternal student. I'll never be satisfied with my knowledge of herbs. And that's why you need to book your session and get started on your wellness journey. If you are interested in the use of herbs, plants, and floral to address issues, minor to severe, you should seek out a licensed or certified herbalist. During our initial consultation, I will asses your issue & lifestyle practices, to get a better understanding and to uncover the root cause. After your consultation and physical assessment (can be done virtually!), we will create a specific plan of action that directly target your issues. I will also choose the best application, be it a tincture, infused oil or tea, ointment, salve or cream. I do not offer a quick fix, healing of the mind, body, and spirit takes time! Herbalism works and will support an overall healthier and holistic lifestyle.
