Herbal medicine is a holistic discipline and botanical treatment that requires consideration of the many influences on wellness and illness. Plant medicines, with their subtle varied chemistries, are ideal remedies for dynamic and complex problems that can beset our health.
With every patient, Joseph looks at present symptoms and conditions, past medical history, mental and emotional state, family medical history, diet, environmental and lifestyle factors, and often carries out pertinent examinations such as taking blood pressure. Afterwards, he will prescribe herbs in tea, tincture, or another form, and may suggest supplements, exercises, and dietary or lifestyle alterations aimed at improving your condition.
