What is clinical herbalism?

Humans from every culture have been in relationship with medicinal herbs for thousands of years. Clinical herbalism is the practice of using plant medicine, nutritional counsel, and lifestyle suggestions to support our inherent capacity for healing on every level - physical, emotional, and spiritual. Plant medicine, in many instances, works slower than taking a pill, however the changes that occur are deep and sustained.
