Modern medicine has come a long way when it comes to now having cures and groundbreaking diagnosis strategies for different ailments. However, what appears to lack is a thorough understanding as to why the body is reacting the way it is, and how an issue arose in the first place. In Herbalism and especially Ayurveda, educators believe that the core of one's health starts in the gut, and when one part of the body is out of balance, so is another. Our bodies are one whole working system, homeostasis. So, when we struggle with "x", it's mostly due because of "y" and it's throwing off "z". The goal is to start with "a", which is preventive care but if we already feel like we are at the end of the line, we can still get ourselves back to the beginning where we can continue on a path of healthy vibrant living.
More than ever the world needs health coaches, practitioners, and educators. I strongly believe that when we have a relationship with our coaches and practitioners, only then are we going to be able to have a better relationship with our bodies and then be able to have the proper conversations with our primary care physicians.
