In the West, herbal medicine often falls into “if this than that” type of equations. We often get caught up in the idea of bio-chemical medicine, where we start thinking of the body like an algebra equation. For example, we think if we’re deficient in iron, we need to take iron… right?
But, does your body really function like an algebra equation?
Shouldn’t your body be able to create every vital compound essential for it’s health and healing–that is–if every organ system is properly functioning?
Is your body not capable of healing every problem, so long as it has all the tools to do so?
Instead of “plunging up the leak” with a supplement or some other chemical, perhaps we should consider a new approach to natural health and healing? Maybe it’s time to discover and balance the root cause of the issue, whether it be some sort of stagnation, deficiency, or both!
