Herbs for the Structural System (Free Preview)
- Categorized in: Professional Herbalist Training Program
People get injured all the time and modern medicine does wonders with treating trauma. They can set the broken bones, stitch up the lacerations and even do reconstructive surgery. What they can't do is cause the tissues to actually heal. That's something the body has to do, but it has to have the materials it needs to do it. That's where natural healing can help. By the appropriate application of herbs and nutrients we can speed the healing process in injuries, while easing pain and preventing or minimizing scarring.
In this free introduction to Module Eight of our Advanced Herbal Training program, Herbs for the Structural System, Steven Horne and Thomas Easley will discuss herbs, nutrients and other natural approaches to speeding the healing of tissues after injuries. There will also be a brief introduction about how emotional trauma can contribute to physical pain and how we can help that process as well.
