Medicinal Herbal Remedies

Our herbal therapy combines knowledge from Ayurveda, Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine and Western herbalism. The 3 ancient Eastern traditions utilize individual constitutional analysis, and formulate medicinal herbal remedies accordingly. Western herbalism concentrates on treating specific symptoms with the appropriate chemical constituents and actions found in various herbs. We combine the 2 approaches for a more effective herbal therapy strategy.

Ayurveda and Tibetan medicine share a common structure based on an individual’s energetic pattern tendencies. In Ayurveda, these are called the 3 doshas. In Tibetan medicine, they are called the 3 nyepas. Both traditions formulate medicinal herbal remedies dependent upon the individual’s birth or genetic constitutional tendencies, and the current dysfunctional tendency that is causing problems. Chinese medicine approaches constitution analysis with the 5 element theory, and Yin and Yang duality. Again, the therapy is based upon the underlying energetic patterns that are responsible for the both the constitution and imbalances. A good medicinal herbal remedy will decrease the unwanted patterns, while strengthening or building the normal functioning of the  genetic constitution. Western herbalism adds the benefit of focusing on a very specific desired action related to symptom relief, while again building the person’s inherit strengths.

Guys, energetics matter. What we see in TCM and other ancient healing traditions is the constant return to energetic patterns. We need to know is it cold, hot, damp, dry, stuck, too much, too little, in the wrong place, superficial, deep. Why? Because knowing the Western diagnosis or condition is not enough for effective treatment. That condition manifests itself uniquely in different individuals depending on their natural constitutions, predispositions, lifestyles, co-existing problems, etc… Remember, these are things that are not usually addressed and included in treatment plans in Western allopathic medicine, and in the one size fits all paradigm of treatment.

Some people who get a cold, flu, and even COVID-19 will have Cold-Damp presentations, others Hot-Damp, Hot-Dry and the list goes on. Therefore it stands that treating them with the same herbs is not logical, and is not going to be effective for everyone (although for a period of time in a crisis pandemic situation like what happened in China, it may be all that can be done). We need to know how to formulate in a balanced way that guides the energetics in the direction we desire to get maximum results.

Don’t get me wrong - there are fantastic contributions and stores of knowledge in medical herbalism. For example, it is very useful to know that a herb holds certain efficacy in treating certain strains of bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc…. BUT, what if testing isn’t available? What if one must wait for test results? Does this mean that we delay treatment? NO! We do what the Chinese have been doing for centuries. We treat the energetic patterns that we see, which has been a very effective way of practicing traditional medicines for thousands of years. We don’t wait to differentiate between the common cold and COVID-19 if symptoms present - we treat. We already have the knowledge to do that, and many Western herbalists are adapting traditional structures like TCM into their ways of working and formulas. Basic energetics are at the core of these traditions, however complex their theories get.
