What I do is help people heal themselves using mainly herbs. My main therapeutic approach is herbs. Also I work in a holistic manner, meaning that I will look at all the different aspects of health promotion in one's life - it will be nutritional, stress management, those are very wide-ranging, but a lot of lifestyle issues are also taken into account to promote the body's capacity to heal. The premise that I work with is that, in and of itself, the body is capable of healing. What we need to do is provide circumstances in which it can do that and sometimes provide extra help for it to be able to find its balance better, or to initiate a certain movement toward something or other, depending on where the issues are.
