What is Clinical Herbalism?
At its essence, herbalism is a holistic approach to health and wellness. It is the art and science of assessing an individual client's constitution and their current physical, mental and energetic condition, and then selecting the appropriate herbal protocols and foods in order to gently correct any imbalances they may be experiencing by enhancing their body's natural ability to heal itself and maintain homeostasis. At Oneness Wellness, we have been trained as clinical herbalists to identify the client’s specific health needs using various traditional and modern assessment techniques, and then to create and recommend herbal formulas and provide suggestions around diet and lifestyle modifications that are tailored to the individual client’s unique circumstances.
Although herbalists are not licensed medical professionals, herbalism is a form of traditional and complementary health care that has been practiced for centuries in the United States and the world over. In its 2019 Global Report on Traditional and Complementary Medicine, the World Health Organization (WHO) noted that traditional and complementary medicines like herbalism are important and often underestimated resources for prevention and management of lifestyle related chronic diseases. In its report, WHO also observed that more and more countries are recognizing the role of traditional and complementary medicine in their national health systems and developing policies to integrate them therein.
