A Discussion about Herbalism, The Original Medicine will feature Fort Collins, CO Herbalist, Nutritionist, and owner of Golden Poppy Herbal Apothecary, Sarah Josey. Sarah will discuss what Herbalism is and how it works. She will also discuss common conditions that she treats with a combination of Herbalism and Nutrition, such as hormonal imbalances, insomnia, autoimmune diseases, and chronic stress. The use of herbs to treat illness and regain health dates back millennia and unfortunately has been lost in mainstream medicine, which tends to rely on pharmaceutical interventions which may have serious side-effects and only treat the symptoms of the illness. It would serve us to look back to the uses of Herbalism so we can move forward in a more holistic and healthy way.
