Before the recent development of pharmaceutical medicine, people around the world relied primarily or exclusively on plants to treat illness and promote longevity. Many different traditions developed and continue to play a role in healthcare today. We will focus on Chinese medicine and naturopathic botanical therapy. You will learn about several herbs you can start using safely right away.

Closely related to botanical medicine, actually a subspecialty in this field, is the use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes. We use these extracts externally or for inhalation to relieve physical and mental-emotional symptoms. With the right knowledge and precautions, some of these oils can even be used during pregnancy and postpartum.

Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician active more than 200 years ago, laid the foundation for homeopathy, a widely practiced healthcare system in Europe and South Asia. Homeopathic medicines are highly diluted and stimulate the body’s self-healing forces energetically. While well-chosen homeopathics can be very effective, they are also generally quite safe and can become part of your self-care once you begin to familiarize yourself with important remedies.

What a mouthful! But this therapy uses the ear, not the mouth. Auricular therapy is one of the microsystems in Chinese (and European) acupuncture. We will look at the ear’s auricle to learn how the dozens of recognized points relate to the body’s internal organs and systems. We will use seeds instead of needles to stimulate some of these points helpful for stress and pain relief.
