    ISSUES RELATING TO HERBSAND HUMAN WELLNESS

    HEALING THE WHOLE BODY VERSUS DISEASETwo major paradigms have been battling in the West for thelast hundred years or more. The pharmaceutical and medicalindustries, attempting to maintain economic control of whathas turned into one of the largest and most powerfuleconomic forces on the planet, try to turn everything into abattle of science against a specific disease. Their modelimplies that highly trained soldiers in that war applyhigh-tech weapons to destroy the disease.

    The traditional medical models such as Native American,Chinese, Mayan, Ayurvedic, African Shamanic and WesternEuropean herbalism have a dramatically different viewpoint.These models, while in some cases having differing viewpointson the cause and cure of diseases, tend, nevertheless, to viewthe person as a holistic complex individual and as part of awider community, culture and natural environment. Thesemodels tend to relate the powers of nature to the imbalanceexperienced by the individual to find a way to treat the wholeperson rather than just the symptoms. This is known asholistic medicine.

    Today as science confronts the vast miscalculations it hasmade in the unintended consequences of their extreme andimbalanced application of isolated cures against isolateddiseases (things like drug-resistant antibiotics, massive longterm side effects to drug therapies and the resurgence ofdiseases that were thought to be virtually exterminated, aswell as the development of new diseases due to imbalancescreated in the life and environment, etc.) and the fact thatpatients who utilize holistic techniques such as stressreduction, energy medicines (such as biomagnetics andacupuncture), yoga, herbalism, lifestyle and diet adjustmentstend to have better and healthier lives and treatmentoutcomes, there is a greater recognition of the fact thattreating the whole person is in fact a more effective paradigmfor health and well-being.
