A Unique Plant Perspective

Plants are a vital part of the healing practices of the peoples of the world.  They are a part of modern bio-medicine and ancient healing traditions.

 

Wise people of many cultures have prophesied that the 21st century would be a time when people would find greater ways to integrate traditions and emerging science.

Our unique plant perspective is rooted in the:

  •  translation of hundreds of clinical trials,

  •  incorporation of biomedical research of plant constituents,

  •  integration of years of historical evidence from healing traditions,

  •  application of holistic botanical healing techniques

  •  and knowledge gained from direct participation in plant-human partnerships.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

 Attributed to St. Francis of Assisi and Reinhold Niebuhr (1892 - 1971)
