The Elements of Care® Program

  • Rooted in ancient Hermeticism, EOC is a Gentle Medicine philosophy of Five Elements that is universal and foundational to all healing traditions. Hermetic philosophy suits every creed and health belief and clashes with none.

  • The five elements make up all creation including the Self with a capital "S". The elements are fire, air, water, earth, and ether, which was known as “pneuma” or essence by the ancient Greeks. 

  • We incorporate the five elements in a Self-care plan that addresses the energetic patterns unique to the person and their relationship to the environment in which they live and serve humanity.

  • The EOC program is a precision Self-care education rather than a biomedical treatment system. 

  • Plants are not “prescribed” in the EOC system. Participants are trained to recognize their own health patterns and make informed choices about the plant partners and other non-drug solutions rooted in the five elements that are best applied in the care of Self and family.

  • Based on the historical and clinical research and more than 30 years of clinical nursing practice of Dr. Martha Libster and other health scientists, Self-care is complementary to any biomedical treatment. Self-care is foundational to any healthcare system.
