Liberating from the Crutch of Quick Answers As Herbalists




In this blog post I want to relay the importance of reevaluating a commonly used term within the herbalist community. It may come as a surprise, but I believe a shift towards the application of knowledge and the embrace of inquisitive learning is necessary. By focusing on these aspects, herbalists can experience an enhanced practice that fosters personal growth and a deeper understanding of herbal medicine.




The Misconception of "Quick Answers":


You know how it is—we often want someone to tell us exactly what to do, which herbs to use, and give us instant remedies. I get it, time is precious, and we want efficiency. But here's the thing: relying solely on others limits our potential. It prevents us from exploring and discovering on our own.




The Power of "Why" and "How":


To truly excel as herbalists, we need to dig deeper. It's not just about knowing what works; it's about understanding why and how it works. When we grasp the underlying principles and mechanisms of herbal medicine, we gain the power to find answers independently. Imagine the confidence and adaptability that comes with that level of understanding!







Embracing the Application of Knowledge:



Here's where the excitement begins. Instead of constantly seeking pre-packaged solutions, let's roll up our sleeves and conduct personal experiments. Believe me, nothing compares to firsthand experience. Through our own trials, we can witness the effects of different herbs, combinations, and formulations. It's no longer just theoretical knowledge; it becomes practical wisdom we can apply to our craft.





Encouraging Inquisitive Learning:


Let's break free from the mold and become inquisitive learners. Question everything, explore new ideas, and challenge the status quo. Our curiosity can drive us to push the boundaries of traditional practices and discover innovative approaches. By doing so, we not only grow individually but also contribute to the collective knowledge of our beloved field.






As herbalists, we have the potential to be pioneers in our craft. By shifting our focus from quick answers to the application of knowledge, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. So, let's take ownership of our learning, dive into experimentation, and embrace the joy of finding answers through our own endeavors. Together, we can create a community that thrives on curiosity, exploration, and the endless possibilities of herbal medicine.

Thank you so much, you are so right in many ways. I just purchased the book and I'm looking forward to learning more indepth about the intricacies of the herbs given to us by the creator. It's so important to thoroughly comprehend the dynamics of the practice, and I'm learning that each day. This video encourages me to push my self harder to really understand more, and check back with elder knowledge that is very important. Please continue to do these video, they are greatly appreciated!!! I'll have a testimony one of these days sharing my journey.
