Botanical medicines or herbs have been an integral part of healing since the dawn of time. By drawing on the historical use of herbs and the insight of modern science, botanical medicine provides a safe, non-toxic effective means to restore and maintain your health.
While some herbs benefit specific parts of the body other herbs such as adaptogenic herbs work to balance the whole body. Many herbs offer the rapid benefit people need when acutely ill. Others are best suited for long-term chronic conditions offering nutritive and healing properties without the side effects so common with synthetic medicine.
I use herbs for the cardiovascular system or heart conditions addressing a variety of concerns including blood pressure control and heart irregularities.
Other herbs work well for non-physical complaints such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and attention disorders. The immune system can be strengthened with proper herbal care along with supporting the lymph system and providing anti-viral or anti-microbial support if indicated.
Colds and flu’s respond well to herbal use. My herbal formula "Dr. Dunn’s Vira K-O" is guaranteed to prevent (Knock Out) colds and flu’s if used according to instructions.
I also offer topical herbal formulas which are excellent in healing a variety of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, fungal conditions and acne where detox is an important factor. See the Store Page for my herbal formula "Wild Mountain Healing Lotion" for healing skin ailments.
Digestive health is greatly improved with herbal treatments when symptoms such as IBS and GERD or gastro esophageal reflux disease are problems. Colitis type conditions also respond well to herbal treatments.
I frequently use herbal remedies to address hormone concerns such as PMS and menopause, as well as the fatigue associated with adrenal and thyroid conditions which are so common.
Herbs can also assist with osteoporosis and aging conditions such as dementia and neurologic ailments such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.
Weight management, weight loss, allergy control, bladder and prostate problems are just a few of the other conditions which respond well to the botanical medicines I use in my integrated individualized natural health care programs.
