Why Herbalism?

Herbs strengthen the inherent ability of the body to heal itself, often by encouraging flow within the body. Herbs are not a replacement for pharmaceuticals–they neither suppress nor merely soothe symptoms. Instead, herbs gently remind the body how to resume proper function, eventually without herbal supplementation.

In her herbal practice, Lise seeks to address the health of the whole person, rather than targeting a specific disease. She understands that the body normally restores itself to balance, but can occasionally become stuck. Lise works from a paradigm that leads her to search out the points at which the body’s flow has become impaired, giving rise to a variety of symptoms.
