Open Dialog With A Herbalist: Ask Us Anything You Want
Your health is a serious matter. We herbalists dedicate our lives to understanding medicinal plants and how they affect the body. In today’s age of modern medicine, it can be a struggle to get real answers, guidance, and clarity when it comes to how we feel and why. It can be difficult to even find an educated ear willing to listen.
We are here to offer some clarity and point you in the right direction to do your own research, so if you’ve been dealing with something bothersome and want to know how herbalism might be worth learning more about, then use this as an opportunity to ask that question you’ve been wondering about.
What to know before asking… We are herbalists, not doctors. We can not provide medical advice, nor can we treat or diagnose. If you ask us to diagnose, we will tell you to ask your doctor or a medical professional. If you ask about drug interactions, we will point you to our Herb Warnings page. If you ask for dosing help or how to use one of our products, we may not respond to your question, and ask that you visit our FAQ page first.
There are some questions we will not be able to answer, or dig super deep on. In some cases, we might wish to respond directly by email, otherwise we’ll publish our answers on this blog post over the next few weeks. Please provide as much information as possible, as diet and lifestyle can play huge roles in figuring out what’s wrong. If you feel your question is much to personal, simply email us directly from our Contact page.
For life threatening situations or illnesses that require immediate medical care, we will not help you and must ask you to call your primary care physician, goto your nearest hospital, or call 911 for immediate assistance.
To ask a question, please leave a comment below and we will respond as soon as we can. Be sure to check this blog article often over the next few weeks for answers to your questions. Until then, please visit our store for a complete list of our herbal offerings and formulary, only available at www.WoodlandHerbal.com
*QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:
Question #1: "Hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. Is there a solution? 😆 I would love to get labs so that I have a place to start, but it's soooo confusing."
Answer #1: Other than using herbs to maintain good overall health, there isn't much in the natural world that helps problems with the thyroid gland in a noticeable way. As of right now, the only natural options that help involve secretions from monkey glands, which we do not dabble in. Getting labs is a great place to start so you know where you are, so seeking advice from your doctor or a medical professional is ideal. As mentioned, there are some herbs to support overall wellness, which can help maintain but will not cure, and so you may wish to do your own research. Look into: Ginseng, Eleuthero, Ashwagandha (only if not dealing with another chronic illness, as it can rile up the immune system), Holy Basil, Rhodiola, and Bee Pollen are good places to start your study.
