Herbal Medicine

Here in Arizona we have a wide range of access to some pretty incredible plants that truly are medicine. Certain single herb or herb combinations are clinically shown to improve with energy, memory, digestive complaints, pain, allergies, sleep, hormone balance, heavy bleeding, migraine headaches, and more. Herbal medicine can come in many forms- encapsulated, tablets, powder, liquid tincture, teas, and topical. Some herbs are fast acting, others take time to build up in the system. Not all herbs taste terrible, by the way, some are quite delicious!

If you’re someone who likes to support their body to heal itself, herbs can be an incredible way to do this. Please keep in mind, not all are safe for long term use, or safe for pregnancy/lactation, or safe in combination with certain medications. The doctors at Inclusive will know best to ensure absolute safety and efficacy of your herbal medical treatment.
