Toning and Nurturing Health in Elders

© David L. Hoffmann BSc (Hons), MNIMH

A basic premise of this course is that phytotherapy can nurture health and not simply treat illness. This strength of this approach lies in the use of tonics and gentle effect or remedies, using the stronger effectors only where absolutely necessary. This is also the basis for herbal treatment for elders, thus everything covered in the course so far has relevance to the treatment of the individual concerned. Perhaps the most outstanding contribution that herbs can make to the health care of our elders is through system tonics. Tonics and gentle normalizer remedies not only avoid most side effect complications but offer possibilities for the maintenance of wellness and prevention of many problems associated with aging.

Please review the material covering wellness and prevention discussed in the last lesson.
