One of the most important aspects of Healing process is learning how to eat properly. This is where many of her patients struggle the most. People are usually used to or stuck with certain type of diet mostly because of their cultural background. The reputation of typical American food for being high in fat, sugar and protein are well acknowledged by majority of people. And we all knows they are associated with obesity, heart diseases and other various illnesses. Yet many people are still reluctant to change their diets even after they become ill. People usually underestimate the impact of the food it has on their health. This is why a patients is usually provided with Suggested Diet (Bland Diet) sheet which offers a guideline to follow and the basic understanding of how the daily diet affect individual's health as well as a specific list of foods (you can eat or you should avoid).
A patient will also learn about importance of regular exercise, how to cope with stress as well as simple traditional healing techniques. Negative effects of prescription drugs will be discussed if necessary. Most importantly a patient will learn that taking herbs is a secondary in the process of healing. It is simply a aid, though it is very powerful, to the body's nature to heal itself. With an effort, on the part of the patient, to learn his responsibility, the herbalist could simply focus on bringing the balance back to his body by eliminating toxins and strengthening the certain area of the body. It is not easy to change the lifestyle or eating habits, however; it is critical if you want to receive maximum benefits from herbs.
