“The physician treats, but nature heals.”
My name is Yumei Silva and I am a Aromatherapy and Herbal Practitioner. Besides working for my own practice, I serve at The Veterans Resiliency Holistic Clinic: http://www.veteransresiliency.com.
In the practice, I utilize both essential oils and herbs. They are nature’s gifts to mankind.
Essential oils achieve excellent results when addressing emotional issues, in skin care, muscle and nerve damages, respiratory issues, infectious diseases, including Candida Albicans, reproductive concerns (PMS, Menopause) and urinary tract infection.
Herbs on the other hand are better suited for internal ingestion long term to achieve optimal results. Herbs can be used for both acute and chronic illnesses.
As a skilled practitioner, I look at the client as a person, not various parts. Identify the root cause is the key. Once the root cause is eliminated, the symptoms associated with it will naturally disappear.
Depending on the client’s health issues and constitution, I may focus on the essential oils or herbs or both to achieve best possible outcome for the client.
I work with individuals to help them discover their unique path to better health. Neither essential oils nor herbs are wonder cures. They are part of the holistic and wholesome approach to a healthy and happy life.
Food as medicine, medicine as food. It all starts with what a client puts in his/her body.
