Etiquette of Harvesting

“The Eastern Philosophy embraces an energy model which views the body as a whole, including the invisible energy body which is simply a network of energy fields and systems that receive and transmit information on various levels of frequency.  The energy system is like a network of transformers, relaying information from outside our body to the inside of our body.  Part of this energy system is the meridian system, which then transmits this information to organs and glands.” “Herbs bring balance to the meridians as easily as acupuncture or food.”  “Consuming the herbal remedies supports the physical body.  Exploring the emotion related to the herb supports the energy body. Listening to the healing message from the herb offers support for the spiritual connection.”  Author, Evelyn Mulders: “Western Herbs for Eastern Meridians and Five Element Theory”
