Humans and plants have mutually co-evolved over millennia and are intimately and inseparably related, from food, through medicine and healing to spirituality. Herbs provide us with a profoundly appropriate and harmonious form of medicine, engaging, involving, and directing energy towards healing and well-being which enhances the vital force in a unique manner. Herbs support the “will” of the vital force.
At the same time, modern scientific research daily validates the foundational principles and practice of Traditional Herbal Medicine, while providing new insights at molecular, cellular and genomic levels. These insights enable ever more refined, targeted and individually tailored therapeutic strategies that are increasing the efficacy, scope, and success of herbal medicine.
Botanical (herbal) medicine is one of the main pillars of Mederi Care®, with botanicals being foundational to Mederi Care protocols. We respect the traditional practice of herbal medicine and believe that ‘the sum of all the parts is greater than any single part’. Therefore, when customizing herbal formulas for an individual, we use a combination of whole herbs, herbal extracts, super concentrated herbal extracts, and herbal isolates.
Herbal medicine represents the ‘soul’ of Mederi Care and is the primary therapeutic modality employed at Mederi Center. Of all our therapeutics, we believe herbs offer the most benefit to longevity and quality of life.
Plant Medicine Podcast with Donnie Yance
To learn more about the use of botanical medicine in Mederi Care®, listen to this podcast in which Mederi Center® Founder and Lead Clinican Donnie Yance talks about plant-based treatments with a focus on cancer management. He explains how botanical medicine can work together with traditional cancer treatments for more effective care, combating issues such as drug resistance and nutritional deficits.
In the podcast, Donnie also talks about how he works with cancer patients and their doctors utilizing the unique, evidence-based integrative approach he developed called Mederi Care® (also known as Eclectic Triphasic Medical System or ETMS). This approach focuses on the health of the patient using plant medicine to strengthen their healing capacity; assessing and altering accordingly the patient's micro environment and how it relates to the disease; and targeting the cancer after identifying its molecular characteristics. Ultimately, our therapeutic goal is to apply a medicinal approach that does the most harm to the unhealthy cells with the least harm to the body's healthy cells.
