Phytotherapist Tammi O'Flynn spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about the practice of Phytotherapy - or medical herbalism - and how it is used to heal a lot of sicknesses we have today.
According to O'Flynn, phytotherapists, unlike the normal medical doctors, diagnose and treat a broad range of conditions - but only use plant medicine.
We combine the science of modern day with traditional herbal medicine that's been used for thousands of years.— Tammi O'Flynn, Phytotherapist
When someone comes to see me with a headache I don't just give them pain relievers, but we try to find out what could be the cause this headache, maybe it is stress related. We try to get to the bottom of what could be causing the headache.— Tammi O'Flynn, Phytotherapist
