As practitioners, we often get caught up with focusing on just the disease that the patient presents with. This can lead to frustrating outcomes when dealing with endocrinopathies like thyroid disorders and diabetes. Instead, we should be looking at a patient globally, where we can see that there is more than meets the eye. What are the perpetuating factors for certain pathologies? How can we use our herbal allies to address these? Sometimes taking a step back to look at more of the pieces of the puzzle is what is needed for these cases to help them thrive once again.
