This week on the Daily Beat: We chat with clinical herbalist and nutritionist, Sarah Josey, on the integration and shift towards alternative medicine.

Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday January 21, 2015: Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in people suffering  chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and mental illness. Functional medicine attempts to solve that by orienting focus on the mechanisms at hand, not just acute care.

Sarah Josey began her journey as a healer by studying biochemistry at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. Part way through the program she felt a need to find a healing method that was closer to the rhythms of nature; one that worked with a person’s body and the wisdom innate in us all. Shortly thereafter she began attending the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, CO; now called the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. She graduated two years later as a certified Clinical Herbalist and Clinical Nutritionist.

Sarah is owner of the Golden Poppy Apothecary. She opened her store with the intention of increasing awareness of the power of herbs for health and be a resource for the community. Sarah will share her knowledge of the use of herbs, tinctures and essential oils for health.
