David Crow and Healing with Plants

davidcrow2David Crow, LAc, is a leader in the field of plant based health care, and the author of Plants That Heal: Essays on Botanical Medicine, and In Search of the Medicine Buddha: A Himalayan Journey. Trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine, he is a master herbalist, aromatherapist and acupuncturist with over 30 years experience as a healer. An expert in the Ayurvedic and Chinese medical systems, Mr. Crow, along with his wife, Sarah, is a founder of Floracopeia, a company devoted to educating and promoting traditional plant-based knowledge.

From his website we read: “During his studies in the Himalayas, Mr. Crow became aware of the widespread ecological destruction taking place in that part of the world, and the loss of medicinal plants on which the ancient medical systems depended. At the same time, he began to understand how medicinal plants were the key to solving numerous interrelated global problems: lack of healthcare, poverty, environmental destruction, and loss of ethnobotanical knowledge. Floracopeia was created as a way to help preserve and promote the use of botanical medicines as solutions to these growing problems.”

Mr. Crow’s has a wide-ranging spiritual approach to healing. He combines essential oils, medicinal plants and mushrooms, as well as meditation and other methods of relaxing to restore health and improve the immune system. He teaches that having the correct “home-grown pharmacy” can help your digestive, respiratory, neurological and musculoskeletal systems, and balance your prana, or chi. He believes that understanding and using the correct plants can enhance one’s spiritual evolution (video) and understanding of the earth.
