Taking Raw Herbs: Earth First by Thea Elijah

When a client doesn't want to take a raw formula that I've prescribed for them because it tastes too bad--and they either can't get it down or it comes back up again--my first thought is that it's my problem, not their problem, and that I gave them the wrong formula. I actually think that this is a very practical default position on client "resistance" to a treatment intervention, because 99% of the time that's exactly what it is--and I become a much better (and humbler) practitioner by approaching the situation with this bias. We think we know exactly what the client needs, but if we are willing to listen, we may find out something different.
