In this talk, Dr. Kaleb Lund will introduce the concept of astrological medicine and describe how it has and can be applied in the context of modern herbalism.

In the absence of modern pathophysiology, physicians and healers of the past developed systems of medicine based on the science and spiritual paradigms of their time - for many these included the rational science of astrology.  Similar to Chinese systems which correlate pathology and cure with elements, textures and energies, these physicians correlated pathology and cure with astrological archetypes - especially the planets. This talk will introduce the concept of astrological medicine and describe how it has and can be applied in the context of modern herbalism.
