Carolyn Barron Garcia is a writer, herbalist, and Physician of East Asian Medicine who merges mythology & medicine to bring the mysteries of the body alive for her patients. She practices holistic primary care medicine guided by the poetry of nature, using the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water to explore nature’s intelligence as it manifests within you. Her work is for those who long to end the corporate co-optation of the body, know and embrace their unique inner ecosystem, and re-wild medicine for function, flow, and full aliveness.
After a lifetime of worshiping at the altar of plants, she applied their ethos of authenticity, adaptability, resilience, and renewal to a healthcare model built on ecological principles. She named her practice Botanarchy, because she believes that medicine is a pathway to liberation, a form of resistance and reclamation that supports the full flowering of your potential.
Her online world is a repository of wisdom traditions for connecting to the elements and the sacred wild within & throughout. Her practice resides within Botanarchy Herbs + Acupuncture in Hollywood, CA.
