Much of Lawrence’s interest in holistic healthcare stemmed from his own experience battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 21. While exploring the roots of ‘disease’ and of ‘wellness’, he came to personally understand the metaphors at play in human health, and the role of personal responsibility in addressing all forms of disease, including cancer. After experimenting on himself using herbal medicine and other holistic modalities alongside traditional chemotherapy, Lawrence discovered the powerful ways that each of these medical traditions can play a role in treating human illness. This experience forms the basis of his approach to treating patients in the clinical setting.
Lawrence is the founder and president of My Herbalist Herbal Formulas, a comprehensive line of products for adults and children that treat the most common health conditions. (To learn more visit www.MyHerbalist.com.)
