Carolyn Barron is more than a healer practicing Chinese Medicine here in LA...Her website says this and it doesn't even begin to encapsulate her work:
CHINESE MEDICAL POETICS + HOLISTIC PRIMARY CARE ☯ EMBRACING THE CYCLES OF NATURE TO WORK IN SYNC WITH THE UNIVERSAL FLOW
We get into ALL OF IT. Carolyn has been working on me for the past few months and to be frank, mostly during a moment of crisis. Her full body/soul/psyche resets have been truly life changing.

Botanarchy’s model of Radical Feminist Healthcare is oriented towards freeing us from a reliance upon medicines + institutions that are exploitive of natural resources and the body en masse. The rich, expansive palate of nature, Taoism, and Traditional Chinese Medicine provide a path that engenders a true state of bodily autonomy, reacquainting us with the rhythms and cycles of our bodies and liberating us from a dependence on healthcare practices that undermine its intelligence and flow.
Botanarchy as a concept hearkens to the idea that medicine can be both a form of resistance and a reclamation of original, authentic nature. Botanarchy offers a vision of radical feminist healthcare that is built on humanism, integrity, and respect for the flow of the natural world. Botanarchists are committed to ending the corporate co-option of the body, supporting the democratization of medicine, and empowering others to think and feel for themselves.
Every gender expression benefits from radical feminist health care. We are all suffering from being underserved in a for-profit, disease-driven model that has taken power and autonomy out of the hands of the people and put it into the hands of corporations and politicians. As shepherds of this radical feminist healthcare, we aim to rescue medicine from the patriarchy by means of the following core principles:
*Radical feminist healthcare is rooted in natural models that do not suppress the true nature of the body, enhancing connection to both the microcosm of the body and the macrocosm of the earth.
*Radical feminist healthcare is based on thousands of years of observing and revering nature, not heterosexual cis white male bodies.
*Radical feminist healthcare is tethered to natural rhythms and embraces the cycles of change.
*Radical feminist healthcare honors both light and shadow, recognizing each phase of the creative cycle as medicine — birth, growth, harvest, death, and renewal.
*Radical feminist healthcare is not based on an unattainable goal of ‘healing’, valuing the full spectrum of human experience instead.
*Radical feminist healthcare is age-positive, committed to providing compassionate healthcare for all stages of personhood, exulting the menstrual cycle and menopause equally as sacred passages.
*Radical feminist healthcare refuses to industrialize the rhythms and cycles of the body.
*Radical feminist healthcare will never measure health by our ability to work harder, work longer, make more money, increase our sexual potency, feel better with less sleep, compete with each other, push beyond our means and capacity.
*Radical feminist healthcare is against positing ‘wellness’ as maximizing our output in a capitalist labor market by increasing motivation and productivity.
*Radical feminist healthcare allows every body to define ‘wellness’ on their own terms.
