Across the county and world, health systems are being stretched thin due to the CV 19 pandemic. While western systems and forms of medicine reach their limits, some are turning to different forms of medicine. In San Miguel County, several practitioners are using integrative medicine to serve the community and support the work of the medical center. Joshua Geetter is a licensed acupuncturist and a clinical and production herbalist. He focuses primarily on Chinese medicine.
“What’s most prescient and efficacious for us right now, especially with ‘shelter in place’ and social distancing would be the herbal medicine, which happens to be the standard of care in the ancient Chinese medicine for epidemiology” says Geetter.
