Carolyn Barron is a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and nutritionist, and the owner of Botanarchy Herbs & Acupuncture in Los Angeles, CA. She went down this path because for-profit industrialized medicine made her feel hopeless and disenfranchised, and she longed for the tools to take care of herself and her community when the system failed to protect and sustain them. Growing up a writer entrenched in the feminist movement, she has always been fervently motivated to shift the paradigms & politics of women’s bodies, and bridge the chasm between body and spirit by re-acquainting women with the magic of their biology. She believes medicine is a dynamic force that is ever-evolving, and is comfortable fusing her western clinical experience with diverse fields of natural medicine to provide holistic primary care to her community. As an acupuncturist at the Venice Family Clinic Integrative Medicine Chronic Pain Program, a clinical intern at Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, and as the manager of a functional medicine practice specializing in chronic disease, she has spent the last 11 years in a clinical setting, supporting patients and their families through nutrition, needles, and natural medicines. Enshrined in her temple of saps, twigs, roots and resins, the gristle of her life has been teaching herself and others how to master the arcane as a vehicle for self-healing and self-reliance. Committed to destroying the institutionalized lies our culture propagates about food, wellness, consciousness and the body, she teaches her patients self-governance through ritual and DIY medicine, as tools of healing, self-care, body mastery, and eradication of externally-imposed dogma.
