Do you have a health issue (or many) that you would like to
work on using a natural / herbal approach?
Or do you just want to strengthen your immune system and your entire
body with a simple approach to natural medicine?
Would you like to be free of chronic pain, anxiety and stress?
How would it feel to improve your digestion, strengthen your
immune system and improve your health in general?
What does an herbal
consultation consist of?
Herbalism is a holistic practice. You are a whole person in whom each system in your body works together to allow your body to
function. As a clinical herbalist, I’m
looking to determine how to balance all of these systems.
Prior to our meeting, I ask that you fill out a detailed
questionnaire so that we both have an idea of what we will be discussing. As we discuss your health issues, together we will come up
with a personalized protocol which may consist of dietary and lifestyle shifts with the addition of herbs. Included in your
initial visit you will receive a personalized herbal formula. A follow-up visit 3-4 weeks after the initial consult is generally recommended. Many clients come monthly for appointments so
we can continue to tweak their protocol as their body changes.
What type of health issues
can herbal medicine work on?
Hmmm, with what kind of health issue can it not work? What I generally see in my practice are
stress & anxiety, sleep issues, pain, menstrual and menopause concerns,
respiratory conditions, digestive disorders, circulatory problems, wound care and
Can I take herbs when
on pharmaceutical medication?
Yes, in most cases.
Herbs may be safely used alongside pharmaceuticals when they are
appropriate and do not negatively affect the medication. When need be, I’m happy to speak with your
medical professional concerning the herbs that I’d like to see you use.
Can an herbalist
diagnose a problem and are you covered by insurance?
No, an herbalist cannot diagnose a health problem and is not
covered under insurance. However, they
are a part of your health care team.
Herbalists cannot diagnose or cure conditions in the US but we can help
guide you to a healthier lifestyle with herbal medicine, nutritional advice and
other tools, such as Bemer technology.
