Life in all its splendor is Mother Nature obeyed - Westin A. Price
Ancient wisdom holds that food should always be our first medicine. However, modern dietary advice is often confusing and contradictory! Knowing what foods work best for us can be very challenging.
I offer holistic nutritional counseling to help people bring nutritionally rich foods into their lives. Whether the issue is food intolerance, weight loss or life-style issues, I help people take the steps they need toward healthy change.
The supplements I use are primarily food based or "super foods". I also recommend a minimal amount of vitamin therapy. For this I prescribe Pure Encapsulations, a company known for its integrity and high standards of manufacturing.
There are herbs for every illness - Abbe Kneipp
Chinese Herbal Medicine has been in existence for over 2000 years. Plant and some animal substances are combined synergistically in formulas. Many common formulas used today are over 1000 years old. Part of what makes this medicine so profound is its ability to treat a symptom and its underlying cause simultaneously. In other words, it works on both the root and the branch.
Herbal formulas are available now in tablet form, making compliance very easy! All of us can be helped by herbal therapy at some point in our lives. I routinely prescribe herbs for colds, sinus infections, allergies, arthritis, anxiety, menopause, and menstrual complaints.
All the herbal formulas I use are grown and processed by American companies.
In addition to Chinese Herbs, I also use Bush Flower Remedies. These are Australian flower tinctures, similar to the Bach Flower Remedies, that work vibrationally for emotional healing.
