Clinical Consultations: Your path to personalized care and custom formulations, made just for you!
What is the nature of my practice?
I view herbal medicine as Complimentary Alternative Medicine, supporting and extending benefit to traditional Allopathic medicine. In some cases herbal medicine can be an alternative to traditional medicine; choose what works best for you!
For herbal medicine to be effective, clients require symptom relief - folks just want to feel better .... now, which is always a consideration in treatment. Symptom improvement helps the keep the client motivated while longer term improvements are accomplished.
Perhaps more importantly, I seek to understand the root cause of your symptoms, then move the body towards health and away from disease. This long-term, holistic approach to health results in REAL life quality improvement.
Your Assessment and Protocol
Your clinical assessment begins with an very extensive interview process. During a traditional Dr.’s appointment, a prescription is often written after a 10 minute discussion (common practice within our medical system). In contrast, your first appointment will likely be 1.5 -2.0 hours.
Dress comfortably, and allow a little extra time if needed. We will explore every relevant aspect of your physical and mental health that you are comfortable discussing. All information is held in strict confidence, without judgement.
Only by fully understanding you and the many factors affecting your health can we develop the best approach.
I ask clients to bring a list of all current medicines, and any lab work they may have access to from the last two years.
Following the appointment, I spend several hours studying your information and developing a customized protocol that address your specific needs and concerns.
About 1 week later will have a follow-up visit (30 minute) to review my detailed recommendations, including herbal medicines, supplements, dietary and lifestyle adjustments that are tailored just for you.
The Healing Earth manufactures your custom formulations from the best available materials. Where possible certified organic, lab tested materials are used. I have developed relationships with quality suppliers, established volume pricing, and have experience maximizing effectiveness and quality of your custom formulations.
As your health improves, we adjust your custom formulations to optimize results for you and your specific evolving needs. As your system and life changes, your medicine should change too. We have the opportunity to adapt to your body's evolving needs.
I offer a significant discount to my clinical clients on the follow-on refills.
After establishing your baseline protocol, we meet quarterly for 1 hour sessions to optimize our approach as your needs change.
Why this approach? Health, wellness and vitality are best achieved by a continuous holistic approach, optimizing your wellness rather than responding to illness and symptoms. By continuously moving towards health and vitality, we can best help you achieve your health goals. Is herbal medicine for me? While most people have experienced and understand our current medical system, many seek complementary or alternative natural medicine approaches through health stores and supplements. A clinical herbalist guides your journey, self-care, and care for those you love. Through experience and results, you will judge the best mix of Allopathic and herbal medicine approaches for you!
