Our work together is all about understanding the situation and what has brought you to this point in your life. The first consult is an 1 1/2 hour long conversation where you will paint a picture of the entirety of what is going on in your life. We look at diet, sleep, exercise habits, outlook on life, chronic conditions and acute situations that are affecting you, as well as discussing any herbs, vitamins or medications that you are currently taking to prevent any counter indications. Working together over a period of time, we will chronicle your progress. It may take up to a week to plan the herbal course of action because each person is so different. Possible paths may involve herbal teas, tinctures, cell salts, or cleanses.
At the end of the consult, we will schedule a check in appointment 2-3 weeks out to monitor your progress with the herbal course of action. An additional check in will be scheduled 2-4 weeks later.
