Herbal Medicine Clinic Overview
While I encourage self care for minor ailments, chronic illness is best managed while under the care of a health professional. Dis-ease in the body is the result of many complex factors. If you are seeking the information most relevant to your health picture then have an assessment and health program designed for your personal needs; if you are using prescription medicine then it is imperative that you do not self treat.
Herbs are like people, complex in nature. When deciding which herbs are the most appropriate to use, consult a practitioner familiar with the unique personalities of the plants. Much healing can occur through simply sharing one’s story with one who may invite a new perspective and provide tools to better deal with the situation at hand. Clinic consultations help to keep one moving forward through the cyclical nature of the healing process and to provide positive reinforcement, keeping you focused and moving in the direction required to meet your health goals.
Consultations are available by appointment, with offices in Vancouver and Port Moody, BC.
Phone and online consultations are offered for individuals within North America. Payments for consultations by phone and online secure telehealth platforms are made by credit card or prepaid by etransfer – and fees are due at the time of the consultation.
