As an herbalist and nutritionist, I work with clients with the aim to restore their vitality, giving the body the power to self-heal. The healing practice will focus on identifying the root cause of underlying symptoms or health conditions to work toward recovery or a better state of health. Combing the practice of life style changes (proper nutrition to address the health issue and perhaps exercise), yoga to address mind, body and spiritual elements of healing, and reiki where appropriate to help the body along its healing path. These healing practices can help the body to regain its vitality to achieve a state of good health.
Consultations will involve an in-depth health history assessment to gather important information to understand potential root cause(s) of ailments and general health status. Evaluating the client's diet, nutritional status, supplements /medications, digestion and elimination, sleep patterns and current medical conditions, are all essential to assure the proper health plan or treatment. The client will also be consulted on the best forms of treatment that would be most comfortable incorporating into their protocol.
