Custom Formulations

If you have complex health issues or have had little success with OTC natural products, consider trying a custom formula. Each of us is unique, and what works for one person’s symptoms may be ineffective for someone else. Consider this: Of all migraine sufferers I have supported, none have had the same formula, and all are nearly or fully symptom free! Only two have had feverfew (the migraine herb) in their formula.

Why is this the case? There are hundreds, maybe thousands of herbs that are vasodilators, analgesics, hormonal modulators, etc. Each of them also has approximately 25-250 other actions in our bodies. Some are warming, others are cooling; some are moistening, others are drying. Finding the right choices for each of us is the artful, intuitive and scientific balancing act that clinical herbalists perform. Plus, there are generally allergens, hormonal or stress components that needs to be addressed to be truly effective. The same is true for all pathologies.

To get started, you must first download the 2 forms located in the About menu. Fill them out and return by fax, e-mail or snail mail.

Sometimes a short phone consult is advised, after reading the forms. If you schedule a clinical visit, this allows for a richer experience. Together we can explore and discover patterns and associations that may be at the root of the symptoms. One on one visits provide an opportunity for the educational component that is key to achieving a positive outcome. And a very healing moment often occurs when we get to share our story and have someone listen attentively, without judgment, to our journey.

So many options, so many layers, so many opportunities for healing…
