STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING
The human body has the innate power to heal itself. Without this power to self-heal, even the most advanced medications and surgical procedures would ultimately fail. The role of the herbalist in this healing process is to consider the client as a whole person and to consult with the client concerning changes in lifestyle, diet, and supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins to foster an increased state of balance and health, thus maximizing the body's self-healing capabilities.
I practice nutrition related assessment, diagnosis, and therapeutic methods based on the healing system. This scope of practice includes dietary assessment, dietary changes, physical diagnosis related to nutrition (including pulse, palpation, tongue, and observation) interpretation of laboratory values relating to nutrition, dietary counseling, reviewing medical records, recommending diet therapies, recommending nutritional supplements when indicated, and identifying proper treatment strategies.
My approach is to combine numerous alternative healing methods together with the latest scientific findings and clinical practices. Nutrition and herbs are my primary specialty and represent my area of expertise. The degree of incorporation of these systems will vary from case to case. The basic principle is to help the body’s natural capacity to restore balance, health, and harmony. Assessments are focused on identifying patterns and imbalances. Depending on the patient’s wishes, recommendations may incorporate nutrition, herbs, supplements, counseling and /or coaching, exercises and lifestyle. Recommendations may be use to instill physical, emotional, mental, and/or spiritual balance.
I am NOT a Medical Doctor nor do I practice western medical assessment, diagnosis, or treatment. I do not claim to cure disease. Nor do I give advice about pharmaceuticals and medications at any time. I have no objections to my clients being seen or evaluated by their own medical doctor. If you have any questions or concerns about your condition, I highly recommend you discuss it with your physician. I am willing to work as part of a health care team including physicians and other health care providers. If you would like me to work with your physician, please inform you physician also of this wish. I also recommend you inquire and explore any recommendations I provide with any professionals in health care.
Further, I have herbal/nutritional apothecary in the shop & at home. I sell many herbal products and some food products for a profit. I dispense them here as a convenience and to ensure patients are receiving the specific, individualized herbal formula they need. I also use them to create customized herbal formulas to fit the exact profile for what I feel clients need. Clients are not obligated to buy any products here. I encourage clients to buy any supplements wherever it is most convenient for them. The recommended nutritional/herbal supplements are not a replacement for the medications prescribed by your Medical Doctor.
