What to expect during a consultation and what bodily ails can herbs help support?
During a consultation we will do an overview of your health history, system by system, and together decide which conditions to address initially based on urgency and personal choice. Example: say an individual has an autoimmune condition, poor sleep, and anxiousness, we might first begin with choosing herbal preparations and lifestyle habits that support getting a good nights rest before we dive into the other issues. We will work to support the body by bringing systems back into balance using herbal preparations and minor lifestyle/dietary adjustments.
There are many herbs that can be of support to our modern day health disruption and conditions. Some examples include cardiovascular health, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, trans health and hormone therapy, diabetes, immune support, anxiety, depression, female/male reproductive health, digestion, endocrine disruptions, anemia, panic attacks, drug addiction, skeletal muscle injuries, and acute ails such as sore throats, allergies, colds and flus, nausea, or soft tissue injuries.
There are hundreds of herbs and various medicinal preparations, together we can work to find the remedies that best fit an individual’s constitution. This is the beauty and the benefit of herbal medicine, that each formula can be customized and tailored to each individual’s constitution.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
