Wellness Consultations: What to Expect
Initial Visit: Full consultations last approximately ninety minutes, allowing for a personal, in-depth conversation about your health concerns and history, interspersed with non-invasive diagnostics and advice. You will receive an audio recording of the session (available through Google Drive).
Post-Visit: Chris devotes necessary time after the consultation to research and to protocol development, in order to ensure the best and most comprehensive course of action for the client. It includes a written Wellness Report that summarizes the in-person meeting and offers advice in areas of lifestyle, nutrition and herbs. It also includes designing one or more customized herbal preparations that address your needs.
Herbal Remedies: Herbal remedies are personally prepared for the client and can address constitutional, chronic and/or acute health concerns. With a stock of over three hundred medicinal herbs from around the world in convenient-to-take, liquid form (alcohol-based tinctures), Chris can blend customized formulas for virtually any health issue. Remedies may also include tea blends, oils, flower essences and/or powders. Herbs are organically cultivated, conscientiously gathered, or procured from the highest quality sources, ensuring optimum purity, strength and freshness. Alcohol is derived from organic, non-GMO cane.
Follow Up Visits: Many clients are on a longer health journey and may benefit from future visits. Follow-up visits gauge your health progress and determine possible next steps. Adjustments to the health protocol and changes in herbal remedies are made at that time. Follow-up visits are generally shorter than first-time consultations and can often be held over the phone or via e-mail.
Philosophy: At the core of the holistic health paradigm is the understanding that the human body is an innately intelligent, self-correcting organism; that is, we are all exquisitely designed to maintain, balance and heal ourselves. As an herbalist, I educate and treat people, not conditions, helping to facilitate the body’s natural healing process with the use of herbs and the wisdom of ancient and modern healing systems.
