We know you have a choice about where to purchase your supplements. We appreciate your interest in choosing a qualified healthcare professional for your wellness needs.

Why Choose Us?

Knowledge

There are many ways to practice herbalism. Single herbs or supplements can be used for broad symptoms. Ginkgo for memory, St. John’s Wort for depression, turmeric for inflammation, chondroitin or glucosamine for arthritis, etc.

While these supplements may help your symptoms, they may not provide a solution for what caused the symptoms in the first place. Meaning, you need to take them as long as your symptoms persist.

We use TCM theory to provide a specific diagnosis, and recommend a custom plant-based herbal formula and food recommendations to target the cause of your condition. We identify patterns of imbalance, and we use food and herbs to resolve them.

Our formulas are composed of 5-15 different ingredients artfully combined to safely treat your diagnosis.  As your condition improves, the formulas and/or dose will change accordingly.  With coaching and lifestyle changes, you may be able to stop taking supplements, depending on the diagnosis.

Experience

There is no better teacher than experience. Over 16 years of patient interaction in medical offices, non-profit clinics, spas, hospitals, and holistic offices informs our practice.

We have the knowledge and experience to have seen what works, what doesn't, and to know when it is best to refer to another provider.

Safety

Just because something is natural, doesn’t mean it is safe. Qualified practitioners are aware of herb-drug interactions, proper dosage, and safe administration of supplements. 

Our herbs are sourced from suppliers that participate in voluntary, independent testing for safety and purity, and require purchase from a licensed healthcare professional. They are also committed to protect endangered and protected plant and animal species.

We source suppliers that guarantee products are free from adulterants, additives, and fillers.  

Efficacy

Many widely available supplements do not have an effective dose recommendation on the label. This insures their safety, but also means they may not work, and are potentially a waste of money.

By scanning the therapeutic ingredients in supplements found at health food stores to compare dose of active ingredients, we have discovered you would have to take as many as 20 pills per dose at 2 doses per day to get the same therapeutic benefit!

Our supplements cannot be purchased over-the-counter, because they contain higher amounts of effective ingredients.  Save time and money, by getting supplements from a qualified professional herbalist.
