Synergy Herbal Works FAQ
What is an Herbalist?
One who uses herbs, natural substances, healthy foods, and lifestyle changes to bring the body back into balance and to promote good health by working with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is accomplished though changes in lifestyle, diet, and supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins and minerals.
Can we prescibe medication or diagnose disease?
Herbalists are not doctors, due to the lack of national or state licensing; herbalists may not diagnose, treat or prescribe treatments for illness. If you are looking for someone to do those things for you, then you would need to go to a doctor, osteopath, or other licensed professional for this.
What is an herbal consultation?
Thanks for considering an herbal consultation with me. If you decide to work with me, I will be looking for patterns of imbalance in your constitution and health. Based on these observations, I will make recommendations and educate you in ways to optimize your health. I will be your partner in the journey as you decide whether or not you make changes based on my recommendations. Educate yourself on all your health options (whether conventional or natural) and the concerns you are dealing with. I can lead you to quality information and may be able to direct you to other practitioners that may be able to serve you better if I am not able to meet your needs. If you are already working with other health practitioners, I am eager to partner with them to to achieve your health goals.
What type of clients do I see?
I have had the priviledge to work with acute imbalances such as viral, bacterial, and injury situations, pre and post surgery recovery, chronic disease processes, hormonal imbalance issues, mental health, infertility, and more.
How long does a consultation take?
Initial consultations are normally between 60-90 minutes and follow up visits are 15 minutes or more as needed. Pricing is hourly and is pro-rated accordingly.
How do I make an appointment?
You can call, text, or email me to set up a visit. I'm not always able to answer my phone right away, please leave a message for me to return your call as soon as possible.
