The Herbalist's role
Enlisting an herbalist on your journey
Since Herbalists are not licensed in this country we do not diagnose or treat disease. As an herbalist, we partner with you to educate, encourage and support your goals for optimal health and balance in your life. Please take time to educate yourself about any treatment plans you decide to adopt and the health concerns you are addressing.
If you have any questions about my training and credentials please ask. If at any time during the consultation I feel that your needs and desires are beyond the scope of my training, I may refer you to another practitioner or, with your consent, consult with a colleague concerning your case. I support your right to consult with a practitioner of your choice, especially in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, I am happy to work with any of your health care professionals. It is my goal to empower you as you journey towards better health.
Every person is unique in their make-up and needs. Therefore, I will be looking for patterns of balance or imbalance for you as an individual and from there I will recommend the most appropriate herbal, dietary and lifestyle changes specifically for you and your health goals. As an herbalist, I believe that the human body is resilient and innately self-healing, and that the correct herbal formulas and lifestyle changes can assist and encourage the body in its effort to return to balance.
My goal as your consulting herbalist is to educate you on the best way to enhance your body’s innate healing capacity. Healing may take time, in many cases it depends on how big the imbalance is in your health. Ultimately, it is your choice whether or not to make these changes.
