- How does your first consultation work? What do you do?
My first Holistic Health Consultation is a 90-minute-conversation with you. I ask many questions regarding various aspects of your daily life, including issues that may at first seem irrelevant. I observe you carefully (any unnatural skin coloration, wrinkles, tone of voice, and more). I encourage you to speak as much as possible while I listen and take notes. The more you share the easier my job is. I start with any symptoms you may be experiencing and go deeper and deeper until I discover everything I need to know. My goal is to grasp the root cause of your issues so that I can apply the proper approach (herbs, aromatherapy, energy-body-work, nutrition, food supplementation, etc.). At the end of the first session, we set goals together and plan how to achieve them. After the first consultation, you receive an Individually Tailored Wellness Plan, designed to help you achieve those goals.
- Do you work with cancer patients?
I work with all patients, and though people fighting cancer can benefit from my guidance, I am not a “medical” doctor, and therefore cannot suggest therapies that heal cancer. I help you rebalance your life force energy (chi) that may not be flowing properly, and which could also be the cause of your problem.
I work with diet, reiki, supplementation, aromatherapy, and herbs to stimulate your body’s natural self-healing power. So although I am not a substitute for chemotherapy and other conventional medicine and cancer treatments, I can help patients who are dealing with cancer to face and benefit from the traditional process better.
- Who is your typical client?
I treat all different types of people from various backgrounds and professions. Some of my clients say they just feel “a little off” and are looking for a simple “tune up”. Anybody is potentially a good candidate who can benefit from my guidance and consultations. If you have specific issues you prefer to address with natural remedies, look no further. I can help. Some of my clients say they’ve tried everything and are desperate because nothing has worked. Others want help in maintaining their optimal health or seek a guide on their personal path toward self-discovery and healing.
- How long before I see results?
Results depend on the severity of your problem (i.e. mild or chronic) and on your compliance and commitment. Timing also depends on which approach you prefer: herbs tend to be “slower” than medicinal drugs, but they give solid and durable results when chosen and administered properly. Herbs work on the root causes of your issues, not simply on symptoms. Addressing a problem’s root cause means changing your mindset and habits, which is a process that requires time and patience. Sometimes, when the body reacts to the therapy, symptoms can even worsen before they begin to improve.
- Can I integrate herbs with my prescription drugs?
Herbs are powerful. Yes, integrating herbs with medicinal products is fine, but you need the guide of an expert. I have studied and experimented with herbs for decades in order to hone my skills and confidence in knowing which herbs to use and when, in what dosages, and also the best ways to take them. Teaming up with your medical doctor is always a good strategy when medical therapy is in place.
- Is alternative medicine safe?
Yes, as long as you work with a professional. As already mentioned, herbs (and also essential oils) are powerful, which means you need to be guided in their use. Proper nutrition requires proper coaching. You need the knowledge of a professional in order to avoid making mistakes. To achieve the best results, you should have an expert by your side. So again, yes, alternative medicine is safe, especially when you work with an experienced holistic health practitioner.
