We take a holistic approach to every situation with each of our clients. This is essential when using herbal supplements or any types of alternative medicine. Each system relates to all other systems of the body. We spend a significant amount of time with each client, reviewing all systems and all history prior to any discussion of recommended herbal supplements. Each client must attend a full initial consultation and complete a full intake analysis form.
The first consultation lasts approximately 1 to 2 hours for $100 Each followup session is approximately 1/2 hour for $35.
Fresh herbal supplements, commonly called "tinctures," are available at $6.00 an ounce, and teas are available for $4.00 an ounce. Call us for a current list of products, or check out our list of some of the local herbs cosmetics, lotions, soaps, syrups, gargles. and more.
Our liquid extracts, or tinctures, are convenient to use and are more concentrated than teas or capsules. Grain alcohol (ethanol) is the solvent used to extract the phytochemicals from the herbs. The alcohol also serves as a preservative to ensure freshness.
Liquid extracts require the use of ethanol for proper extraction and stability of the product. Many medicinal plant constituents are not water-soluble and will not be extracted in standard teas.
Alcohol often releases the widest variety of compounds in an unchanged form. Alcohol tinctures are great for rapid assimilation by the body and their positive effects are often quickly noticed. All of our tinctures are fresh, sterile, and prepared using liquid/liquid chromatography. These tinctures can be take directly or placed in hot water, teas or juices.
