Herbal Tele-Consults

These 20 – 30 minute consults are meant for information gathering. Following the session, I write and assemble a customized herbal formula for you and ship it by the following day. These formulas are made the highest quality granules – precooked herbs that have been concentrated and powdered. When mixed with boiling water, they form a strong tea that’s nearly identical to the potent, tried-and-true method of decocting raw herbs. As such, they aren’t always tasty, but they work! 

I do not bill insurance companies, but you may qualify for reimbursement by insurance, depending on your coverage. 

Cost: $175. Please contact us about a discount if you are experiencing financial hardship. In addition to the price of the consultation, patients are responsible for the cost of the herbs which is typically about $25 a week, plus postage. 

What are you struggling with? 

  • Concerns about your immune system and the looming threat of infection?
  • Mental/emotional challenges such as anxiety, depression, irritability, or difficulty focusing?
  • Digestive problems such as bloating, acid reflux, nausea, or bowel irregularity?
  • Reproductive issues such as PMS, endometriosis, low libido, or infertility?
  • Pain in your muscles and joints, headaches or migraines?
  • Fatigue, insomnia, or autoimmune conditions?

Whether physical or psychological, our health challenges infringe on our quality of life. They consume our time, attention, and energy. They get in the way of our being our best selves. When these issues no longer dominate our lives, we’re free to do our best work, to focus on what we love, to enjoy life, to feel peaceful, and to just be. 

Botanical medicine may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Every plant is a sophisticated pharmacy capable of initiating positive change to the body-mind. 

The herbal supplement industry can be confusing. Herbs are touted as instant cures and they’re available in every grocery store. Consumers are told that using them effectively is as simple as reading the indications on a bottle and taking a pill. Often the results are disappointing, and you may even conclude that herbs just don’t work.

What’s missing is the perspective of a doctor trained in botanical medicine who can make an accurate diagnosis, and who doesn’t prescribe single herbs but creates comprehensive herbal formulas. 

That’s what I do. 

I develop a unique formula of about 12 herbs for every patient, customized to your overall health picture.

  • These plants work together synergistically to address both the underlying imbalance and the presenting symptoms.
  • A mix of traditional indications and modern scientific findings results in a final product that is often just as effective as a comparable pharmaceutical drug but without the negative side effects.
  • Furthermore, we have the potential to do something completely outside the scope of drug therapy: to make lasting corrections and to boost one’s core vitality.

 

About Traditional Chinese Medicine 

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been instrumental in China’s response to COVID-19. Two of the greatest works of this medical system are guidebooks on the treatment of epidemic disease. 85% of COVID patients in China receive herbs. In one study of 102 patients, those receiving both Chinese herbs and Western medicine had a 33% higher recovery rate than those only receiving Western treatments. Chinese hospitals have established herbal protocols both for prevention and treatment of every stage of the virus, and I’m following and modifying these guidelines for my patients.
