STATEMENT OF INTENT:
I practice traditional herbalism, not allopathic medicine. I ask my clients to exercise their health freedoms responsibly, and to agree that you understand that I am not an allopathic medical practitioner. I also ask that clients use herbs as directed. Herbs work best when integrated with all other habits which support health and healing. Such directives may include diet changes, getting needed rest (particularly for children), avoiding toxic environments, avoiding improper combinations of pharmaceutical drugs with food and herbs, and seeking adjunct and necessary therapies and practices for optimal health. Herbs and herbal formulas and products are discussed on this web site solely within the context of the field of traditional herbal arts and sciences, and not within the context of allopathic medical practice.
While I do not dispense health consultations over the phone, you may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any specific needs you may have for herbal and natural therapies. It is probable that what you need can be custom made; in fact, much of the private practice work requires custom formulas.
On rare occasions an item will be discontinued or will be temporarily out of stock and I will not know until after the sale. In this rare instance I will immediately refund the total amount paid or recommend an alternative.
