You have the power to control your own life, you just need to take it.
Choosing the path of natural medicine is not always the easiest one.
There are horrible tasting herbs you need to take, and changes you might need to make in your life you don’t really want to. It is also usually a long process. To truly heal your body there are no quick fixes.
But if you are ready to take your power back, than this is for you.
My passion is herbal medicine and yoga, but nutrition and massage are an important part of therapy, as are lifestyle changes. These combined create a powerful healing environment, allowing you to get back into balance.
Herbs are chosen to facilitate uptake and elimination (detox) processes, and to enhance the functioning of the tissues. They are chosen to suit your body type and temperament.
Our western diet is often not the best for our body and mind.
All bodies are different, and working your way through all the different diets and recommendations is not always easy.
I will help you work out which foods will work best for your body at this moment.
Yoga techniques, breathing exercises and meditation / mindfulness exercises are used to help in the overall flow of energy through the body, which will enhance the working of the herbs and the changes in the diet.
Sometimes additional treatments and therapies can be useful to help with the overall treatment. Ear acupuncture, flower remedies, massage and lymphatic drainage are additional services, but sometimes can be part of the whole treatment, and will then be incorporated in the consultation.
A combination of yoga techniques and herbal medicine, together with some dietary recommendations will help you find your balance back in your life.
Together we work out a way to bring you back to balance and health.
