The Mission of The Forager’s Path
The primary role of our school and clinic is to educate and empower people so they can use herbs as part of a broader approach to a healthier lifestyle.
This is done in two ways: herbal consultations and group settings during classes and workshops.
The Purpose of Herbal Consultations
An herbal consultation is helpful when a focused, private setting is needed to gain a better understanding of a specific health issue, on a personal level.
A consultation is like a private class; the topic is determined by you, connected to a personal health issue.
In past consultations, I have worked with people on digestion, sleep, headaches, blood sugar imbalances, lingering coughs, boosting immunity, PMS, hot flashes, low energy and several other health issues.
The consultation involves a time set aside for the client and herbalist to look at what the imbalance is, what causes it and ways to use herbs, diet and lifestyle to return to a healthier, more balanced state.
Some people come to a consultation seeking relief from a specific pain or discomfort. Others come for more detailed information regarding health from the Ayurvedic or Traditional Chinese Medicine perspectives. Depending on one’s health issues, consultations can address either or both of these approaches.
What is Involved
The consultation process has been updated in response to the current virus situation.
There is no face-to-face contact.
Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will reply shortly with a series of questions for you to answer via email.
Your replies give me important information about your specific case and what you would like to accomplish during the consult.
Also included are general questions that provide me with more details about your health history, sleep, diet and stress levels.
Once this is done, send it to me via email.
You will be contacted shortly to arrange a Zoom meeting on the internet.
The initial meeting is approximately 90 minutes in length, although this is not a specific time limit.
The goal is to leave the consult with specific ideas on changes that can be made to improve health.
This usually, but not always, involves recommendations for herbs or supplements in addition to lifestyle and dietary changes.
A consultation is not a substitute for medical care as I am not a doctor.
See a doctor if you have a serious or specific disease.
There are neither claims nor guarantees made regarding cures, diagnosis, prevention or treatments.
Quick and easy fixes are neither promised nor should they be expected.
The effectiveness of a consult is determined by the depth and quality of communication between you and I as the client and herbalist and your willingness to make changes in your life.
While herbal therapies have been helpful to many people, herbs alone are limited in how much they can accomplish. To achieve truly deep and long lasting benefits, you must take an honest look at the cause of the imbalance and be willing to make the necessary changes in either diet or lifestyle.
My role as an herbalist is to provide both the information and support to make those changes.
In consideration of the current health situation facing our local and global communities, the fee for the initial consultation has been reduced to $85. This includes one follow up consult via Zoom or phone during the two weeks immediately following the initial consult.
