This is designed to clarify the relationship between the client and practitioner, to help each party know what can be expected of the other and to help avoid misunderstanding and miscommunication. To help clarify what I can and can’t help you with.
I’m not a doctor, nor a licensed medical provider. If you need these services, please do consult with a trained medical professional. If there is a problem, once you know what it is, then you can gather information and make an informed decision on how you want to go about handling the problem. Many people are choosing to work with natural products, some in dietary and nutrition alone, some wish to include energetic adjustments and lifestyle changes. All of these things are using more of a holistic, whole body approach to treating their health concern. There is this wonderful growing interest of individuals that wish to take greater responsibility for their own health care and general well-being. This is what I wish to support.
My work as a Holistic Resource is about empowering people to make wise self-care choices from a place of being well informed. I honor each person’s choice of choosing to embracing holistic health and work to assist that desire to work with alternative methods prior or in conjunction with the offerings of the medical establishment. I am researcher, educator and herbal practitioner. My goal is to educate people who come to me, provide resources, and encourage individuals to embrace responsibility for their own health. To encourage them to ask questions, to understand their own bodies and their own cycles, and to begin to identity what exists around them that might help them meet their goal.
By contacting me, you acknowledge my limitations, and agree to take responsibility for your own health care choices, assuming the risk involved in any of those choices that you make. My goal is to educate you as best as I am able to, please use that information responsibly. Just because it’s a natural or herbal product doesn’t mean it is safe, or without risk. There is also no guarantee that herbal or vitamin supplementation will produce the desired effects. Please make all your health choices educated conscious ones.
