You might ask, "Why?" Because:

From my 27 years of treating clients, I have still found these to be the best and most effective when it comes to foundational options in supporting the body’s healing powers, and restoring and rejuvenating organ/tissue function.

  • There is nothing more effective for healing than medicines to be as close to nature as possible.
  • Liquid is still one of the fastest and most effective forms to help the body to heal.
  • There is nothing more effective to treat your health concerns than individually formulated medicines because the underlying cause of each person's illness is different.
  • Last but not least: It is then possible to treat the other related systems as well. This is beneficial in two aspects--being cost-effective as well as health-effective.

Let me tell you a true story.

A few years ago, one of my client’s wives had a triple bypass, then ended up back in the hospital with a golden staph infection. She had been very ill, so her chances of surviving were not so great. My client phoned me, asking if I could treat her. I said that he would have to notify the hospital to get their permission and I would be happy to do so. All was accepted and I attended the hospital. The client was in intensive care and had been put into an induced coma to help with her recovery. On speaking with the doctors and nurses, it seemed that if the golden staph wasn't going to kill her, they felt sure that the strong medications that they had to put her on would. It was also mentioned that she had small holes in her sternum and they were looking at investigative surgery in six days to maybe look at reconstructive surgery some weeks down the track.

For the next six days...

I prepared an herbal formula to help heal the golden staph, and prepared herbs to help support detoxification from the heavy duty medication and to support function of these organs and tissue. This formula was put in the correct dosage through the naso-gastric tube. I then prepared a homeopathic formula that was still able to be administered under the clients tongue. Daily massages including essential oils of patchouli, lavender, Echinacea, and Arnica were given.

After the six days on investigation they were able to do the reconstructive surgery. The head doctor of intensive care sat down with me and said "If it wasn't for you, the lady wouldn't have lived." I responded, "If it wasn't for you and your machines, she also wouldn't have lived."

This for me was the true meaning of medicine and working together.

Yet, as a Naturopathic Practitioner, you are still alienated from the medical profession as such, and also by many in your own profession. This is due to a lack of understanding the true miracle of healing and working together for the best outcome.

Over my 27 years of treating my clients, the evidence comes from them.

We work together as a team in bringing about health changes, a better quality of health, and ultimately a better quality of life.

In regaining and maintaining health there are no "magic bullets" - It's about time, commitment, and working toward the best outcome in becoming well.

I am speaking to you from my experiences in treating clients for 27 years as a Naturopathic Practitioner. I am adamant to my clients about the fact that the journey in becoming well is within them.

I merely share with them the tools and strategies; the nutritional, lifestyle, and medicinal support that I have found instrumental in supporting this process.
