The Art & Physiology of Healing

Body: Interrupted.

First, we must look at where the normal, healthy physiology was disrupted in order to understand where we must focus the custom tailored herbal medicine formulations. The Central Nervous System (brain and its hormonal relay) coordinates and orchestrates all Endocrine (systemic hormonal) functions through every cell, of every tissue, of every organ system in the body. Basically, this is how we sustain Life, itself.

There is a healthy timing between the Adrenal, Reproductive, Thyroid and Pancreatic hormones and their functions as the hormonal output provides communication back to the brain for feedback and functional response. This central core of function and feedback sustains life, while at-rest and in-response to stimuli within the body and to external conditions (environment, relationships, moods/perceptions, metabolic needs, and many other factors).

In today’s world, there is this misconception of a utopia “in-balance” because true “balance” is the ability to respond and recover efficiently from stressors (essential functions, good stimuli and not-so-good stressors).

Many people feel an inadequacy or pressure to find this elusive concept of balance, when the truth is that balance is achieved when the body can sustain the need to respond to stress, to live life with gusto and sustain proper immune function in a dynamic, changeable, and ever-demanding life.

Balance is: A dynamic and fluid process of efficient, moment-to-moment adaptation to sustain normal function. What you receive with my approach to Herbal Medicine is what the body needs to balance itself. We put the hormonal resource “funds” back into the cellular/tissue “bank”. Disruption of body functions and illness occurs when this timing and coordination of the Neuro-Endocrine-Immune physiology is compromised, and while healthy lifestyle habits are essential to re-establish in recovery, there are times when that simply is not enough to re-set the system. That is precisely what I am here to help you with.

No handfuls of nauseating, questionably-sourced, adulterated & mass-formulated supplement pills. Rather than guesswork by store clerks who know a few buzz-words and seemingly-sensible marketing of gimmicks, how about this: Freshly compounded, organic and biodynamic whole plant medicines, tailored to precisely where your body requires care; Re-formulated as your body recovers and normalizes.
