Custom Herbal Consultations with Melanie
Throughout history, humans have consistently lived in harmony with the natural world, relying on plants and fungi for their survival. Herbalism is one of the oldest forms of medicine practiced by humans and has been used by different cultures throughout history. Today, botanical medicine is used as the primary source of healthcare in a significant portion of the world population.
Herbalism looks at a person holistically to uncover the root cause rather than provide symptom relief. A holistic approach to healing acknowledges the physical, spiritual, emotional, and cultural aspects of an individual along with the innate healing power of the human body.
I offer one-on-one herbal consultations to deep dive into the topics and symptoms you want to address, as well as health history, personal goals, and any other relevant information. Together, we will connect the symptoms to the root cause so we can create a plan towards your wellness goals.
The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us.....That which we put into the ground she returns to us."

What to expect:
During our consultation, I will guide you through a holistic assessment to gain a better understanding of your wellness goals and health concerns. This process will take into account your diet, lifestyle, past experiences, and personal journey. I will share my initial thoughts and gather your feedback to help me create a plan that feels manageable and empowering for you.
After our consultation, I will dive deeper into the topics we discuss and develop a customized holistic plan that includes herbs, supplements, and lifestyle suggestions to support your goals and align with your individual story. You will receive a personalized herbal protocol, which may include a tea, tincture, and/or capsules, along with a detailed report of recommendations covering herbs, supplements, lifestyle adjustments, and nutritional guidance. I will often provide additional resources and references for further insight.
In addition to your report, you will have access to continuous email support. I highly recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial consultation, and I advise that we collaborate on your health over a period of 3-6 months to achieve the best results.
