I provide holistic herbal consultation that addresses multiple areas of a client’s life. My herbalism is not allied to one particular tradition or teacher, but is informed by Traditional Western Herbalism, American folk medicine, clinical trials, and contemporary writings.
I do not use essential oils or “detox” treatments. I try to use whole-plants when possible, or simple extracts such as tea or tincture. The Hedgerow believes strongly in food as medicine, and thus many of my recommendations may include changes to one’s eating habits in addition to herbal treatment. I do not emphasize weight loss or any specific eating plan, instead focusing on adding whole, natural, and wild foods to your daily routine.
I encourage clients to adopt suggested plants into their gardens if possible, and we can work together to integrate landscape and lifestyle into a single plan. Similarly, some treatments may address the social and emotional sources of stress through self care and relationship building.
The Hedgerow also has a small line of ready-made herbal products, including salve, teas, tincture, and bath blends. Please inquire if you would like a current inventory list or to make a purchase.
Please Note: While I am familiar with many herbs and their actions in the body, I am not a medical authority and make no claims to treat or cure to any disease. I will happily refer clients to a trusted doctor or therapist, and I will never tell clients to ignore or neglect traditional medical treatment or prescriptions.
Any herbal practitioner who rejects all medications or Western medical practices should be held suspect and not trusted with one’s health.
