Here you are asking for my recommendations. Important factoids
- I am not a licensed medical doctor, nor do I play one on the internet.
- I do not diagnose, OR prescribe herbs for a medical diagnosis.
- I must have a signature on file that you understand the above two statements, and have read this before I can help you find something natural.
- Your exact diagnosis is not as important as what inhibited your body from resolving it.
If the 130+ documents that I’ve posted here have left you directionless, below are the ways I can help you can find ‘something natural’ to self-heal. And yes, I do see children.
Saturday and Sunday – off
Monday through Friday 2-4 PM (by Appointment)
(These are my semi-retired hours)
This post is required reading BEFORE you come, and you will sign a form when you come that says you have read this. We can’t set up an appointment without verbal confirmation that you have read it. This link also tells you about fees and other costs, directions and do’s and dont’s. This first consult takes a little longer than follow-ups because I explain what I do and why it works and go over the diet.
We will discuss dietary challenges, and what the remedies (that you indicated you needed at the first consult) have done for you. We will see what health projects need further attention. Generally after about 4 -5 appointments it will be clear what is affecting your health AND what kinds of remedies are the best for your body to bounce back from these. I’d like you to become your own herbalist and know the ‘something natural’s that you need to rebalance yourself from your genetics and life’s insults. Follow up appointments will last about 20 minutes or less depending on your projects/questions, and are usually spaced at 3-4 week intervals (or less with children, or those with severely threatening health conditions). Or, if more convenient, you can schedule phone/email consults.
Phone /Email consults
This is a convenience for clients that I’ve already seen or who may have come from a distance, or have trouble getting in to see me for various reasons. All the info for this option is found here. It is important to read about what you can expect from an herbal intervention. DO NOT SEND OR FAX ME ANY MEDICAL RECORDS. You can contact my office manager, Brenda, at PatsOfcMgr@aol.com
This is a drop-in, no-appointment-needed clinic on most Tuesday afternoons, only for those clients who I have already seen in my office for scheduled appointments. The morning before coming to open clinic, please call (757-867-8633). The answering machine will announce if Open Clinic for that Tuesday has been canceled. If there is no cancellation message at the beginning of the announcement then I will be holding open clinic that Tuesday. Open clinic is on Tuesday from 1-3 PM. It is a service for my clients ONLY, not your friends or out-of-town guests. (Please DO NOT come before 1 PM or after 3 PM). I can spend only 5 minutes with you and the fee is $5. Open Clinic is designed for acute problems that come up quickly, like a sinus problem or a bladder irritation, OR, for an old problem that had been resolved with herbal intervention that tends to resurface occasionally. Herbal support for these imbalances can be found in 5 minutes since my clients already understand muscle response testing and how herbal remedies are found and used. Open Clinic is NOT a substitute for a scheduled appointment (or a missed appointment). Please DO NOT come with a long list of complaints, since people are often waiting, and I can only spend 5 minutes with you.
(or Theophostic-Like) Prayer Coaching. Stress is far and away the greatest destroyer of health and balance. What you think does more damage than what you eat. I have found that this type of prayer coaching permanently resolves our damaging thought patterns. Because of this, it will reduce the damage done by your paradigm to your body.
Again, so we are on the same page before a prayer coaching session, I require my clients to read my book. It was written to be a self-help guide but because some aspects of our emotional wounds are hidden and complex, some folks just need a little coaching to get them started.
Consider this…..I have learned more from very sick people than I have from double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. My sick clients taught me how to get them well - things that even my teachers didn't know. I have such smart clients.
** Important Warning **Nothing on this site is FDA approved. Nothing I write here is intended to be medical advice. Follow my recommendations at your own risk. Results may vary, and blah, blah, blah. So if the required warnings have not scared you away, then you have a chance. I'm reporting here what kinds of approaches actually helped very sick people get well, AND the kinds of things that actually made them sick (and it usually isn't lack of exercise, weight, menopause or smoking - it is the underlying cause of all those things.)

In case you were wondering..B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D=Dinner, b=bedtime. Make sure to read What to Expect on an Herbal Program (in the Herb menu) before beginning. Dosages given are about what my clients benefit from. You may be different. Begin slowly and see how each recommendation benefits you.
