Directed Healing at Green Angels Herbs & Healing Arts
in the Healing Arts may all be seen as ways to increase your own involvement in
your health. What begins as direction in healing becomes self-directed
healing. What actually changes over time is the degree of your own involvement
and the level of your own authority.
What happens in an herbal consultation?
- Herbal Consultations
an herbal consultation, you actually sit down with the herbalist and take
the time to discuss your concerns, analyze your current health needs, and
discover alternatives. You and your herbalist will review your current diet
and nutrition, supplements, OTC, and prescription of your current health
situation. We will discuss desired outcome and develop a complete and
integrated program for you. Some consults last only one hour; other
situations may last longer.
Why schedule a consultation?
How are charges determined for herbal consultations?
- People schedule consultations with our herbalist for a variety of reasons.
Some people schedule a consultation for pure improvement of their current health
and to learn about preventative medicine; others schedule appointments because
they have not found success within the current medicine model. Some individuals
just want more control and involvement in their own health.
Our hourly professional rate for the initial herbal consultation is $65.
Monthly programs or periodic re-evaluations may also be arranged at a negotiable
Are herbs included in the consultation?
Purchase of products is separate from the consult. You may purchase products
at any location you select. Green Angels Herbs can put together your order from
our well-stocked shelves of bulk herbs, hard-to-find tinctures, eclectic
formulas, and teas. A file is developed for our clientele and kept confidential
at Green Angels Herbs & Healing Arts.
How do I schedule a consultation?
By calling or stopping by our store and resource center, Green Angels Herbs &
Healing Arts! When you schedule your appointment, you will be given a short
homework assignment ahead of time to complete and bring back. We review this
information together in the office and develop a program based on the patterns
and concerns brought up in the review.
Do I need to know a lot about herbs and holistic medicine to follow the
program the herbalist prescribes?
Everyone walks in with a different level of knowledge of herbs and their
curative properties, so we approach each situation at a level appropriate for
the individual’s most successful outcome. Clients frequently take notes and ask
questions as we proceed, but a brief written outline can be provided later after
the herbalist has formulated a specific herbal program and researched any
herb/drug contra-indications. Ours is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and many
options exist. Herbal classes may become part of a client’s program. The
herbalist may refer to other alternative healing arts professionals. And then,
too, we hope that you find you can learn a lot right at this web site!
