“From this day on, your perspective on health will change.”
Click the photo to see my video introduction -
My vision is to offer health and self-care support in person or using one of the technological advances like chat rooms, cell phones, video skype, and email. I have been practicing self-care and health for over 20 years. The main area I see that most of us need are a diet that works for us ongoing, not being forced into a rigid dogma, low-fat, low-anything. Other areas of vast importance are more movement and fun exercise in the outdoors, learning to practice breathing for health and restoration, and getting better quality of rest.
I also see that our relationships with ourself and others must be sustainable and healthful. Many of us give too much or take too much from ourself and others. One of my teachers talks alot about the need to find peace with ourselves, peace with others, peace with Life and peace with Death. Peace feels open, feels receptive, feels curious. Teachers for thousands of years have left breadcrumbs for us to follow. Want to find the gold?
What I do
Imagine you take vitamin D, or zinc. Did you ask yourself what this one isolated nutrient actually is? What its helping nutrients are that are only found in nature and whole foods? What it might imbalance by taking it? What offsets this imbalance? I can guarantee you that most people do not think about this. Enter me, The Health Alchemist. I offer ways to come to health in wholesome ways, through foods and herbs and special tonics, whether they be supplements made FROM FOOD (not from coal tar waste, chemical and petrochemical by-products, or from corn starch from GMO corn), or from special preparations.
How I do it
Imagine now you go about your daily eating. Most of us eat foods that have an inherent energy, like hot, cold, or drying. And most do not know how to navigate and use foods instead of having food use us. Many of us eat foods that act like kindling on a fire, they burn hot and bright quickly, but leave soon and leave us without long-term support. This more of what I do.
I help people change by monitoring their diet, giving them “homework” to set health goals, and find ways to love food more, love our bodies more, love our relationships with food and ourselves more. I also offer ways to experiment safely with food changes, and see how you react, which tells us alot.
I give a packet of information with all the things I see that need to be focused on, like these vegetables, and avoid these. I also give a comprehensive health assessment, detailing what I found in our first visit. That first visit is going over the intake forms, examining the iris, tongue, pulses, touching points to determine pain and discomfort, using old medical techniques like orthostatic blood pressure, temperature, and more. This is very comprehensive.
I also am offering Health Support Groups this year, a place where people can gather for support, learn cooking and simple self-care, and even get support via chat rooms, and over the internet and phone if need be.
Please check out the Intake Forms by clicking here. If you need quick health feedback based on practical terms, and practical applications, then please use this service. It only costs $35 for the interpretation of your entire bodies health. For $125 paid at three visits, phone or skype sessions, you can get a Health Starter kit with food, herbal, and supplement recommendations. And you also get a one-hour consultation in person or over the phone. Sometimes email consults are necessary. Ala-carte consultations are $100 per hour, $50 per 30 minutes and $25 for 15 minutes.
