Holistic support of people experiencing chronic illness by using herbal medicine as a way to facilitate health and reconnection to self and other. Common potentially related conditions are fibromyalgia, mold illness/exposure, toxic heavy metals, Lyme disease, chronic Epstein Barr, cognitive challenges, and autoimmune disorders. Mon primarily works with herbal and nutritional therapeutics, supplements, and lifestyle recommendations. Herbal recommendations can look like custom formulated tinctures/extracts, powders, and teas. All recommendations are personalized to suit the needs of the person receiving care.
Mon works with the understanding that environmentally acquired illnesses involving mold, toxic heavy metals, industrial pollutants, tick borne diseases, and chronic viral infections are occurring at epidemic proportions in people with chronic illness. They fully embrace both the tradition and science of herbal medicine, and recognize the power of combining natural and conventional methods to healing. Mon offers guidance on supplemental holistic healthcare therapies (such as acupuncture, energy healing, etc) and advises on integrative approaches with conventional medicine when collaboration is possible and desired.

This session begins with an acupuncture session that helps to open up the meridians, coupled with a heated castor oil pack to help open up the lymphatic system. Generally the liver is one area covered plus one more area in the body.
Once you are all settled a unique combination of craniosacral therapy and massage is used depending on your specific needs.
Chinese Herbal Consultations
For as long as humans have lived on this planet they have gathered plants to help with nourishment, healing and ceremony. Here at NOURISH we honor this age-old tradition. Chinese herbal formulas are compilations of single herbs carefully put together to help balance out various conditions. Herbal medicine is used to treat acute issues such as a cough or allergies or might be prescribed to balance out the constitution and thus help to prevent future ailments. These formulas are safe and effective and don’t have the negative long term side effects on the liver and kidneys that many Western medications can have.
Sometimes a simple nutritional supplement is the most effective way to create a profound change in the body. From Omega-3 fatty acids, digestive enzymes and mineral supplements to glandular formulas to support your hormonal axis, your practitioner will choose the perfect combination to help you feel better. Sometimes supplementing your nutrition with one missing link can make all of the difference.
