I Testify that it is true that those who wish to acquaint themselves deeply with Nature must turn her pages with their feet [by walking]. Her handwriting is learned from the letters. Nature, with her various vast landscapes, of which each is one of her books.
How Can Plants Empower You?
In my world, Earth is perfect! There is just the right amount of minerals, oxygen in the air, the soil is ripe to produce amazing plants, fruits, and trees, and US as humans are able to enjoy the gifts of Earth. These plants and mother nature is so wise beyond most of our understanding. Each plant has the ability to work within our human form to create harmonious balance. Tapping into mother nature’s deep resources of plants enriches our lives and vital life force. There is a deep connection to plants and humans as plants are part of our everyday existence since the beginning of our time here on Earth.
“The history of herbal medicine is of course as old as man himself, and our present knowledge is the product of thousands of years of observation and trial and error by primitive peoples all over the world, and codification and experimentation by the great herbalists of the past 500 years. Modern medicine is but a minuscule part of man’s attempt to overcome disease; for a million years before the hospital and the laboratory, man searched for green medicine in the plants that grew all around her. Thousands were remarkably effective.” ~Ben Charles Harris

What to Expect?
April is a clinical herbalist. Both client and herbalist co-create the best route for supporting your health goals. A 90 minute initial consultation is recommended for all new clients. This initial session includes a look at your total health history and health goals. A complete review of symptom patterns, lifestyle, nutrition, and emotional/mental/spiritual health patterns will be explored.
After your appointment you will receive a custom herbal formulation from April’s Apothecary. This blend may be a tea, tincture, powder, essential oil blend, or salve made from 100% organic ingredients. Your formula may be picked up or we can ship them to you. Pricing for herbs range from $20 – $60 per month. Our goal is to make these herbal formulas affordable, so let us know if you have financial concerns regarding the cost of your herbs.
In general, April recommends a follow-up consultation two-weeks after you begin taking your herbal formula/s. Your follow up consultation will allow you to check in regarding your progress and will give you an opportunity to reflect on your healing journey.
The number of follow up visits will vary depending on your individual health goals. For general wellness, two to three follow up visits are recommended. For chronic or more complicated health concerns, more follow up visits may be necessary.
