Ayurveda & Herbalism
I use Ayurveda, Indian Medicine and Western Herbalism to treat body, mind, and spirit ailments. I examine tongue and pulse in addition to asking questions, to determine health conditions. Together, you and I create a plan for lifestyle, diet, exercise, meditation, body therapies, and herbal concoctions to heal body, mind and spirit.

Ayurveda literally translates to the science of life. It is a 5,000 year old healing system that originated in India. It recognizes three primary energies (doshas) in the body - air (vata), fire (pitta), and earth (kapha). Each individual is born with a certain birth constitution (vikruti), a combination of these doshas, when in balance with our current constitution (prikruti) we feel healthy, happy and full of life able to pursue our highest purpose. The root of imbalanced doshas can be the result of imbalances in mind, body, and spirit.
Western Herbalism is a system of healing that interweaves British folk remedies and Native American wisdom. Its philosophical roots are based in Hippocrates’ Four Humors, hot, wet cold, and dry. Western Herbalism recognizes the benefits of local flora and fauna to guide the humors back to a state of balance.
