It was my valiant attempt to simplify and improve their healthcare experience. We actually ended up adding another dimension to their already busy and expensive lives.

Don’t get me wrong, we did a lot of good. But if I’m honest, we fell short of what I had envisioned—and what drove me to this path in the first place.

Many of the clients I work with have been treated with functional medicine in the past. It should be no surprise that one question I get is about how herbalism is different.

They have run dozens of tests, only to find out that there’s nothing medically wrong with you.
