We will work together to overcome any physical digestive and metabolic issues using Chinese herbs and Chinese medicinal nutritional therapy. This is not a one-size-fits-all program. Your success will depend on adopting a highly personalized set of strategies and practices, and we will work together to modify these strategies as your progress unfolds. We will also work together to identify and move through any emotional pitfalls that you will likely encounter during this type of treatment-process.
Life Coaching will be provided We will also work together to identify and move through any emotional pitfalls.
Chronic Illness presents an enormous challenge for most individuals to effectively treat. It is a sign that deeper problems and patterns have gone untreated for too long, and at some level, disease has set in. Sometimes, a chronic illness is irreversible and as a result tends to chip away at the spirit of even the strongest of individuals. Chinese Medicine and Chinese Medical Nutrition can often provide substantial relief from many chronic illnesses. Through Chinese medicinal Nutrition we can target the foods that your body will assimilate the most efficiently, allowing the maximum nutritional breakdown and absorption (a key problem in most chronic illnesses). This program may also include elements of our detox program (depending on the illness)

Most gynecologists have a knee-jerk reaction: if it's menopause, it's time for Premarin. While this may be right for some women, some of the time, it is not right for all women all of the time. While most women want to take their doctor’s advice, some seek to be educated about alternative points of view. Hormone supplementation may be useful and warranted, however conventional pharmaceuticals (like Premarin, Provera, Estraderm, Estrace) are not always the best choice. When combined, acupuncture, herbal formulas, and natural hormone creams can be of enormous benefit.
PMS,skin breakouts, menstrual problems, and menopausal symptoms are signs of imbalance, not normal female functioning. The body was not intended to exist in a state of disharmony and pain. Correcting hormonal imbalances is one area where Chinese Medicine truly shines. This is also an area of particular interest to Kirstin, as she has struggled with many of these issues herself, since puberty. Her commitment to these issues have paid off. Today, Kirstin successfully treats many types of hormonal imbalances...starting with her own.
