New Questions

***If you haven't checked out our herbalist Carlos Guerra, do so soon!!!***
  His answers are awesome and his grasp of complex cases is great.  We have a lot of new questions answered by him this month.   Find out more about Carlos and ask your questions.  And he is available for in depth consultations too!
We cannot get very specific in our answers.  Most of them are highly complex.  Our herbalists haven't yet perfected their mind-reading skills.  An indepth evaluation is often necessary to give special care to an individual's unique situation.  Remember this.  Would you follow advice given by someone that did not know you?

Other holistic modalities are offered throughout the year and information can be found on the website or Facebook.  One of our special hosted sites.
