Scope of Practice

I am a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild, Certified in Clinical Herbalism, Clinical Nutrition and Flower Essences. I have over 5,000 hours of training in Nutrition, Medical Herbalism, Disease Pathology, Phytochemistry, Botany, Anatomy, Physiology and Flower essences. While I am highly skilled at my craft I cannot provide a conventional western medical disease diagnosis or treatment. I am not licensed in this way by the State of Colorado, and my services do not replace those of a licensed physician. I advise all clients to seek the advice of and have access to a licensed physician. A referral list of such practitioners is available upon request.

My consultations are designed to educate the client on the beneficial effects of nutrition, diet, supplements, herbs, and lifestyle changes. Clients are encouraged to take responsibility for their own health.

Any herb has the potential to cause an adverse effect. If adverse effects or discomfort occur, stop taking the herb/s immediately and notify me at 720.470.7369.

Some herbs may interact with pharmaceuticals. While I am highly trained in drug-herb interactions, it is important to disclose all the medications and supplements you are taking (including over-the-counter or recreational drugs) and discuss possible interactions with your prescribing healthcare provider.

I may provide you with professional information about possible side effects of your medications. This does not constitute a recommendation to stop taking them. If you have concerns about side effects, please discuss them with your prescribing healthcare provider. Do not, at any time, discontinue use of prescribed medication without the full consent of licensed physician.

Colorado State law specifically prohibits herbalists from dispensing a medical protocol (herbs or supplements) to a pregnant client or a client diagnosed with cancer. We can however, provide such clients with supportive education concerning herbal safety, nutritional and vitalist lifestyle practices.

Any information discussed during our sessions is held in strictest confidence. Exceptions, as required by law: impending suicide, homicide, child abuse. I operate within the bounds of an LLC with limited liability insurance.
