How do you work with clients?
I schedule in-person natural health consultations at my practice, Natural Approach to Health, located in Minerva, Ohio 44657; in-person natural health consultations include a physical & emotional iridology reading, counseling, herbal and essence therapy, and the creation of a natural health program, for both short-term and long-terms goals. I also set telephone consultations for our out of area customers and clients; I call the person at a set time by telephone. This consultation includes all but the iridology reading.
What is the cost and time for initial consultation and follow-up work?
Both an in-person or telephone consultation are set for a one-hour period, and cost $125.00 an hour (by either telephone or in-person). Phone consultations are best for specific questions about detoxifying or cleansing, particular herbs or essences, or specific questions. A natural health program requires an hour consultation.

What is your experience with the Blessed Herbs cleansing products?
Whether you are a client, customer, or practitioner, welcome to the first step in taking charge of your health or for those to whom you will help along the way! Detoxification and cleansing with Blessed Herbs products cannot only be used as preventative health care, but also to reverse years of accumulated toxins in the body, which has lead to dis-ease processes in the body.
After years of being Natural Health Practitioners, we have reached a level of understanding about how the body works, when it works, and when it doesn't work and just what is needed to bring it back to harmony and balance, or homeostasis. Of course, every person is different so the challenge is always in customizing natural health programs for that person that will bring healthy rewards to them in the short-term and long-term. However, when you realize what a toxic people we all are, often based on nothing more than what we eat, drink, wear, breathe in, and where we live and work, Herbal Detoxification and Cleansing is usually the first step to regaining health. Rather than trying to suppress symptoms and thus block the ability of the body to eliminate what is irritating it, we aid the cleansing process. We do this by taking herbs and supplements that support the eliminative functions of the body. We recommend that everyone should do at least one two-week cleanse each spring and each fall. Most people will also benefit by starting their health-building program with a good cleanse. There are of course, exceptions to this rule, due to specific illness, medication use, pregnancy or nursing, or extreme weakness, anemia or emaciation, when building a program for the body it should first be strengthen before cleansing.
When you cleanse you may experience many things. Most people say they feel great and had more energy and cannot wait to do it again. However, as we know there are those who are physical and emotional genetic traits and dispositions to certain dis-eases will create a healing crisis to take place and they may see that cleansing is something difficult. Here is where working with a natural health practitioner is so vital even for cleansing. Education for the client is necessary - in every aspect of any illness they may deal with, understanding Hering's law of cure and how the body will begin the process of cleaning out any cells that may be causing problems, and the different needs for the body, based upon each individual client's different emotions and different beliefs. Cleansing is so diverse in what may happen, that working with each individual and their case will never be the same as anyone else. Because you are not only looking at what they eat, and drink, but what beliefs they have, what emotions abound with them, what traumas that may have occurred in their life, and what they are really willing to change. Cleansing will help any person come to "Know thyself", so that then they realize that only they can cure themselves.
In our work as Practitioners, we have discovered many cleanses over the years. The one thing we do know is unless you consider the whole body in cleansing you will not reach the potential to heal any dis-ease, illness or discomfort. On the average, it takes 21 to 30 days to cleanse properly the entire body systematically with very deliberate intentions. Martha Volchok co-owner of Blessed Herbs, one of the world's finest herbalists, developed these wonderful Blessed Herbs cleanses which we highly recommend for all of our clients, customers and practitioners to use. Herbal detoxification and cleansing with Blessed Herbs will get you started in a place to begin the process of healing. Then you will want to look at the next step in creating an Herbal Protocol for your health.
