Her treatment protocols are helpful to those with extreme dis-ease as well as those just needing a shift, support or wanting to dive into the true meaning of health and wellness. Check out the modalities she uses below with a brief explanation of each remedies’ gift for you…
Gemmo Therapy: 32 different therapeutic remedies specific to the Liver, Kidneys, CNS, Immune system, Heart, Lung, Musculo-skeletal system and Endocrine system. A bottle filled with both physical and energetic properties of the fresh buds, shoots, roots or stems of developing and maturing plants. From these young growths we obtain the highest concentration of the active consitituents necessary for tissue regeneration, favorable growth and development as well as essential drainage.
Unda #’s: Over 1001 #’s of combination botanical and homeopathic remedies used to target an organ system, balance the disharmony in that organ system, improve the immune response of that system and then eliminate any pathogenic build up. Elimination is a normal physiologic function of the body and one of the four pillars of health (Pillar 1- diet, Pillar 2- drainage and elimination, pillar 3- psychological equilibrium and pillar 4- balancing of the hereditary characteristics). Unda #’s work synergistically like no other remedies to drain the system of toxic overload allowing the body to feel free and open to absorbing nutrients, positive energy and allow true healing to occur.
Gammadyn: A physiologic dose of trace minerals that allows the body to heal on a physical level. Each trace mineral has energetic properties as well that work on more of a “homeopathic” level to shift internal dis-harmony. Dosing minerals at a physiologic amount allows the body to absorb just what it needs without “overloading or clogging” the system (extracellular matrix) or the cell.
Flower Essence: Flower essence combination is a gentle yet extremely powerful way to shift a mental belief, emotional feeling or create internal mental emotional release. When the mental.emotional aspect of a personal shifts, there is almost always a physical “letting go” or change that occurs allowing the persons physical body to heal on a deeper level. Each flower has a different personality and when mixed together to make a tincture specific for each patients, the tincture makes a gentle suggestion to your higher conscious. It is then that your higher self gets to decide if it is ready to make the shifts we are suggesting.
Tissue Salts: In 1850, chemist Justus Von Liebig published a study on the importance of certain mineral substances necessary to the life of vegetable organisms – “the life of plants is subject to the presence of mineral salts in the earth that feeds them.” Later, homepath Guillaume Scheussler discovered the same 12 tissue salts were vital to the life of animals. He hypothesized that illness was accompanied by an insufficiency in one or more of these salts and gave the the 6th homeopathic decimal dynamization for human ingestion to retain the internal balance of all the human tissue functions. Today tissue salts are a integral part of healing the body because it acts on an immunologic level as well as on a tissue level. And our entire body is made up of tissue!
Homeopathy: The governing principle of homeopathy is “like cures like”. You in your natural harmonic state have an energey wave or frequency. When illness, trauma, stress occurs, you can be knocked out of your natural harmonic energy state and into another “energetic vibration or element”. This can happen often, but when the body can’t bounce back to its natural harmonious energy state, it gets stuck. Homeopathy is used to help shift physical, mental and emotion disharmony. A remedy with a similar “personality” as the new energy state you are expressing is given to rebalance your internal energetic wave length. If you think about it this way, everything in life is in constant movement powered by energy. Homeopathy is an effective way to rebalance the energetic rhythm of your system by matching a specific remedy to YOU and your current symptoms.
Botanical Tinctures: The essential constituents of a combination of plants using the root, stem, leaf or bark, that have medicinal properties supporting your medical complaint or imbalance are placed in a splash of brandy and water, then dosed in a glass dropper bottle.
Gemstone and Essential Oil Chakra Balancing: There are 7 chakras within your bodies energy field. Each Chakra is an energy center and has a sound, smell, color, music note, time of year, vibration, gem and earth element that is associated with it. Each Chakra is also associated with an organ system (heart, kidney, lung, ect) and an age of physiologic growth. By balancing out these chakra’s or energy centers you can shift your level of health, ability and awareness to a higher level of conscious and being! It is also a great way to release and heal old or new trauma whether physical or emotional as well as move the body through “stuckness” by discharging and filling each energy center with light. Essential oils and gemstone are used to help facilitate this shift. The smells of the essential oils to create new cognitive thinking patterns and the gem stones because each earth stone is made of chemical elements that are also present in your bones and tissues.
Phytogens: A synergisitic combination of three different plant buds whose medicinal extracts are complimentary to each other creating a powerful high dose botanical tincture to stimulate detox, tissue repair and healing.
Biotherapeutic Drainage Therapy: A system devised by a world renowned MD from Belgium named Dr. Girard Guenoit and brought to the U.S. by an equally known and respected ND from Canada name Dr. Dickson Thom, ND. This system is a mixture of botanicals, homeopathics and physiologic dosed nutraceuticals that TARGET an organ system, DRAINS the organ system of past-present-or potential future toxins from food, environmental stress, emotions, spiritual or psychic toxins, medications, internal natural detox and more AND THEN while draining the system also NOURISHES the organ system and entire body while SHIFTING it back to its natural state of balance and function. Some remedy examples are Unda numbers, gemmotherapy, organotherapy, phytogens, gammydines and aroma numbers.
Amino Acids: Are the building blocks of all are cells. Each amino acid has a unique structure that supports its unique function and metabolic action within the body.
Castor Oil: Castor oil is a viscous oil used primarily over the liver to aid in elimination and detoxification of the bodies internal and external toxins absorbed or ingested. When placed over the liver, Castor Oil Packs also aid in relaxation of the central nervous system and detox. When placed on other parts of the body, castor oil is used for healing by enhancing white blood cell activity in the area of application.
B vitamins: Play an important role in cell growth and function. For example, they are used to support and increase the rate of metabolism, maintain healthy skin, hair and muscle tone, enhance immune and nervous system function, promote cell growth and division (including red blood cells to help prevent anemia) and reduces the risk of cancer.
Vitamin D: Main source is from the sun. Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun penetrate the skin and converts 7-dehydrocholesterol to pre-vitamin D3, which in turn becomes vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Cholecalciferol is hydroxylated in the liver to form 25(OH)D3. 25(OH)D3 is then converted in the kidneys to the most active form of vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D3. Vitamin D production is reduced when there is a decrease in the intensity of the sun’s rays or when the skin is washed with soap within 24hrs of sun exposure. There are very few dietary sources of vitamin D. Vitamin D is a factor in the maintenance of good health- immune function, the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, mood stabilizer, cancer fighter and helps in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus..

Probiotics: All over our body- both inside our body (all mucus membranes) and outside our body (skin and hair)- we have little bugs that live with us helping to keep us healthy! Often times when we ingest something (natural or pharmaceutical like an anit-biotic) or if we come into contact with a chemical or/ even change our foods, environment or have increased stress we can cause an internal imbalance. When this happens, often the natural-good bugs that help keep us healthy begin to die and we need to supplement our body with more bugs to help keep us healthy.
Fish oil: Contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that are known to reduce inflammation throughout the body, lubricate our mucus membranes and promote cell function, nerve function, mood and memory. A high quality sources of fish oil is required, absent of heavy metals and added oils that are not 100% from wild fishes.
Chlorophyll: provides the highest concentration of chlorophyllin to specifically support and maintain cellular health. Studies show that natural chlorophyll is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and acts as a cellular astringent and antioxidant, as well as stimulates hemoglobin and red blood cell production. Liquid Chlorophyll is indicated for acne, boils, skin ulcerations, burns, eczema, psoriasis, heavy metal and environmental toxicity, and for oral, buccal and dental abscesses. Liquid Chlorophyll can be applied topically to accelerate the healing of wounds and burns. Chlorgen, a source of chlorella pyrenoidosa specific chlorophyll, is used to increase energy levels. Chlorella, cultured in pure water, is a green micro-algae providing the highest concentration of chlorophyll and phytonutrients, as well as over 70 macro and micro-minerals. Research indicates that regular use of chlorella can help to guard against heart disease, reduce high blood pressure, lower serum cholesterol levels, improve digestion and promote the growth of beneficial anerobic bacteria in the gut. Since chlorella contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, it helps to support and repair organs and tissues. Chlorgen is indicated for cardiovascular disorders, halitosis, immune deficiency, slow growth in children, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, anemia and for accelerating wound healing.
