How long will it take for me to feel better?

It can take from one week to a few months for you to experience change. The longer you have had symptoms, the longer it takes to mobilize the body to change.

What will I have to do?

Each client is unique, therefore each plan is unique.  You may begin with supplements, a cleanse, a diet or a therapy.  You may need to do more than one thing at a time.  You may need to take several formulas at the same time because each condition involves multiple levels of symptoms.

How much will this cost?

Therapies will generally require more than one or two sessions to get change.  Protocols of supplements, herbs or homeopathics can cost from $100 to $500 depending on the issue.

How long will I have to take things?

This is a progressive process so we are changing things every 2-4 weeks until your symptoms are better.  Acute conditions like the flu may only take 24-48 hours, but more complex conditions such as Lyme Disease can take a few months.

If this is your first experience with Natural Medicine, then you may want to read a little bit about it.  We suggest that you peruse our online magazine, The Herbal Advisor.  It is a compilation of articles, protocols, podcasts and more from Dr. Karen Clickner.  She was The Herbal Advisor on World Radio Geneva and the magazine grew from questions submitted by patients and her case studies of numerous diseases and conditions.  To check it out, click here.  You can also read her blog here.

Your Appointment

We encourage you to think about what your goals are for your health and your body.  Do you have uncomfortable symptoms that do not go away? Do you have an acute condition that you want immediate help with, such as the flu, food poisoning or a migraine?  Have you received a scary diagnosis and want more options?  Are you trying to change your life or experiencing a change of life, such as a new job, an upcoming event or the grief of a loss?

Natural Medicine has options for all aspects of health and healing from natural solutions for severe illness to ways of reducing stress in daily life. By identifying your own goals and needs, it will make it easier for us to know what to suggest.  

Also we have two locations, so please be sure that the therapy you would like is available at the location you prefer.  You can see which therapies are provided at each location by clicking here
