Herbal Medicine & Nutritional Supplements
“Acupuncture paves the way and herbs make it stay.” Herbal medicine is in itself a powerful method of healing. Western drugs often control symptoms, but don’t alter the disease process. For example, antibiotics eliminate bacteria but do not improve a person's resistance to infection also, diuretics rid the body of excess fluid without improving kidney function.
Chinese herbs treat the symptoms by treating the underlying condition and rarely cause unwanted side effects.
Herbs are more like foods than drugs and can supplement our diet and fortify our constitution as well as prevent or heal ailments.
Often key nutritional nutrients are needed to bring the body and mind back into balance. Due to poor diet and deficiencies in our soil and food, they can provide a gentle reminder to the nervous system and organs to work far more efficiently as they are intended. Typically these nutrients will often show up in a session and through advanced muscle testing Dr. Judith can make the appropriate recommendations.
Chinese & Ayurvedic Herbal Formulas
Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal formulas are two vital allies with a rich and long empirical history supporting the modern patient who seeks natural healing. Dr. Judith has recommended these formulas to thousands of patients who have suffered from acute and chronic illnesses. She understands that Ayurvedic herbals correctly applied with the three constitutional types in mind, Vata, Pitta and Kapha can be instrumental in bringing the body gently back into balance. Chinese herbal medicine is a complex science onto itself and is integral to a Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment. There are several hundred classical patent formulas and more contemporary formulas which have been adapted for the modern patient. When intelligently applied both can resolve acute and chronic ailments in a safe and supportive way.
Western Herbal Tinctures
“Every good doctor makes their own medicine!”
An herbal tincture is a solution made by steeping either fresh or dried herbs in alcohol or glycerine. The delivery system of the tincture is quick and easy to absorb through the stomach and into the blood stream. Some herbs are best tinctured as their active ingredients can only be extracted by alcohol.
Essential Herbals by Judith developed under the label of Botanical Body, in the early ‘90’s under the direction of Dr. Tierona Low Dog when Judith was a member of her first herbal class in Albuquerque, NM and earned the title of Master Herbalist. Her tinctures include, St. John’s Wort, Astragalus, American Ginseng, Licorice, Echinacea, Reishi Mushroom, and Immune-Stim Plus a combination of GoldenSeal, Echinacea, Osha, Astragalus and Licorice.
Bach Flower Remedies
Flower essences are a type of subtle, vibrational medicine developed by Dr. Edward Bach in 1928, who believed that symptoms of an illness are the external expression of negative emotional states. While herbal therapy works on a more physical level, essences treat an individuals emotions and spiritual well being.
They’re natural almost tasteless, safe and free of side effects. Each time the patient takes the flower essences, they’re not only raising the vibration of their physical body but also shifting their consciousness back to clarity, releasing unwanted emotions which hold limited belief systems in place.
Judith custom designs your individual Bach Flower remedy through advanced muscle testing as a follow up to your treatment.
Conscious nutrition is a foundation for lasting health and well-being. It is a tool that anyone can actively use several times a day to promote optimal health. What you eat feeds every cell in the body. If your intention is to heal, how consciously you feed your cells will make a difference.
Our practitioners will guide you to foods that are harmonious with your constitution. Foods that do not harmonize with your constitution can worsen a condition or be a contributor to a disease pattern. Eastern nutritional counseling is incorporated into the overall acupuncture treatments.
Essentials by Judith
As an herbalist I know and have experienced, the absolute healing power of pure essential oils. They must be used with respect as one drop of oil can be the essence of anywhere from fifty to a hundred plants. That is why I developed this collection of 13 individual organic essential oils specifically chosen as the most versatile and useful to enhance the health of the body and mind.
Rosemary, Peppermint, Geranium, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Rose Geranium, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Clary Sage, Tea Tree, Oregano
Taking time to develop a deeper relationship with herbs and essential oils requires smelling and tasting them, drinking them as tea and cooking with them. In using them fresh, their essence is most obvious. Resonating with a scent is a unique experience as the droplets penetrate the deep emotional areas of the brain inspiring pleasant feelings or dreamlike visions.
