Meet The Herbalist
After dealing with a diverse amount of various health issues in her own life such as acne, weight gain, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, food allergies and even reproductive problems from the use of birth control! A change was needed so NATURALLY she became her first client! Being drawn to holistic solutions, she began greatly improving the quality of her own life using Herbs, Nutrition, Mindfulness and Science.
*THE JOURNEY BEGAN*
September of 2015 a close family member experienced a stroke. Noticing the suffering happening before her eyes, Carmen decided to not only be a holistic advocate for them but also their Caregiver. Neither of these decisions were easy considering this event turned her life upside down in the process. The knowledge of Cardiovascular Disease, Type II Diabetes & Digestive Wellness allowed Carmen to effectively communicate with her family member's doctors and nurses in order to safely introduce a natural approach to healing from varying modalities. The progress the individual made showed great promise and effectiveness taking them from needing 13 different prescribed medications to ZERO with Carmen's guidance !
The Intro to Wellness/Essence of YOU Program(s) are effective because:

Develops a personal relationship – Her Clients will be able to communicate with Carmen as long as they remain Clients.
Collaborates with Clients– Carmen doesn't replace the Client's doctor; however, she is an insurmountable addition to her Client's Health Related Journey. Instead, she will help the Client communicate with the prescribing Physician(s) with confidence to reduce the Client's dependency on prescribed medication(s) as the need arises with prescribing physicians guidance which can reduce or eliminate the harmful and uncomfortable side effects the Client may be experiencing. She can also teach them how to eat, what to eat, what & how much herbs/supplements to take and when... PLUS MORE! This is all tailored to their SPECIFIC desired outcomes.
Provides a sounding board – Carmen helps her Client's gain control of their health —not just manage their symptoms. Sometimes having someone to talk to can mean the difference in getting past the proverbial plateau.
