Vitalism affirms that we each possess an innate capacity to heal, the Vital Force, which seeks to be in balance with the rhythms and intelligence of Nature. A combination of herbalism, nutritional interventions, and lifestyle adjustments can profoundly activate the intelligence of Nature expressed through the human body.*
As Vitalists, we celebrate Nature as a supreme, intelligent, and self-organizing system that desires all of life to live in harmony. Symptoms are seens as a healthy expression of the Vital Force seeking homeostasis, and by assessing patterns of health holistically, we address the root cause of the imbalances.*
In my practice,
I see chronic stress, a disconnect from Nature, and stuck traumas as the most prominent barriers to optimal health.*
Chronic stress causes oxidative stress in the cells, and contributes to autoimmune conditions, sleep disruptions, systemic inflammation, gut dysbiosis, hormonal imbalances, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, brain fog, exhaustion, and more. Working with specific plant allies and a plant-prioritized, whole food diet supports optimal wellness at a cellular level.*
A disconnect from Nature is often circumstantial or a natural effect from trying to survive within a materialistic and patriarchal paradigm, often involving complex social and environmental layers surrounding access to nutrient-dense foods and plant medicines. This disconnect manifests globally as “lifestyle diseases,” poor nutrition, having a “black thumb,” social discord, or feeling lost in your life path.*
Recent and intergenerational traumas get stuck in our physical and emotional bodies, manifesting as emotional disturbances, poor eating habits, addiction, sleep issues, inflammation, and a heavily guarded heart-center. Building your body’s resistance to stress and increasing vitality with diet, herbs, and lifestyle practices supports the non-linear and complex process of trauma recovery.*
By working with plant medicines, Vital practices (like movement, herbal baths, Earthing and sleep), and dietary interventions, I guide my clients through near-term, short-term, and long-term strategies to accomplish their unique health goals in a way that is sustainable and empowering.*
I support the Vital Expression of clients suffering from symptoms related to chronic stress, digestive system distress, autoimmune conditions, or recovering from viral infections.
I have experience supporting clients with issues including:
- Leaky gut
- Food allergies and sensitivities
- Metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance
- Estrogen dominance and other hormone imbalances
- Skin eruptions
- Mast cell activation
- Lyme disease
- Mold exposure
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Head traumas
- Sleep imbalances
- Nicotine and cannabis withdrawal
- Free radical damage from environmental toxins including radiation, and more
I am skilled in empowering clients to have more productive conversations with their primary care providers to ensure they are getting the most comprehensive support posible. If your condition is beyond my scope of practice, I will refer you to a licensed provider. Though I cannot analyze lab results, or diagnose disease, I am adept at co-creating holistic solutions in response to diagnostic data from your primary care physician.
