“I am a Medical Herbalist with a Master of Science degree in Herbal Medicine. I have been working with people like you for over 20 years to help improve their health and their quality of life. I have a clinical holistic medicine practice that I run from my home on an organic farm near Port Burwell, Ontario.
Understanding the importance of both modern science and ancient healing systems, I feel that often it is best that people walk with a foot in both worlds. It is important that all health practitioners work together as there is a time and place for conventional pharmaceuticals and procedures, and a variety of complementary healing systems. Optimal health is multifaceted with multiple layers, and therefore may require multiple levels of healing and treatments. Herbal Medicine combines both science and historical traditional knowledge, offering help and healing on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
I also teach a variety of classes on herbal medicine and health from my home, and in other locations as requested. I am very passionate about helping people to restore and heal their relationship with Self via Nature. It is in our DNA to harvest and make herbal medicines. Every woman used to be a herbalist for their own family. And I believe that it is this DNA reminder that is calling people back to learning about herbs and just how healing they are. I look forward to being a part of that remembering for you!” – Christine Dennis, RH, MNIMH, MSc. (Herb. Med.)
We are typically focusing so intently on working hard at making a living thus living in the present. Now ask yourself – is your health such that you are enjoying the present? What about your future? *Research has repeatedly revealed that health is consistently believed to be most important in determining a good quality of life.
You spend your time and money investing in your home, your vehicles, your savings as well as your family and other relationships. But what about you and your health? What about your family’s health?
Herbal medicines are a very inexpensive investment when given by a qualified Medical Herbalist who offers an individualized approach that focuses on you and your health complaint. It is more successful than self medicating with herbal medicines from a health food shop, plus, it is less expensive as you are being given recommendations for just what you need. Recommendations are almost never the same as another person with similar symptoms, as it is the person being treated not the illness. This individualized approach is the key to successful treatment.
There is a time and place for both conventional drugs and herbal medicines. And they can be safely used together when prescribed by a knowledgable Medical Herbalist.
Herbal medicines do not have the side effects that drugs do and they help heal the underlying cause of the illness; they do not just cover up the symptoms.
