A consultation with an Herbalist is recommended for anyone seeking to do deeper work on their health to achieve long-lasting changes in their life. Herbs often act as allies combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Master Herbalist and Nutritionist, Lori Trojan will be your guide as you navigate your own wellness journey; helping you to find herbs and other healing modalities that best fit you and your health goals.

The initial consultation will be anywhere from 1 – 1 1/2 hours, during which time we will review your health history, discuss the goals you wish to achieve in terms of your health and develop a plan for how to reach them.

You will always leave the consultation with recommendations, whether it is lifestyle, herbal, nutritional or a combination of the three.

A follow-up consultation may be recommended and is usually shorter, but this depends on the severity of your issues and your own personal needs.

Herbal remedies can be extremely effective and can naturally ease your body into a state of total holistic health and wellness. However, there is no exact science to this method of healing. Herbs are powerful and health is complicated, so in the best interest of your health and safety, a consultation is required before any herbal treatment can be recommended.

Herbal Consultants are not licensed health practitioners or Doctors, and it is not within our scope of practice to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease. My goal is to be your guide through the world of natural health. I will help you navigate the realm of herbs and alternative healing modalities while offering you a way to find your own path to health.

What is an Herbalist? 

Generally, Herbalists are people with a passion for working with medicinal plants. Often this passion leads these people to becoming traditional healers, clinical herbalists, naturopaths, herbal medicine makers, wild crafters, herb growers or any number of related fields of interest. 

What is herbal medicine? 

Herbal medicine is the art and science of using herbs for promoting health and has existed in written history for more than 5000 years. While the use of herbs in America has become secondary to pharmaceuticals in the last 100 years, 75% of the world population still relies on herbal medicine for their healing practices. 

How is herbal medicine different from conventional medicine? 

Herbal medicine practitioners treat the whole body through the recommendation of herbs, diet and lifestyle. Traditional medical practices generally treat a symptom or a single issue or illness. 

How will I know if herbs will work for me? 

No one can predict which herbs will work best for everyone in all situations. What works for one, may not work for another. Many herbs address similar issues. Experimentation combined with experience and knowledge brings reliable results. 

How safe are herbs? 

When used correctly, most herbs have no serious side effects. However, seeking the help of an expert is recommended. Which part of the plant to use, in what format to use it in, cautionaries, preparations and dosages are all information that a qualified Herbalist will be able to help with. 

How can herbal medicine help me? 

Integrating herbs into a whole-body health care plan can offer effective support for many issues, both wellness and illness.

  • Colds, flu, allergy, immune support, respiratory issues
