Since nutrition advice and herbs are so widely available, some people wonder why they should consult with an herbalist and nutritionist. Aside from looking at your current concern, Keri is trained to look at the "big picture", which allows you to experience a truly holistic approach to health promotion - one that recognizes the importance of physical, emotional, and social health. She strives to address underlying issues such as poor nutrition, lack of quality sleep, and stress among others. From there, she can come up with a personalized nutrition plan, appropriate herbal supplements, and unique lifestyle modifications, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all model.
