With the traditional and energetic diagnostic approaches, Herbal Medicine is particularly effective in treating many of today’s chronic and acute conditions, including:
High Blood Pressure
Low Energy Level
Prior to your appointment, you will be provided with a Client Intake Packet (one can be uploaded under the "Forms" tab). Please complete all the forms and turn them, along with any relevant blood work or lab results, to Poshe’, Skincare and Wellness, 1329 Broadway Street, Suite 201, Longview, Washington 98632 or email them to one week prior to your appointment. Consultations can be done in person, by telephone or Skype. If at all possible, an in-person consultation is preferable, but I understand that circumstances can make that difficult.
When you arrive, I will have evaluated the information and will be ready to get to work! We will discuss your health status and how the use of herbs, nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes may contribute to an increased sense of well-being. We will evaluate any medications that you are taking to reduce the risk of any negative interactions with the herbs and supplements. As we talk, I will start to create a personalized protocol to support you in your goals. This protocol may include any of the following items:
-Herbal Products (decoctions, tinctures, powders, teas, infusions)
With your approval and input, a finalized comprehensive protocol will be created for you. We can order any herbal products you will need through an online pharmacy that I work closely with, to ensure top quality, fresh supplements. All I ask is that you follow the proper dosages that I have carefully outlined for you. You are not required to purchase any products as a part of your intake. All herbs and nutrients are fully explained so that you have a firm understanding of the suggested protocol and the expected outcome. Suggested herb protocols may be available immediately following a consultation, but more often will be made available 48 to 72 hours post-consult, in order to give focused attention to formulation of a product specific to your needs.
Initial consultations usually last about 1 hour to allow you ample time to talk about your health concerns, though it may be longer, or shorter, depending on the extent of medical history, amount of material needing to be covered, and the number of questions you may have..
Follow-up consults are set according to the goals we mutually agree on. Usually, a given protocol is followed for 1-3 months. For optimal results, a re-assessment at that time can allow for any adjustments to the herbal formulation and nutritional protocol. For chronic or more complicated health concerns, more follow up visits may be necessary. You may, of course, schedule a consult prior to your follow-up if you have something you’d like to discuss sooner. Usually 30-60 minutes is required for a follow-up consult. Prior to your follow-up consult, please provide any updated lab results or reports, and any questions that have arisen since our last time together.
Fee Schedule: Consultations run $90/hour, and do not include the cost of herbal products. Depending on individual health concerns, 1/2 hour consultations for $45 and 15 minute consultations for $25 may be arranged.
Insurance programs, including Medicare, generally do NOT cover holistic therapies at this time, although you are encouraged to check with your own individual insurance company regarding your benefits. We will ask for payment for health services at the time of the appointment-- please bring cash or a check. We will provide you with a receipt should you decide to seek insurance reimbursement.
Cancellation Policy: If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please notify me by phone or email at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. Be advised that you will be charged 50% of the anticipated cost of your scheduled appointment if cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Thank you for your consideration of the practitioner’s time and of other clients waiting for appointments.
