Now you can take advantage of decades of experience to help yourself and your family to a life of wellness!
Watch Kim's introductory video about how your body works, what keeps it from working, and how to help it work its best.
Personal wellness is more than not" being sick". It's finding balance in physical, emotional & mental health. A private cosultation will identify body systems which may need support along with nutritional, enviromental, emotional and energetic solutions.
Kim uses over 30 years of experience to help you be your family’s primary health care provider. Private consultations are the best way to identify the lifestyle and nutrition program that will be most effect for your body. Regardless of your health concerns, Kim’s approach will leave you with a complete understanding of which body systems and organs need support, and how to best provide for their needs. You will be provided with customized information and suggestions for supplements, lifestyle and diet changes and other techniques which may help in maintaining optimum health. She believes there is no supplement that everyone should take, or one exercise that should be universal. Ideally most of our nutrients should come from choosing correct foods rather than from supplements. Your program will include only the number of products necessary to support your individual needs, and should reduce over time. Kim will also test environmental. emotional, and energetic meridians for techniques and products which may be helpful in those areas. No testing is invasive. Your initial consultation will last about 90 minutes and includes a follow-up visit at no additional charge. Follow-up visits take about 30 minutes. The first recheck will be in three to four weeks; additional rechecks will be scheduled as needed, usually at six to eight week intervals.
Phone appointments are available for out-of-town clients.
Kim travels regularly to Florida, New York, and Charlotte. Additional locations by appointment.

Natural Health Options
Whatever form of natural health supplement you choose, be sure to educate yourself on all aspects of your health care. Let your diet and your attitude be the foundation for a life of wellness, not disease. When you don’t feel well, look for the root causes rather than seeking to simply substitute an herb or remedy for your medication. If you are taking medication for a serious condition, consult with someone well trained in herbs and alternatives before making a substitution and stopping your prescription. Your body will need time to reestablish it’s awareness that it is required to function!
are simply plant materials, leaves, roots, berries, etcetera.
The part of the plant which is used depends upon the intended purpose and the species of plants. “Herb” does not imply dangerous or even therapeutic use; the plant foods we eat on a regular basis are herbs and many can be considered medicinal in relative use, including onions, garlic, parsley, and others.
Plants are easy to digest and assimilate and offer specific nutritive qualities based upon their color and chemical composition. For example, carrots are high in beta carotene, an essential nutrient for the liver and the eyes, while the sodium in dandelion greens is essential for the health of the stomach lining. Herbs also have an energetic impact on the body. While lemons cause tissue to contract, red peppers make your nose run and increase circulation generally. Nutritive and energetic aspects of plants combine to create their traditional uses for varying symptoms as a result of their impact on differing types of tissues and organs.
Herbs generally available in health stores and from practitioners are safe for virtually all individuals when taken in rational amounts. The quality of herbs varies significantly from company to company; in general the adage “you get what you pay for” applies as it would to other food products. Plants cannot be patented. Products declaring that they are patented, standardized, or potentized are not true herbals and need to be taken somewhat more cautiously.
are similar in preparation to homeopathic remedies, but are more subtle still, and have their principal impact on emotional issues. The best known is “Rescue Remedy”, or “Five Flower Formula”, a traditional (and very effective) remedy for shock or trauma. Flower essences are taken in extremely dilute doses, usually four drops of a dosage mix under the tongue four times daily. Each remedy addresses specific emotional issues, gently helping to increase awareness and resolve conflict affecting personal health.
are extremely dilute substances approved by the FDA as over-the-counter remedies. As such, they may legally contain claims to treat specific diseases, and must contain the standard OTC warnings, though traditional homeopathic protocol would not support limitations on use by pregnant women, for example. Homeopathic remedies are chemically inert, with the only “active ingredients” being lactose in homeopathic tablets or alcohol or glycerin in liquid preparations. They are based on the premise that “like cures like”, the source of recognition for the treatment of malaria with quinine and the original inspiration for the concept of immunization.
Are distilled from plants, especially flowers, and other materials. While a few (primarily from plants we would normally consume in other forms, such as lemon or mint) are intended for internal use, most are intended for external application or inhalation. Many have documented antibacterial and antiviral effects, while others enhance digestion, calm nicotine cravings or reduce inflammation.
Remember that to maintain your health it is imperative that you keep your chimneys open!
Your first chimney is the bowel system. Adding raw food to your diet and switching to whole grains will increase your fiber intake and encourage bowel function. Normal elimination is one movement for each meal you consume. I encourage at least three raw foods with each meal, and limiting between-meal snacks to raw vegetables, fruits and nuts. Be aware that elimination should not be a difficult, uncomfortable or lengthy process. Diarrhea is essentially water with undigested matter, not simply a free-moving bowel. If you have not generally had two to three movements per day, do not be alarmed at the frequency change, or at a much stronger odor and darker color as you eliminate old fecal matter.
Next is the urinary system. While you should not drink excessively while eating, you should drink at least half as many ounces of water as you weigh in pounds during the course of a day, much more than most people consume. One quart is 32 ounces. It sometimes helps to mark a gallon jug at the appropriate spot and fill it each morning, making sure you empty it by bedtime. Water quality is vital. I suggest reverse osmosis purified water, since it is not only extremely clean, but also has a higher oxygen level than distilled water.
Third is the skin, which you can support by dry-brushing prior to bathing with a loofah or body brush, especially in the underarms and on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Use products for personal care which do not contain petroleum products such as mineral oil or petrolatum, SD alcohols, propylene glycol, sodium sulfates, aluminum or triclosan. Wear natural fiber clothing washed in non-petroleum laundry products, which excludes most commercial detergents and fabric softeners, even those claiming to be "environmentally friendly" or fragance-free.
Finally, the mucous membranes, including the respiratory passages. In addition to the above suggestions regarding petroleum based and other products, synthetic fragrances such as perfumes and air fresheners may aggravate these tissues, and should be avoided along with pesticide and disinfectant sprays. Pure essential oils are usually non-irritating worn as fragrance or used, (as tea-tree, lemon or lavender), to clean and disinfect.
