Classes and Consultations

Learn to make your own health promoting preparations.

Individualized consultation class is now open to distance learners!


The next class starts in October and will be the last cost priced at $75.  After the first of the year I am going to have to start charging $25 more at each level, because services and supplies, just keep getting more expensive.

$75 for the course for people who live close enough to Iowa City that  you can pick up your self-care package. 

$100 for the course for distance accounts for shipping  and handling of self-care package.

More information:  I don’t do  consultations like most of you probably think of them.  Frequently when people contact me for a “consultation” they are looking for me to hand them a natural alternative to a pharmaceutical product or OTC preparation, at the end.  That’s just not how I work.  That’s not how wellness works.

I approach achieving wellness with the idea that all people need to establish and follow a health regimen which meets their physical and emotional needs. Plants preparations contribute to our wellness in a variety of ways, but they don’t work in a vacuum.

Incoming clients are enrolled in an six-eight-week herbal self-care course. How long the class runs kind of depends on class participation.  The deadlines are fluid because I know we are all very busy these days.

During the course, you will be learning how to make  herbal preparations l  and how they contribute to a healthful lifestyle but you will also be analyzing your diet, looking at how your lifestyles choices impact your health, and designing your own regimen with a little help from me.  You will also learn how to apply your newly learned skills to family care.

The course contains recorded lectures, how-to tutorials and plenty of valid reference material available in a student lending library. There will be reading assignments, cooking assignments, preparation tutorials, asynchronous class discussions and feedback. We will have weekly Q & A sessions in a group chat.

Because I feel like asynchronous learning environments are most convenient for adult learning, the class will be taught primarily online. This cuts back on me having to spend hours trying to make everyone’s schedule jive.
