What others are saying... 

The first thing that worked for my PMS & anxiety

I've tried many different remedies to help with mood swings during PMS and also with anxiety. I was hesitant to spend more money and possibly be disappointed yet again, but My mood swings associated with PMS changed drastically with Dana's help.

Before, I would have such a hard time controlling my mood starting 10 days before my period and just assumed the level I was experiencing this at was normal. I've tried many different herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes. I have a steady yoga and meditation practice but none of this seemed to have an affect when it came to PMS.

With Dana's thoughtful recommendations, after 3 months of taking what she prescribed, I can honestly say my life has changed for the better! I feel much more calm before that time of the month, and if I do experience a shift in my mood it is only a few days before my period starts rather than 10, and I am able to respond to whatever arises in a much more controlled way.

I feel like I am in good hands with Dana. She takes the time to really listen to my concerns, to consider a holistic point of view, and has a wealth of knowledge to share! To top it off she has such a kind and warm presence that I feel really comfortable bringing up anything with her.

I would absolutely recommend Dana. Especially for hormone related issues. I feel that there is not enough education for us as women around our cycle and hormones- I know so much more now thanks to Dana!

With Dana, anyone can feel confident that they are in the best care!


Goji & Schizandra Drops For Hormonal Balance

Thank you so much for sharing the benefits of the Goji and Schizandra drops at the last gathering. Being a Health Coach, I am pretty good about knowing how to understand my body and help others do the same. But the one thing i was missing was my hormonal balance. I started taking it 2 weeks before my period was due and boy did it make a difference. First, my husband claims that my PMS mood swings were almost non-existant, my cramping was very minimal, and I only had 1 day of heavy bleeding. ON an even better note, it has significantly improved my libido. Usually I wait at least a week after a period to have sex but my husband was pleasantly surprised when i initiated only a few days later. He kept wondering when my "Prime" would hit (since they say its in the 30s) and I guess I can say that I hit mine at 36 with the help of Goji and Schizandra drops. I will be sure to share this and your services in general with my clients. I look forward to sitting down with you in the future, maybe for coffee or tea or something and talk about how we can work together to help others heal.


Acupuncture & Herbs for Anxiety & Depression

Acupuncture with Dana has changed my life! Just before I started acupuncture I had gone through countless drugs trying to get relief form anxiety and depression. The acupuncture and herbs have mellowed me out, and now I no longer yell at my child every day. Yay!:) Thank You!


And yes, space is limited! 

What do I have to do? ​

The herbs don't work if you don't take them.  Most of the herbs come in capsules, and you'll need to take them twice a day.  I'll show you multiple ways you can take them.  We'll find something that fits your routine whether it's swallowing the capsules, turning them into a tea, or blending them into a smoothie.  

How much will it cost? 

If it's your first time joining the program, you'll get our introductory package, which costs $250.  This includes two 1:1 phone consultations plus your account setup and your personalized Wellness Plan including a customized Diet and Lifestyle Audit.  You'll then be charged for your herbs on the 13th of each month, and the cost of the herbs ranges from $46/month to $297/month depending on which herbs are included in your package.  We'll decide which combination is best for you based on my recommendations and your budget.  You'll get free shipping on everything.  

Have Questions - here are some answers:
