Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture, or on their own to medicinally balance the body. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese and Native herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to certain types of cancer. Most prescription drugs are derived from plants, tree, and fungus but can carry a long list of side effects because they are not naturally metabolized in the body.
Through her education and practice, Sabrina is aware of the limitations of both Conventional and Traditional Medicines, although one or both will be necessary at different times during your life.
Today we are missing a large piece of our wellbeing through the lack of nutrients in our soils and over processing of our foods. Please remember, food is fuel used to feed the body and the mind. Your body often has to fight off the “foods” you have given it, rather that utilize them order to thrive. Be mindful of what you put into your system.
Herbs and Supplements are extremely effective and normally have only mild side effects, however it is very important to tell Sabrina about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formulas.

Homeopathics / Flower Essences (FE)
Homeopathic remedies are a system of medicine based on three principles:
- Like cures like. For example, if the symptoms of your allergies are triggered by cat fur, then cat fur would be your homeopathic remedy.
- Minimal Dose. The remedy is taken in an extremely dilute form; normally one part of the remedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.
- The Single Remedy. No matter how many symptoms are experienced, only one remedy is taken, and that remedy will be aimed at all those symptoms.
Similar principals forms the basis of conventional allergy treatment, where the allergic substance is given in a small dose, and in vaccines where an impotent form of the virus is given to bolster the immune system against that particular virus.
Why use Homeopathics/FE?
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Homeopathy is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent.
Homeopathy is completely safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects. Homeopathic remedies can also be taken alongside other medication without producing unwanted side effects and is natural.
Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicine’s which suppress the immune system. (For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex, which is your body’s attempt to clear the lungs)
