*Mary Blue’s herbal consultations are not intended to replace medical care.
*Herbal consultations are educational, and are not intended to treat disease, but support health.
*Consultations take on average from an hour to 1.5 hours.
*Each consultation will come with a recommended daily tea, tincture, nutritional/lifestyle changes, and, if needed, a topical herbal formula.
* The cost of herbs is not included in the consultation price. The price of hebs ranges from $70 – $100 for one month of herbs.
* Please bring a list of your medications and supplements that we keep on file to the consultation.
* Consultations take place at the SAGE CLINIC, 201 Waterman Ave, East Providence, RI 02914
The initial consultation is an in depth interview focusing on health history and health patterns. During the consultation mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical patterns will be considered when formulating a personalized herbal blend.
An herbal protocol can last anywhere from 1 month-2 years. Mary often recommends, after health balance is achieved, a tonic blend to support health and prevent disease.
Mary formulates her blends based on:
* a client’s particular health needs
* protocol compliance
* the herb’s availability
* extraction methods of herbs
* energetics of the client and the herbs
* The first follow-up is done by phone 2-3 weeks after initial consult.
* Depending on the particular client, an in person follow up will be scheduled for 1 month after the consultation.
*Clients are encouraged to contact us if the need arises. Many clients Mary sees for years, recommending herbal formulas for any health needs that might come up.
Price: $100 for the initial consultation
All appointments must be paid for in advance. Full refunds are given to clients who give 24 hours notice of cancellation.
