Naturopathic consulting recognizes the inherent healing abilities within every person. The consultant’s role is to identify and help remove obstacles to healing & recovery while facilitating, augmenting and guiding the self healing process –rather than suppressing the symptoms. Several basic guidelines to care include the use of medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, to use the least amount of force necessary to evaluate and apply care. To avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms, and to acknowledge, respect & work with an individual’s innate ability to heal. A naturopathic consultant educates their patients about achieving balance and health in their lives. Clients are expected to play an active role in their health maintenance as they learn how to become responsible for their own healing.
Our Statement of Faith:
The mind, body and spirit have a huge impact on your overall health. Each person is unique in their health concerns and is treated as a whole person. Prevention of disease with proper nutrition & education is of the utmost importance – so that you can become a proactive participant in your health! Natural Choices Botanica is based in the way of the Traditional African Healers of Egypt, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa & the Native American Indians; all of whom teach balance & harmony with yourself and the earth. Holistic Practitioners encourage you to evoke the healing power of love, hope, humor and enthusiasm, to help release the toxic symptoms of hostility, shame, greed, depression, fear, anger and grief that you have held onto since your birth.
Natural Choices Botanica chooses to evaluate your nutritional status and incorporate easy ways to increase your nutritional intensity. A single nutrient deficiency or chronic sub deficiency can lead to disease. We will evaluate the proper modality for you & your condition through recommendations and corrective therapies. Holistic Health Care is a long term commitment you make to yourself. There are no magic bullets or pills that can make you healthy. It is a day by day series of choices in what you drink, what you eat, how you live your life, and how you grow your spirit. I would be honored to help you in achieving your goals.
Bach flower essences (remedies) form a part of alternative medicine. They comprise a therapeutic system that uses dilutions of flower essences developed by Dr. Edward Bach to balance physical and emotional disturbances. Flowers contain resonances of the emotional conditions found in people. He believed the right essence could help to bring back the patient to a positive, happy condition; think of it like receiving a bouquet of your favorite flowers (it makes you happy).
Dr. Bach distilled the essence of certain flowers, and chose the right ones for each client. He knew that the human being was more than a physical body; that it incorporated life energy, sensitivity, feelings, and a spiritual body. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants interacting with the subtle bodies that help people with physical illness. Flower Essences address the emotional response to their issues by simply using the energy of the plants.
Bach Flower Essences work as part of a holistic program of health care. They are not a substitute for medical attention or professional psychological counseling. Bach Flower Essences work on subtle levels. They gently help to release old blocked energies held within our body, mind and emotions. We can achieve harmony and balance to all aspects of our being through these vibrational remedies. Take our comprehensive test and see what flowers are right for you.
Simple saliva and urine tests can be done in a few minutes in the office to show you the efficiency of your metabolism.
Our tests will help indicate the following health challenges:
* enough available minerals in your system,
* a zinc deficiency,
* a vitamin C deficiency,
* a calcium deficiency,
* a stressed nervous system,
* an oxygen or water deficiency,
* malabsorption problems,
* adrenals that are fatigued or exhausted,
* too many free radicals in your system,
* too much harmful bacteria in your intestines.
These tests provide quantitative, tangible and reproducible results that are available and can be checked regularly.
Recommended testing is monthly until a nutritional protocol is developed that works for your specific needs. You will receive a comprehensive summary of the test results & recommended suggestions. Preparation for Urine Testing includes restricting salt, protein, coffee and supplements 2 days before taking sample. Take first mornings urine, at least 8 hours before eating. Keep refrigerated until tested.
Your hair contains all the minerals present in the body, including nutritional minerals as well as toxic heavy metals. Hair mineral analysis is a laboratory test that measures this mineral content in the hair. Our test reflect the how much of these elements are in your our tissues, while providing our clients with a vivid picture of your internal environment.
Natural Choices Botanica works with an independent testing laboratory specializing in hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) for health-care professionals worldwide. Our laboratory partners and its employees are dedicated to providing timely, accurate and precise laboratory services, high-quality nutritional products and clinically relevant information and consultations. We will continue to demonstrate our commitment to the principles of ultimately serving the client, by maintaining an emphasis on a Holistic approach to health care treatment.
Some benefits of this test:
- Development of a precise nutritional therapeutic approach based on the recognition of eight (8) individual biochemical types using elemental analysis of hair.
- Categorization of individual nutrients according to their sympathetic or parasympathetic effects.
- Recognition of the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic responses to metabolic dysfunctions.
- Recognition of the vitamin/mineral, mineral/mineral and vitamin/vitamin interrelationships in the nutritional recommendations.
- Establishment of the link between the nutritional, neurological and endocrine systems, as determined by hair mineral patterns.
- Development of metabolic supplements synergistically formulated for specific metabolic types.
- Identification of endocrine interrelationships and their impact upon biochemical and nutritional status; recognition of specific nutritional influences upon the biochemical and endocrine systems.

Kinesiology Testing is a diagnostic technique that is valuable to many procedures and treatments. It is a viable, efficient and effective tool for determining the body's needs. Kinesiology is currently being used by many healing disciplines: medical doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopaths, holistic dentists, veterinarians and other practitioners.
When our body's energy system processes a stimulus, there are thousands of instant reactions going on in the nervous system on a cellular and tissue level. Many of these are observable. Like the questions asked in a lie detector test, our heart rate may increase or decrease, our breathing rate may be altered, our pulse can change, our digestion may be effected, our skin texture will change (sweat/clammy) and muscles may get momentarily weaker or stronger.
