Herbal Medicine Consult


100 per hour Virtual OK

Botanical medicine is both gentle and powerful, working on many levels to help a person regain their balance and health. Dr Gryder will help you choose suitable botanical medicines for your concerns. As part of an herbal medicine consult she will help you sort through the herbs that you already possess, and prescribe one herbal formula just for you, which you can fill at the NUNM medicinary in Portland or perhaps compound for yourself. She also is familiar with many of the herbal supplements offered on the market and can help you evalute which are best suited for you, and how to dose them. Many people's attempts to self-medicate with botanical medicines fail because they do not know how to dose them properly. Some herbs are for short term use, others are safe to take long term. Some act in dramatic ways like pharmaceuticals, others work in synthesis ways, because they have many constituents and have a variety of actions. Individual sensitivities further complicate the process of determining an appropriate herbal protocol. Dr Gryder grows herbs and makes her own medicine, as well as using commercial products to create customized tinctures or teas for patients.

Training & Qualifications

I am a Naturopathic Doctor with an emphasis in botanical medicine, nutrition and lifestyle. I am also a gardener, herbal pharmacist and outdoorswoman with a direct and personal relationship with the plants. I look forward to hearing your story and teaching you more about the herbs that can help you.

Availability & Preferences

My availability varies dramatically from week to week because I spend a lot of time out in the wilderness, where there is no internet or cell phone contact. Please be patient, I will respond to your inquiries as soon as I am back in the loop. Usually my outings are not longer than one week.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi
