Abrah Arneson’s Approach to Treatment

Over the many years practising as a Clinical Herbalist, Abrah has learned that when we are heard and understood the possibility of wellness opens naturally. Abrah listens first and offers recommendations second.

An initial consultation with Abrah Arneson is between 90 minutes and 2 hours. During this time, she thoroughly explores your health concerns including your past medical history, family health, lifestyle choices, diet, stress levels and emotional well-being.

Towards the end of the consultation, Abrah will carry out a physical exam that is appropriate to your health concerns and comfort. This exam may include blood pressure, Iridology assessment, pulse and tongue analysis. She will spend time reading your energy body in order to help you understand the underlying causes of your illness.

In this manner, Abrah develops an overview of your well-being and health concern.

Following your initial appointment, Abrah creates a health protocol for you that includes a recommendation for plant medicine, nutritional advice, perhaps meditation or relaxation exercises and guidance for lifestyle changes specific to your health needs.

Because Abrah makes and creates individualize herbal formulas, this makes the medicine both personalized and cost-effective.
