Why consider a full consultation with pharmaceutical Research? 


If you take pharmaceuticals, it is very important to disclose this information, because combining certain herbs with specific drugs are not always appropriate. Heidi will investigate each one of your medications, report back on any vital nutrients that are depleted while taking them, and the side effects that can manifest without proper supplementation.

For example, statin drugs used to regulate cholesterol, over time can deplete Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which acts like an antioxidant and is found in every cell in your body. CoQ10 is essential for keeping you kidneys, liver, and heart healthy.
Not only do statin drugs lower cholesterol, but also block CoQ10 synthesis in the body. Without healthy levels, you may experience high blood pressure, fatigue, achy joints, muscle weakness, angina, irregular heart beat, heart failure, muscle cramps, memory loss, shortness of breath, gum disease, increased risk of cancer, frequent infections, and liver damage.

Some of your current health symptoms could be related to something as simple as a nutrient deficiency, yet mimic symptoms of a disease you may not even have. You can use this information when discussing your desired health plan with your regular physician. Knowledge is power. 

Heidi Berkovitz is a trained clinical herbalist, offering thorough investigative research into your personal health history and
needs. 

A full herbal consultation lasts approximately 60-90 minutes, consisting of a detailed review of your intake form and discussion with you about your health history, lifestyle, current issues, and goals.  


With a compassionate and trained ear, and specific interactive questions, Heidi will work with you to help uncover the primary factors possibly contributing to your current condition. 

When the Q & A session is completed, Heidi will begin researching your specific case, paying close attention to any potential drug/herb interactions and avoidable side effects, if relevant; and will put together an herbal, dietary, and lifestyle protocol catered to your specific wellness goals. This process can take up to two weeks to complete.

Heidi's specialties include, but are not limited to, chronic inflammatory diseases, pain management, drug side effects and appropriate supplementation, drug interactions, and integrating food and nutrition-with a goal of working with your specific likes and dislikes. 
When your protocol is completed, you will meet again to review the information, allowing time to ask questions and begin on your road to wellness.
