How does Thomas differ from other herbalists?
Thomas’ typical client has been struggling with chronic and often complex conditions for several years. They’ve normally been to several doctors and even other herbalists before they come see Thomas. Many of them have tried special diets and supplements with no success.
While Thomas is confident that he can help most people feel better no matter the health problem, clients who do best typically:
- are willing to make dietary and lifestyle changes;
- are interested in discovering and correcting the root cause of their problem instead of suppressing symptoms; and
- don’t want to rely on unnecessary pharmaceuticals
What conditions does Thomas treat?
Good herbalists don’t “treat” conditions: they treat people. Thomas has helped over 15,000 clients by putting together customized herbal and wellness programs to help with a variety of conditions including:
- Chronic pain
- Autoimmune disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Chronic fatigue
- Digestive disorders (IBD, IBS, GERD/Reflux)
- Metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance
- Migraines and headaches
- Thyroid disorders
- And many more conditions

Is Thomas a doctor?
Nope. He’s an herbalist. Therefore, he does not practice medicine and does not diagnose or treat diseases or medical conditions. His services are not meant to substitute or replace those of a licensed physician and clients in his practice are advised to be under the care of a licensed physician wherever they reside.
While Thomas has many friends that are doctors, and he respects most of them immensely, he has chosen a different path.

- Wellness Plan: customized for your life and your needs. Your Wellness Plan will likely include lifestyle changes, dietary suggestions, exercise recommendations, herbal therapies, etc.
