Wellness Counseling

Willow Health & Wellness is a services based wellness business that believes that each individual is their own health advocate and that to advocate effectively they need partners in educating them in regards to their health challenges and goals.  Our medical system is not very helpful with providing people with alternatives to drugs and procedures.  This is where we are most helpful because we can work with you to help you understand the alternative choices that are possible in the health challenges that you may be facing.  We prefer to “work with” your physician if not in person but for your doctor to know that someone is working with you in regards to alternatives to pharmaceuticals and/or procedures.  We are always available to meet with or talk to your doctor if that is needed.

While working with clients we are dedicated to teaching them how to live a clean, healthy and happy life.  To achieve that we work with you and review all parts of your life and suggest areas that need to be addressed in regards to working toward that goal.

We look at your health, the foods you eat, the personal care products you use and the products you use around the house.  We will delve into your life in ways that challenge you to change for a better & healthier future.

We embrace the whole person at Willow health and work holistically with you.  That means that we look for the root of the problem to resolve it and once that occurs the symptoms begin to retreat.  We do not treat symptoms, we treat people.  People are not a compilation of symptoms, symptoms are the manifestation of a body that has fallen out of homeostasis.

We are experts at restoring your health and maintaining your health.  Barbara works as a vitalist practitioner which means that we believe that each individual person has energy (electricity, vibrations or whatever you choose to call it) that travels through our body. I think we can all agree that we are electrical beings?  This energy travels throughout our bodies and it animates us and keeps our heart pumping & our digestion /elimination working.  This energy is gone when we pass away.  I personally do not equate the energy I am discussing here with a soul or spirit.  I also believe we are triune beings with a body, soul and spirit and I do not think that either the spirit or soul is the energy I was discussing.

Vitalists believe that when there is an injury, any injury be it physical, mental or emotional, that our energy becomes blocked and negatively impacted.  We work to keep our energy flowing throughout the body,  We can use therapies such as acupuncture, acupressure, Herbs, supplements, massage, reflexology counseling, physical therapy…..any treatment that addresses the injured area.

Barbara Myers,  ND is a traditional naturopath, master herbalist and a nutritional counselor.  As a vitalist practitioner, Barbara is always focused on getting to the root of any issue because that is where the healing truly needs to start.  With years of experience working with people through their issues and challenges, Barbara has a unique ability to target the areas that need work and to get to the root of the problem.

When making an appointment with Barbara Myers, ND, we will email a medical history form to fill out before you come to your appointment and email or mail it back to us if that is possible.  We also ask them to email/mail or bring any tests that have been run in the past 6 months.  I will review any information that has been sent to me before our appointment.  During that first appointment, Barbara will  perform an interview with you asking you about as many aspects of your life that you are comfortable with sharing with her.  Each of us are a whole being with a body, soul and spirit and these parts of ourselves can have profound effects on each other.  We also get into your living and working environment which can, as well have a profound effect on your health and well being.  We get into the products you use on yourself and in your home as well.  Barbara is working to get a “whole” picture of who you are as we begin our journey together to bring you to optimum health.

Barbara is an experienced and educated traditional naturopath.  She have extensive experience with herbs and am trained as a clinical herbalist and master herbalist.  We always prefer treating (when necessary) with herbs and herbal formulas then with pharmaceuticals. We do believe that pharmaceuticals have a place in the medical world but I also feel they are very over used and used when not needed.
