“For over 20 years I have gone to Danette Steele for health advice and herbal solutions. Her integrative approach and open mind is refreshing, and her extensive knowledge and attention to detail is impressive. I trust her implicitly.”

What to Expect during the Initial Consultation?
The first visit lasts 75 – 90 minutes. Prior to the initial consultation, an intake form is completed by the client, and is sent to me before we meet. During the first session together we discuss current health concerns, past medical history, family health, diet, exercise, and emotional well-being.
From this review, I assess the healing priorities and root causes with the client and propose a herbal protocol with nutritional and other appropriate advice. A summary of suggestions is provided at the time of the visit with further notes to follow.
What to Expect during a Follow-up Consultation?
When ongoing help and support is needed, follow-up consultations are scheduled. These visits are usually 30-45 minutes in length and take place every few weeks, as needed.
During these sessions we discuss how things are going, evaluate the progress, discuss any new issues that have come up and review the herbal and other protocols. Follow-up consults provide an opportunity for refinements to the personalized herbal protocol and wellness plan.
Following each consultation, I take additional time to review all the information gathered along with the suggested plans for the client and then customize individualized herbal formulas. Herbs are taken in a number of ways. I use teas and tinctures most often and also recommend capsules, syrups, inhalations, ointments and other herbal treatments, as indicated. Care is taken to ensure that quality preparations are used and that best practices for safety are always followed.
