    Vitalism in healing is a traditional strategy based upon the principle that the healing force of nature is present in every cell of your body. True healing takes place when we allow that Vital Force to support growth and healing on all levels for the fulfillment of each individual’s highest purpose. The Vitalist incorporates all aspects of science, especially physiology and pathophysiology, but equally values knowledge from traditional medicine, empirical observation, instinct & intuition.

    An herbal consultation examines many aspects of health. Using a holistic system, we can work together to enhance your health and wellness to optimum levels. We will discuss nutritional status & how the use of herbs, nutritional supplements, dietary & lifestyle changes may contribute to an increased sense of well-being. We will then suggest an herbal formula or formulas specifically designed for the client, if needed. All herbs and nutrients are fully explained so that the client has a firm understanding of the suggested protocol and expected outcome.

    In further consultation, any medications that the client is taking may be evaluated to reduce the risk of any negative interactions with the herbs and supplements.

    These consultations are for educational purposes only, and do not replace the services of a licensed physician. Julie James is not a Medical Doctor, and does not diagnose or treat disease. If you are sick, you should see your medical doctor.

  • Sherry Patterson L.Ac

    Sherry has worked in the medical field since 1971. While working for a large orthopedic medical group, she interviewed patients and heard about their experiences with western medical care. She began to look for a more integrated and effective way of offering relief from disease and discomfort, while creating a stronger partnership with patients in their pursuit of health and wellness.

    The Universe answered.

    Sherry found her way to Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica where she was trained in all facets of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She graduated from Emperor’s with a Masters Degree, Magna cum Laude.  She is also a trained Reiki practitioner as such, combines acupuncture with energy work to achieve powerful results in her patients’ lives.  Energy blockages can be freed and energy centers (Chakras) aligned allowing the body to heal itself, physically and spiritually.  And, of course, Sherry has many years of experience using traditional Acupuncture, which can have a profound effect on a wide array of health issues.
