Customize your own blend to your liking! See below.
Herbalists today believe and seek to help people build their good health with natural sources. Plant based medicine is considered to be food rather than medicine because they're complete, all-natural and pure, as nature intended. When they are taken, the body starts to be cleansed and strengthened which allows healing to take place.
Unlike chemically-synthesized, highly concentrated drugs that can produce many side effects, plant-based medicine can realign the body's defenses, helping it to heal itself with minimal or no side effects. Instant miracle cures are rare; instead, botanicals offer a way to put the body in tune with nature and balance the iner ecology.
My fresh, hand-blended, hand-encapsulated formulas are made with the highest quality organic and, where possible, ethically wildcrafted plants. In the few cases where a particular botanical is not available organically grown, I have used a high quality non-organic alternative.
Most importantly, the botanicals are safe, nutritious, non-toxic, and non-habit forming. Every formula at CALM HealthWork’s Botanical Apothecary includes a superb and balanced blend of many of the following:
- Sea vegetables

Why Use Blends?
Each formula is developed as a blend - instead of as a single herb - for several reasons: Customized blends such as these are more balanced, more powerful, have a greater effectiveness while reducing any uncomfortable side effects and detoxing effects. That's because I combine a single dominant botanical with assisting and supporting botanicals, carrier botanicals, and balancing botanicals. That's why they are more effective than single herbs or random blends. I invite you to try the difference!!
Herbs in Consults
In each consultation, I will recomend the herbal formulas that would be most appropriate to support your body on it's path towards wellness. I often start with the Basic Cleansing Program because it is the first step in cleansing, nourishing and opening eliminative organs. It is recommended for three months.
How to Purchase:
All formulas can be purchased as either powders or capsules.
- Powders: measure the amount you need (instructions are included), combine with a small amount of water or juice and drink. Not for the faint-hearted! With a few exceptions, these have a very earthy taste! Some formulas are also quite "hot" due to additions such as ginger or cayenne. It is best to "chase" the powders with a pleasant tasting liquid. This is by far the least expensive choice.
- Capsules: A bit more expensive yet is taste-free! Instructions are included to help you determine dosage.
The beauty of these formulas is that we are able to blend Formulas together to address several issues at once. For example, if someone has issues with their bowels, lymph, nervous system, and thyroid, we will combine the four formulas that would address each issue. After combining the Formulas, we encapsulate them together so you receive all four forumulas in each capsule.
In the light of full disclosure and transparency, I am including the ingredients of my herbal formulas here. The amounts of each herb used in each formula is proprietary information however the ingredients are available in their entirety so you can be fully informed. At the same time, if you see any formulas that "speak" to you, let me know! You can custom blend your own formula.
These formulas are not yet available for sale on the Internet. Please use the form on the right to inquire about them and their availability. Thank you!
Customize Your Own Blend: Here's how!
Even without formal, herbal training you can customize your own blend because you are the expert when it comes to your own body. You know what it feels like to be inside your skin; you know your body's many unique characteristics and idiosyncrasies better than anyone on the planet.
By reading through the descriptions of CALM's formulas, you will have an innate feeling that you need a certain formula or blend of formulas. If you know you have respiratory issues, you may find that both formulas that address the lungs are pertinent to you. At the same time, let's say you have constipation, are tired alot and find it difficult to get warm. You might consider combining both Asthma and Respiratory formulas, with Bowel Rejuvenator, and Biological Support with Heat. Voila! The perfect remedy that intuitively feels good to you.
