TERRA GOLD HERBAL MEDICINE & HOLISTIC HEALTH CARE
SANTA BARBARA, CA
Santa Barbara-based Terra Gold, Acupuncturist, provides herbal medicine remedies which can be highly effective in treating the root symptoms of many health issues.
How do Terra Wellness herbal remedies help my health issues?
Terra Gold, a licensed acupuncturist, has a series of ways that she checks for health imbalances by administering herbal remedies, supplements, homeopathic remedies, and suggested dietary changes. Tongue assessments (in-person or through up-close photos) can help to determine organ function imbalances and decide on the protocols that will assist in recalibration.
Terra often suggests that her clients get a specialized functional-medicine urinalysis lab test that gives fine-tuned markers for many metabolic imbalances. In certain cases, she suggests getting blood tests as well. Beyond this, she also uses a series of Japanese palpation techniques (either in-person or over live Zoom video session) that further helps her determine the “causal chain” in order to treat both the symptoms and the root of the imbalances.
Terra Gold's herbal remedies are high-grade formulas that she crafts under a private label using the highest quality herbs available. Some of them are available in her online store, while others are created specially to meet the unique needs of her clients. She carries many medical-grade nutritional supplements in-office, and can create Fullscript or Wellevate accounts for clients with recommended products that they can purchase in their own accounts with best pricing and low shipping costs.
What can I do if my doctor tells me not to take herbal remedies?
I work with many patients who take both Western medications as well as vitamins and herbs. For those who have conventional medicine practitioners who wish that they not use herbal medicines, I effectively use dietary changes, homeopathic remedies, flower remedies, acupuncture, acupressure magnetic therapies, and yoga therapy
Many conventional medicine MDs aren’t trained in the use of herbal remedies or even given much nutrition training in their required education. Schooling is very different for herbalists, who recognize that medicine is an art and a science in which the whole individual can be treated through lifestyle modifications. No one herb will work best for everyone in all situations.
