Vancouver Herbal Medicine Low Income Clinic Consultations: Student Clinic
Alchemy & Elixir Health Group is an approved herbal medicine clinic for students completing their herbal medicine education.
Approximately once a month, low cost mini herbal medicine consultations are available to the public at a reduced cost and appointments run approximately 60 - 90 minutes.
On your first visit to the student clinic, please arrive 15 minutes before the start of your appointment time. You will be required to complete a clinic intake form in advance and prepare a 3 day diet diary of what you typically eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The consultation is either with an advanced student conducting the consultation (with the clinic supervisor, present in the room) or with beginning students observing the consultation techniques and practicing their case history recording skills. The instructor guides the student through the appropriate assessment and reviews the proposed personalized health program so that you can be confident that you are receiving the most appropriate information regarding your specific health history from the student. Herbal medicine recommendations may include specific herbal teas, medicinal tinctures, capsules, aromatherapy, and topical creams.
The purpose of Clinical Training is for purpose of training advanced students enrolled in herbal medicine programs and enables students to fine tune the art and skills of case history taking, communication skills, learn examination techniques, learn the proper use of medical equipment, and practice their formulating and dispensing skills.
Intake forms will be sent to you via email prior to your appointment. The student consultation is $25 plus GST – any medicines or vitamins recommended are additional. We accept cash, visa and mastercard.
