 Disease cannot be healed in isolation of the whole body. 




Your body does the healing.  So how can the body heal if it's not working properly?


People contact me daily and say they don’t have the money, time or interest in multiple appointments and just want the herbal medicine for a specific disease.   After some questions, I then inform them that they have many health issues that are preventing their body from functioning properly.  


The body is continually working to heal itself but it can’t without homeostasis.


If you want to recover from a serious health condition or disease then all systems and organs of the body must be working properly. How can the body heal form any health condition with poor digestion, constipation, poor liver function or insomnia?  Notably, when overall health improves chronic health conditions often resolve on their own. This is because often those "minor" health issues where the causes of the "major" health issue.


Treat the whole person first before a specific condition.  


The point I want to make for those looking for a "cure" is that it’s a mistake to just treat your main health issue and ignore your overall health especially digestion and elimination. 


Health-care needs to be holistic. 


For example, by de-congesting the colon, liver and lymph system we see can often see an improvement in energy levels, the reduction of pain, the improvement of memory, the loss of extra weight, the reduction of swelling and more. Furthermore,  by following an anti-inflammatory diet and taking anti-inflammatory herbs we can see an improvement in inflammatory  bowel conditions; joint, muscle and nerve pain; headaches,  blood pressure, anger issues, prostate enlargement and more.  Furthermore, by improving digestion and nutrition we can often see an improvement in hair growth, bone density, energy levels, sleep, chronic weight loss, fatigue, muscle cramping, anxiety, and more. 


"Help your body heal and it will heal you,"  Khabir. 



If you need assistance to identify the causes or your health conditions, treat your body holistically and address your health issues, please contact me. 


Note: I will not be available in the USA on for Skype appointments from Oct. 2oth to Jan. 2nd, 2018. If you are interested in your first appointment or a followup appointment please schedule as soon as possible.

We are now beginning to experience the crispness of autumn after the raging heat of summer. The wind is also gathering strength and showing the signs of the coming winter. Basically, autumn is dry, rough, windy, erratic, cool, subtle, and clear. For the body it is a time to prepare for a winter with cold weather and dryness. I recommend you to make adjustments to your diet and lifestyle in the autumn to prepare your body for the winter.    Read more.
