ANNA-MARIJA HELT, PH.D.
CLINICAL HERBALIST MICROBIOLOGIST OSADHA NATURAL HEALTH
Herbalism involves more than herbs. Botanical support is part of a larger approach to wellness that involves a healthy approach to living, eating, and rest. All of these areas are considered during an herbal consultation — all in a plan specifically crafted for you — whether your goal is simply to feel better or to get support in a more focused area.
Anna spends as much time reducing the number of supplements folks are taking when they come in as she does in laying out a way forward for them. She is a believer in “more is not better” when it comes to herbs and supplements. Most of her clients are on 1 herb formula. Some are on 2. It’s rare that we go beyond that for the herbs. There may be some nutritional supplementation involved, but this is very focused. She has found ‘simple’ to be an effective approach most of the time, especially when working with someone already taking pharmaceutical medications. Listen to Anna Maria Heldt's interview

Holistic approaches that combine diet and lifestyle changes will greatly improve the effectiveness of cannabinoids for any health condition such as arthritis, Chron’s, cancer etc.
“Those who are most successful in using cannabis to improve or to replace opioid drugs always use a combination of pharmacologic and behavioral interventions. No medication is powerful enough to accomplish this goal on its own. By prioritizing and organizing the proper resources for sleep, exercise, counseling, support groups, and social support, you can ensure your success!”, Dr. Sulak.
