"Thank you so much for being powerful listeners and for the helpful herbal formula!"​  



"Thank you so much to the Acorn School of Herbal Medicine. I felt so heard, safe, held, and supported throughout the online consultation. That this amazing opportunity is made available to the community is a blessing and a wonderful gift. I look forward to incorporating the recommendations for nutrition and wellbeing into my way of living. Be well and thank you so much from deep in my heart."        



"I had an excellent consultation at their free monthly clinic! I received a thorough intake and valuable recommendations for addressing my health concerns. They took their time to hear about my health history and did a great job explaining how and why to use certain supplements/herbs. I felt cared for and empowered to take care of my health with simple lifestyle changes and natural supplements. Highly recommended!"




"I've learned about ACORN from a friend, and since I've been struggling to improve my health on my own I decided to reach out and seek help. I was pleasantly surprised by the skill and knowledge of the practitioners. Definitely looking forward to try the herbal formula they created for me!"  ​
