"Dr. Heather has been so helpful for me and my family. I love her practical, intuitive approach to healthcare, especially her emphasis on preventative care. She has taught me so much about nutrition, basic homeopathy, supplements and herbs. What I love most about Dr. Heather is that her goal really is to get you to be proactive, to get you on your OWN path to maintaining wellness. She's not one of those docs that thinks you need to come back for tons of sessions or that makes you spend too much money on supplements and such. She understands what it is to be a busy parent, so her suggestions and solutions are always affordable, practical, easy and do-able!"

"Having Dr. Heather help me develop a preventative pharmacy has been great, especially when the kids get sick or under the weather, or while we are traveling. Dr. Heather gave me the basic natural remedies and then expanded it to cover our own special needs: allergy symptoms and sinus stuff for Kamryn and bronchial stuff for Alex."

"I brought my 10 year old daughter to see Dr. Heather. My daughter, was looking to learn more about health and nutrition, and definitely didn't want to hear it from me. With the assistance of Dr. Heather she was able to take control of her own health and resolve her own issues. Dr. Heather and my daughter created a personal natural pharmacy kit which my daughter loves and I love that she is taking more interest in being proactive in her own health."
