While becoming more environmentally sound is a good idea, revamping the medicine cabinet might also be a great way to pay tribute to the world.
Natural Health Consultants (NHC) founders Carrie and Chris Ruscher, are innovating the way Gordon Countians are taking care of themselves.
Offering a full-service alternative to pharmaceutical diagnostics, NHC refines remedies to help soothe your body back to being in balance.
How does it work?
When clients are not getting the desired results from their primary care physicians, or are just curious as to what natural health care has to offer, they will meet with the consultants at NHC first.
“Mainly, we use a computer program that helps find the imbalance in the person,” said Carrie. “We do natural health testing, which is a body scan, of all the organs and systems to see what is out of balance, and find out what homeopathic and herbs would balance those systems.”
The computer program consists of sitting down at a desk, and letting the consultants use a probe and bar to scan the hands of the client. By doing so, the probe will detect what is going on in the body, according to Carrie.
“You go through difference points in the hand, and what we are doing is taking measurements through a meter box,” explained Carrie. “Each point on the hand corresponds to an organ in the body; all of the readings are coming directly from the body.”
She said that the process is painless and usually takes about an hour and a half to do.
If a person is interested in skincare, a body scan is usually not performed.
“If they are coming in to just do a skincare, we will do a facial and let them decide what they like,” said Carrie. However, if a person doesn’t know what is causing their ailment, a body scan is a great starting point.
At NHC, there are a bevy of services offered. From skincare to getting skinny, there is an alternative to pursue.
Whether it is detoxing the body or trying to fit in last year’s summer dress, there is a unique and safe solution to try.
“We do the detoxing footbaths; we also consult people with weight loss and burning fat,” explained Carrie.
One way they suggest to burn away those unwanted pounds is by drinking coffee.
Through Boresha, clients at NHC, are melting away fat by drinking a fresh brew. Boresha B skinny is a thermogenic fat-burning coffee, which controls hunger, balances energy, buffers caffeine, and combats stress-related eating.
“They actually get their beans from Africa, so they are also helping build a sustainable resource for the people there, too,” said Carrie.
Her husband Chris added, “And a certain percentage of all the proceeds go back to Uganda.”
They both made it a point to educate the community on knowing exactly what a person is putting in and on their body.
With skincare, if you use a cream that is white, it is probably not the original source; it’s probably been bleached,” explained Carrie. “All the skincare we offer and the Amazon products we use are focused on animals that are being extinct in the Amazon rainforest; it’s all about trying to preserve the earth.”
With the Amazon products, each bottle has a different species that is at risk for being extinct in the years to come. It is a way to raise awareness and bring good health, according to Carrie.
What are the benefits?
“Since we are about natural health care, naturally we aren’t going to stop putting things on our face or drinking coffee and tea, so what we are trying to do is find alternatives for people,” said Carrie. “The reason why natural healthcare is more beneficial is you are trying to be preventative number one and number two you are usually looking for the causes rather than the symptoms.”
She said that while they don’t diagnose, treat or cure people’s ailments, they try to treat the body with the nutrients it needs.
