About the Clinic

The Clinic at CSCH provides holistic wellness consultations to the general public. We work with herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle changes to educate and empower our clients to take charge of their own health.
Each clinician at the CSCH Clinic is a Certified Herbalist with at least 910 classroom hours in nutrition, herbalism, and related topics. All cases are reviewed by senior faculty for additional safety. Our clinicians have access to faculty for any questions or concerns.

Scope of Practice

The services at the CSCH Clinic do not replace those of a licensed physician or any other licensed healthcare provider. Our clinicians are not trained in the diagnosis and treatment of disease according to the standards of medical science. Our clinic is happy to provide suggestions for available sliding scale medical services in the local area.

Standard Fee

$ 50    per hour


Vitalism in healing is a clinical strategy based on the principle that Life, Nature, and the Great Spirit from which they arise are fully present in all the tissues of the body, and also in the psyche, the spiritual heart, and the soul, sustaining life and health, providing momentum for personal evolution on all levels, and for the fulfillment of the highest purpose in social and spiritual life. Vitalist practitioners employ clinical strategies and methods which support this life power through the encouragement of nourishment, digestion, rest, and appropriate activity, identification of purpose in personal life, connection with nature, an active spiritual life, identification and removal of obstacles to cure on all levels, and avoidance of methods which suppress or distort life processes. The Vitalist incorporates all aspects of science, especially physiology and pathophysiology, but equally values knowledge from traditional herbalism, empirical observation, instinct, and intuition, and is not confined to the narrow materialistic worldview that dominates much of modern science, medicine, and social life.
