  Johanna Herget: Biography

I suffered from a major digestive imbalance in my early 20’s resulting in mood swings, migraines and blood-sugar problems.  Through a desire to regain my health, I made a major diet change.  Using Chinese dietary theory to balance my meals, I cut out all sugar, wheat and processed foods while increasing intake of vegetables and whole grains.  Within 2 weeks all my symptoms had disappeared.  In the next 3 months I saw other profound changes happen in my body.  I had enormous amounts of energy, no longer caught the cold that was going around at the time, an improved complexion, and an actual change in body shape to name a few.

For the next six years I read everything I could get my hands on regarding alternative health care and dietary therapy: from Ayurveda to western herbs, Atkins to Macrobiotics.  I was amazed not only by the changes I had been able to create myself, but also by the lack of knowledge I had had before.  I knew that I had to help others find their health and power over their life.  Finally, I decided to formalize my training by entering a Master program in Oriental Medicine.

Today I treat many different forms of imbalance.  I understand the desperation involved when conventional medicine doesn’t help or understand. My goal is to treat people until their health is in their own hands – to help bring patients to a state of balance and teach them how to listen to their body.
