Frequently Asked Questions

Inherent Wellness empowers clients with life changing opportunities to rediscover their wellness and vitality.  We offer a unique approach for clients seeking an alternative path to address their personal health concerns.

We support our clients by identifying and helping to resolve the underlying factors contributing to unbalanced health.  Rather than treating and managing symptoms we use Live Blood Analysis and Iridology techniques to identify the root-causes and inform appropriate support that encourages good health. Once the underlying issues are identified, we help clients resolve their feelings of ill health by using specific dietary adjustments and western herbal medicine recommendations that help facilitate the body’s natural self-regulatory functions.

Our work with clients primarily revolves around providing access to tools and opportunities that support the microcirculation and offer strategies that can be considered to facilitate a process called regenerative detoxification.  Ultimately our focus is to offer an alternative perspective so that clients can be empowered to make informed decisions on how they would like to manage their health concerns.

Live Blood Analysis is a qualitative assessment technique that provides an indication of the health and vitality of the blood which is an important foundation of health.  Visually assessing the blood helps to identify areas of imbalance and sensitivity that may be causing unwanted symptoms.

A single drop of blood is collected from the finger using a single-use sterile lancet (like those used for blood glucose testing).  Blood is transferred to two sterile glass specimen slides to collect a live and dry blood sample.  All blood specimens are discarded upon the conclusion of each appointment.

Live blood analysis is a tool used by a skilled practitioner to inform health balancing strategies.  It is possible to see red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, lipids and some microbial forms such as bacteria and parasites which may be a possible explanation for symptoms.

Each new client appointment begins with a review of their client questionnaire, discussion of a clients’ current health concerns, an overview of personal wellness goals and a Live Blood Analysis assessment.  Blood samples are observed using a high-powered microscope and images are projected on a display for both the practitioner and client to view together.  The practitioner will provide an overview of the blood, identify various cell structures and functions of each and explain how these may impact the clients’ health.  Herbal protocols and dietary adjustment recommendations are outlined and provided to all clients during each appointment.  Iris photos and analysis are available for established clients during subsequent follow up appointments.

Iridology (iris analysis) is a method used to evaluate tissue integrity in the body as represented by the structure, color, and density of minute fibers of the iris.   An anatomical extension of the central nervous system, visual assessment of the iris allows for the identification of the areas of relative strength/weakness which are reflected through nerve pathways connected throughout all areas of the body.

Visually assessing the iris of the eye will provide valuable information concerning one's health and well-being.  Observing the colors, markings and changes to the iris offers an indication of the presence and location of inflammation, inherent strengths and weaknesses, signs of tissue healing, areas of toxicity and systemic congestion, relative constitutional strength, acid levels, nutrient deficiencies, digestive compromise and drug accumulations to name a few.

This approach allows for an opportunity to discuss with clients various topics such as blood cell production and health, digestive system function, nutrient requirements, hormonal imbalances, immune system function, cardiovascular health, microbial infections, detoxification, oxidative stress and inflammation.

Live Blood Analysis and Iridology offer unique and efficient real-time methods that inform where clients may require additional support through regenerative detoxification, lifestyle changes, dietary or nutritional adjustments, medicinal herbal medicine or support from other natural and complementary health practitioners.  Ultimately, we are here to offer information for each client to consider so they can make informed personal health care decisions.

All clients will be provided with customized health management recommendations that may include consideration for western herbal medicine, lifestyle or dietary adjustments, and/or suggestions for additional support through complementary and alternative medical practitioners. Clients will have the opportunity to follow the recommended protocols for a period of time and invited back for re-evaluation at a future date, sometimes in a few weeks or couple months.  Ongoing health coaching packages are available for those clients who are seeking ongoing support.

Microcirculation comprises the smallest blood vessels (capillaries) present throughout all tissues of the body that provide a pathway for the transportation of oxygen, nutrients, hormones and the removal of metabolic wastes.  It is crucial for these pathways to be free of obstructions so that our body can function as intended and be free from dis-ease.  Learn more about microcirculation here.


This is an approach to eliminate toxins, digestive wastes, metabolic byproducts and clear obstructions that have accumulated in the body and which may be contributing to feelings of ill health. This method provides a path for clients to address the root causes by taking the steps necessary to maintain the internal environment within which the body can heal.  Success is often found when one removes fromt he body that which does not belong, such as wastes and toxins.

BEMER technology supports the body’s natural self-regulation processes using a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) to deliver a patented therapeutic signal designed to improve healthy microcirculation through the targeted stimulation of vasomotion.  We offer BEMER sessions for our clients to complement their health management strategies.  More information about BEMER can be found here.

No, we do not diagnose or treat diseases as this is something that requires a medical physician.  We do not give medical advice and encourage all clients to continue consulting their medical physician for all matters related to any medical condition they may be dealing with or medications they may be taking.

Our approach is to offer a unique perspective and educational information that can help clients make informed health care decisions.  We offer tools that help support the body's natural metabolic pathways and inherent ability to regain balance.  We believe that an ideal environment within can provide the conditions for the body to heal itself.

We offer a few appointment options in our New Westminster office and at various community partner host locations.

Consultation fees range from $100 to $200 depending on appointment type.  More information is available here.

Due to high demand and limited appointment availability, clients are asked to be on time for all appointments.  We kindly ask for a minimum of 24 hours' notice to cancel an appointment.  Missed appointments without adequate notice may result in a 50% cancellation fee.  Having said this, we realize that life situations do arise from time to time so we are always willing to work with our clients to find a mutually satisfactory solution.
