Wen Garden

Wen garden is the Taoist medicinal herb garden at our homestead where we grow some of the Western and Asian medicinals that fill the apothecary jars and become transformed into our Echo Herbals line of hand-crafted herbal products.  Enter your name and email at the top of the page to receive news about garden events, work-days in the garden, and courses in herbalism.

Clinical Herbalism

At the AAHS clinic, we utilize both Chinese and Western herbal traditions, as well as functional medicine (nutritional supplementation), and dietary therapy to treat patients’ ailments. You can be assured that we stay current with the latest clinical research regarding herb and supplement usage. Your herb/supplement protocol will be simple, effective, and safe, and will not be in conflict with any medications that you need to take.
We prescribe herbs in a variety of forms. Chinese herbal formulas may be taken as a strong tea, in powder, tincture or pill form. Western herbs are often gentler and more palatable and can be blended into a pleasant tea for daily use. They are also available as tinctures.
Herbal medicine is ideal for children, and we specialize in the treatment of children, including chronic immune, digestive and respiratory system illnesses.
Consultations via Skype or telephone are available if you do not live locally.  If you have questions about whether herbal treatment could be helpful for you, please call us at 845-687-6211 for a free telephone consultation.

Hillary collaborated with me on a holistic plan that addressed my specific health issues. The worst symptoms—fatigue, brain fog and joint pain—were 80% better within seven months. I am grateful for their skill and care in managing complex conditions in a patient, methodical and encouraging way.
LP, Lyme and work burnout
Your clinic does powerful healing and meaningful work. You have completely changed my life for the better, and I hope others can reap the benefits of what you do. It is life changing, and I will ALWAYS be grateful to all of you, and your mission to heal.

Had to share!! My cravings… are hardly there. I am a believer. Seeing Hillary was the best decision I could have made! Also, her receptionist made me very comfortable.

JM, chronic UTI
Hillary, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It’s been a year since we started working together and OH! What progress we have made! I couldn’t even drink water without pain when we began. That’s CRAZY! I am so grateful to have your expertise and to have you on my team. Thank you for your help. I can’t wait to celebrate our next recovery milestone!
SK, chemical exposure and Lyme
… I developed herniated discs and back pain that at times was excruciating. Hillary treated me with acupuncture, electrical stimulation, and cups. It was like a miracle. Now I’m pain free and have my life back.
DD, lower back pain
I came to Hillary after years of thinking I was doing all the right things. I was feeling disappointed with Western medicine and working way too hard to feel awful and felt like my life was being stolen. I like how Hillary does a comprehensive workup.
JD, Bartonella
I suffered with getting violently ill every month. My doctor told me I have a hormonal imbalance and wanted to put me on medication... the acupuncture and my daily herbal drink have completely resolved my problem.
LN, sudden turmoil disorder
What’s most valuable to me is the knowledge and aid you’ve provided in helping me create balance. I am pleased, impressed, and very happy with the service and caring I receive.
MA, health maintenance
I am fully recovered!! It was a difficult 10 year healing journey and thanks to you, as well as other practitioners and methods, I can now say it is over. Thank you, thank you... for your kind ministrations, wisdom and passion for healing. I couldn't have done it without you!
