Private Consultations
The vast majority of Judith Cobb’s work is one-on-one health consultations. If you have a health concern, or if you want to practice preventive measures, you may book appointments with Judith. Her expertise lies in listening (sometimes to what clients don’t say), observing, and questioning to draw out the important bits and pieces of information that are needed to create wellness programs. The most common comments Judith hears at the end of appointments are “I feel better just for coming here” and “it feels good to know I’ve been heard’. Judith encourages clients to write down their questions and concerns prior to appointments and to bring all of their supplements and medications to the first appointment – sometimes this has been laundry baskets full. Long-distance appointments can easily be done by phone or by skype.

What Should You Expect?
What should you expect when you come for appointments with me, Judith Cobb? Each appointment is handled on an individual basis. Your needs are paramount. We may not accomplish what I want to in the appointment, but that is not important as long as we meet your needs.

My office is in my home. After greeting you and inviting you into the office, we’ll take a minute to chat and create a relaxed mood. You’ll be asked to fill in a short waiver/release form with name, address, phone number – basic contact info.

The next step is your story. What are your health concerns? What is the background of those concerns? Through this I will also ask questions and ask for clarification, doing my best to make sure I understand where you are coming from. Other important information includes what your lifestyle is like, what supplements you are using now, and what medications you are using.

The first appointment can be pretty full, and sometimes the hour goes by way too fast. I try to get to asking about your food and nutrition patterns, stress levels, and activity levels and preferences, as well as taking photographs of your eyes to do an iridology assessment with.

I will usually give one to three bits of food homework and start an herbal/supplement program with you. We shape and refine your supplement program each time we meet, if warranted.

Long distance appointments can easily be done by phone or by skype.

Iridology
Iridology is the study of the iris (colored part) of the eye. Originating in the 1800s with a map of the iris developed by Dr. Ignatz Von Peczley, it is now widely practiced by medical doctors in Germany, Italy, and Russia.

The European style of iridology reveals genetic constitution. So, by looking at the iris and understanding the meaning of colors, fiber patterns, and other markings, we begin to understand where your inherited physical and emotional strengths and weaknesses are.

Knowing your strengths means we can use natural means to protect them, and knowing your weaknesses means we can take steps with food, supplements, lifestyle, stress management, and more, to support, enhance, and protect the weak areas from breaking down. You certainly may be able to avoid some of the health problems of your parents and grandparents when you understand how your body is programmed and what you can do to improve the programming.

I take photographs of your eyes, often in the first appointment, and we ‘read’ them together, usually in your second appointment.

Even if you don’t live near me, if you have a good-quality digital camera that can take extreme close-ups of your irises, we can probably do an iris assessment. You would simply take at least two photos of each eye with the eye WIDE open, email them to me, and I would set up a webinar for your next appointment. For the webinar you will log on using the webinar link I will send you – then you can see your photos online, we can talk about what I see in your photos, and you can see my pointer pointing out various things while we talk about them. Afterwards, you will receive a scanned copy of the iris assessment notes by email. There is no additional charge for any of this – it is simply billed as a standard second appointment of one-hour duration. I do require the first in-take appointment to be completed before we can do the iris assessment appointment.

Herbology
People the world over have used plants in their healing traditions since the beginning of time. Animals in the wild are also known to use plants to cure themselves of specific health problems.

High quality herbs, when wisely chosen, supply nutrients and energy to re-balance body energy and functions. The body is self-healing, given the right building blocks, and often times, herbs can provide those ‘right building blocks’.

The Chinese have the longest recorded history of using herbs. In spite of that, I focus most of my work on North American herbs.

My main supplier is Nature’s Sunshine Products. Most of their herbs are encapsulated (works well for those of us who don’t enjoy the taste of many of the herbs) and are available in 70 countries worldwide. So, even if you don’t live in North America, we can still do phone consultations, I will do the research to verify which products are available in your country, then I’ll set you up to be able to access what you need from the nearest Nature’s Sunshine Products warehouse.

Nature’s Sunshine Products maintains pharmaceutical standards (even though that’s not legally required) and GMP (good manufacturing procedures). Their purity and my expertise make a great health coaching package for you! Long-distance appointments can easily be done by phone or by skype.

Ionic Footbath (IonCleanse)

Imagine an alternative for good health that doesn’t require drugs – or pain? Imagine a treatment that uses natural energy and water to increase Chi (healing energy) in the body without painful side effects?

The IonCleanse Ionic Footbaths are the latest in personal care technologies developed by scientists and researchers as an experimental therapeutic aid for increased vitality and well being.

Sometimes we don’t recover from ailments and injuries because our bodies just don’t have enough energy to heal themselves. This is an unfortunate result of the society and world in which we live. Environmental stresses like toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and food processing and preservatives are surrounding and enveloping us, creating chronic toxemia, yet, no matter how many supplements we take or good foods we eat, it never seems to be enough.

The human body is an electrical unit unto itself. It contains a lot of water, too. When the vitality is sagging, when chronic degenerative health problems are being experienced, when there are problems healing, the electrical output is sagging, too. So, how can that be fixed? By stimulating the electrical current (often called chi or prana). This can be done with ionic footbath cleansing.

The IonCleanse Ionic Footbath unit has two parts. One part, the ‘ornament’, sits in a basin of water into which the feet, hands, or body are placed. The ornament is attached to an electrical unit. Yes, the water is being electrified with a very small current, so small most people can’t feel it, though it is measurable. This very mild electrical stimulation can stimulate the body to begin healing.

This is an in-office service that cannot be done by long-distance. Reduced rates apply when an IonCleanse Ionic Footbath is done during a regular herbal/nutritional consultation.

Vita-Flex, Color Therapy
Vitality through the reflexes – that’s what Vita-Flex means.

Stanley Burroughs is the modern-day father of Vita-Flex, a pressure point massage that is applied to the hands, feet, back, head, and face. While it bears some resemblance to reflexology, the motion used to stimulate the reflex points is a ‘rolling over the finger tip’ type of motion.

This type of stimulation is known to release crystals (often described as a gravelly sensation) at the ends of the nerves. The energy from the stimulation travels up the nerve pathway to the attached organ, feeding in healing energy.

I have used Vita-Flex to relieve problems such as headaches, digestive problems, constipation, and pain, and to facilitate easier childbirth.

Stanley Burroughs had a strong belief in combining the energy-healing benefits of Vita-Flex and Color Therapy; hence, they are often used together.

Here’s what we know about color. Each color has its own wavelength or energy pattern. We absorb light energy. (I often tease that we are really half plant.) Different wavelengths of light have effects on different organs. This is the same reason medications work on different organs. The energy created by the chemistry of the drug affects organs with a specific energy wavelength. So it is with all things energetic, be they herbs, vitamins, minerals, foods, or thoughts. When the correct color of light is shone on the area of the body that is in need of a boost, the energy is absorbed and aids in healing.

So, what kind of a powerful benefit could you receive from Vita-Flex combined with Color Therapy?

This is an in-office service that cannot be done by long-distance.

Vital Vision Artery Stiffness Scan
The Vital Vision Artery Stiffness Scan is a non-invasive screening tool that shows how much of an arterial risk a person may have. When arteries become stiff they are usually building up plaque which makes them narrower and increases the risk of stroke and heart attack. By doing screens annually for people who have not displayed any risk previously, and more often with people who are at increased risk or have had cardio-vascular problems, corrective dietary and supplemental action can be taken to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular incidents happening. The test takes about 10 minutes to perform. Each client receives a printed report of the findings, and as a natural wellness coach I will make suggestions for diet, lifestyle, and supplement usage. Retesting is done on an as needed basis.

Please contact Judith to book your appointment.

Zyto
Zyto Compass is a bio-energy scanner that provides stimuli and gathers information about body energy to assess what the body needs right now. In a scan the client’s hand rests on a sensor that looks like a large computer mouse. The sensor sends impulses to the person’s body, reads the electrical and chemical responses from 76 biochemical markers, analyzes them, and then compares the data to energy scans of nutritional supplements stored in its database, to select the supplements that most closely match the requirements of the body.

The result is a graphic showing how many of the 76 markers are ‘out of zone’, meaning they need support based on the individual’s own energies, and a list of supplements (usually 3 – 5 supplements) that would be the most beneficial.This technology is also used in medicine and has been shown to be 93% accurate in its findings. It takes only 6 – 8 minutes to complete a scan.

It is painless, done with all clothes on, and can be done on children and people with implanted electronic devices and transplanted organs.

How accurate is it? When I scan myself, knowing how I am feeling that day and what supplements I think I need, the Compass comes out with very similar recommendations!

Muscle Testing (Nutritional Kinesiology, bio-Kinesiology)
Our bodies are highly electrical. The electricity we generate in every cell must circulate in very specific pathways. Lack of nutrients, elevated stress, physical illness, and an abused body can all impair the electrical circulation.

Muscle testing is a simple, non-invasive way of measuring the electrical current. We can test it in the body as a whole, in organs, and as it relates to nutrient and stress levels. Piecing together the strong and weak results gives us a picture of what needs support, why it needs support, and how to support it best.

This is an in-office service that cannot be done by long-distance.

Eudamonia Hair and Blood Testing
As a holistic nutritionist I have access to Eudamonia, a company that offers holistic hair testing and blood testing. The selection of blood tests includes Vitamin D, Fatty Acid Profile, IgG food sensitivity, and Candida.

Each testing kit comes with instructions, everything you need to take a proper sample, and a prepaid mailer to send your sample in to the lab. It takes 1 – 2 weeks for results to come back to me.

  • Hair testing: analyses for 45 essential and toxic elements.
  • The Fatty Acid Panel measures Omega 3, 6, unsaturated, saturated, trans fats, omega 3 index, omega 3 whole blood score, and AA:EPA ratio.
  • Food sensitivity panels to choose from: 120 foods, 200 foods, 160 vegetarian foods; and any specific food (from ‘the list’) can be added to the panel for a nominal fee.
  • Candida: checks for Candida in the blood.

Test kits can be sent anywhere in Canada. An office appointment is not necessary. All clients do need to find someone to do their finger-poking for the blood tests as I am not licensed to do invasive therapies.
