Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity

-- John Ruskin




"Having lived 6 years in Japan, I consider myself a good judge of Asian style alternative medical practitioners, and I can say with confidence that Lisl is on the way to the top of her field.  I am so happy to have found someone with her skills here."

"I have experienced reflexology and other trigger-point therapies, but how effective could ear (auricular) stimulation be, I wondered.  But in just 20 minutes my chronic fatigue symptoms- irritable bowel, brain fog (cognitive sensory impairment), and tissue stiffness, among other things- decreased considerably, and the herbal treatments since then appear to be reinforcing even those gains." -Mark G., Farmington (July, 2002)

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 1999 and sought conventional treatment via an internist.  After several years of steroid treatments with little to no success, I decided to seek out a holistic approach.  At the time I sought her out, I had been virtually house bound for 3-4 months by a bout of colitis.  A few short weeks after meeting Lisl, taking her suggested herbs and using auriculotherapy, I began to experience healing.  I was in full remission within 4-6 weeks of starting treatments. I was able to leave the house again, and care for my family.  I have remained in remission for over 5 years.  Lisl's approach is to work with the client to not just heal the body, but the mind, soul and spirit as well.  Her compassion and knowledge were a tremendous help to me and she has given me insight into daily living in treating my disease.  Thanks isn't enough.

I just wanted to thank you again for helping me overcome extreme pain from my spinal stenosis condition, as well as a pending major back surgery which I was able to cancel. Within a few months of your auricular therapy, utilizing ear seeds and Chinese herbal pills, I had attained what orthopedic and neurological physicians were not able to accomplish – stabilization of my condition. Working with you was great!  Best wishes, Leonard  R. -South Windsor, Connecticut

Having had two bone density tests show continued gradual loss of bone, my G.P. and my Gynecologist urged me to go on one of the "bone building" drugs. Research and anecdotal stories from friends led to a decision against taking such medications. I turned to Lisl for help in addressing my bone loss problem. After making a full assessment of my health and lifestyle, she made recommendations of herbal supplements and dietary changes. Two years later my bone density test showed that my bones had stabilized and there had been no further loss. I look forward to continuing to work with Lisl and restoring my bone health. -Sharon L. Farmington, CT

Lisl is an amazing healer, herbalist and teacher.  She is very professional and knows exactly how to help her clients overcome their issues, whether they are physical or emotional.  Her special connection to the plant and tree kingdom shines through in all she does.  Anyone who is lucky enough to know her is blessed by her loving energy. -Barb P.; Torrington, CT

Lovely, thanks so much for such an interesting and complete picture of this sacred tree (shrub) which I have planted in my backyard to be the center of a small permaculture "guild." I appreciate your research. Blessings, Vicki Noble
