Personal note from Jean-Francois

Phyto (prounouned Fyto) means plant and phytoalchemy refers to my passion and calling in using plant medicines to transform illness into well-being.

In addition to the Phytoalchemy self transformation coaching I offer, I also provide nutritional consultations to my patients on what are the best vitamins, minerals, plant medicines and enzymes for them to use to heal chronic ailments and to boost and optimize their health and well-being.

Nervous system illness, e.g., Stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Digestive system illness, e.g., IBS, diverticulitis, Crohns.

Immune and Bone system illness, e.g., Athritis, Food allergies, MS and chronic low immunity and infections.

Metabolic illness, e.g., Weight gain etc.
