Mariellen and Bruce Bios
Mariellen L. Kristol received her Acupuncture Physician, and Doctor of Oriental Medicine Training in Gainesville, Florida. She integrates her knowledge of Chinese Herbology, North American Herbs, Amazon Herbs, and therapeutic grade essential oils into a system of energy medicine that is practical and effective for professionals.
She lectures extensively throughout the United States on the value of herbs for people and for animals. Mariellen notes that it is common to perceive our body as a combination of isolated parts rather than as a living, breathing, adaptive, continually growing organism. As she focuses on our knowledge base on these unique botanicals, and expands participants’ knowledge and consciousness, she assists them in recognizing how our bodies are highly integrated, changing daily, and how the herbs are instrumental in the healing process.
Mariellen teaches how we each have an innate intelligence that orchestrates this complex physiology to work together. To develop optimal performance, she teaches how it’s useful to nourish, maintain or rebuild all systems of the body at once. The body systems she addresses are the Reproductive / Endocrine, Urinary / Bladder, Circulatory, Muscular-Skeletal, Lymphatic / Immune, Nervous, Respiratory, and Digestive. The outcome of Mariellen’s lectures is that participants understand the major role of each of the body’s systems, and how the Amazon Herbs and Chinese Herbs support these systems.
