New Patients

Call to set up a free 10-minute consultation so we may evaluate how we can help you. This time allows us to hear your concerns and set you up for your nutritional and herbal medicine consultation. 


Patients who are existing patients or who receive a nutritional consultation from Dr. Linda or Dr. Viveka can open up a Patient Direct account and order their Standard Process and Medi-Herb supplements directly.



Step 1: Complete application at standardprocess.com. You will need to enter a unique code before completing the application form.  Please call us to get the code for Dr. Linda or for Dr. Viveka, whomever your practitioner is. If you are new to us, please set up an initial consultation appointment. 

Step 2: Go to standardprocess.com and click on “Patient Direct” in the top navigation bar to begin the Patient Direct registration. If you like you can watch the instructional video that is available to you.


Step 3: Standard Process will send us an email letting us know you have applied for an account.

You will be sent an email with shipping confirmation, which includes tracking information, or you can log into their Patient Direct accounts on the Standard Process website and view previous orders.


Note: Please take care when ordering your products as Standard Process will not accept returns once the product has left their facility and we will not be able to return them for you. This is because Standard Process cannot re-sell any products they ship out as they would not be able to vouch for their not have being tampered with or damaged. And this is also to protect you, the customer, as you would not want to receive a previously returned product that you did not know the true history of. Standard Process takes great care to be fully accountable and transparent about their product manufacturing from seed to supplement, which is why you can trust their products.


As always, you will be able to purchase products from us here in our office. We may need advance notice in order to make sure we have what you need in stock. Typically we will discuss what you need at our visits, and we will know to have those products on hand as much as possible.
