I have worked with Eric for acupuncture treatment for several years.  First, he is professional, understanding and compassionate, which always puts me at ease.  He is a good listener and asks insightful questions that make me really stop and think about my wellbeing.  As far as the treatment themselves go, I always leave feeling refreshed and rejuvinated.  His long term treatment of a chronic injury resulted in healing after many months.

I am in such appreciation of Essential Medicina. Both Adrenal Essence and Mind’s Eye have been cultivated and created with so much thought, care, and intelligence. That they also taste excelente is further evidence of the loving alchemy that birthed them.

My husband and I stepped into a deeply healing period of time under the guidance of Dr. Baumgartner’s care. He brings together the vision of Chinese medicine and functional medicine to support the body to return to its natural state of balance in a clear and concise manner.  We both stepped into this time of restoration and returning to the rhythms of nature. Doing this work as a couple felt like we were able to revive our entire life to a new level of vitality. Dr. Baumgartner’s approach was gentle, yet stern and extremely precise.  www.corazonhealingarts.com

My favorite way to use Essential Medicina is at the start of my day. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do enjoy waking up to a warm, nourishing elixir. I stir a heaping teaspoon of Medicina in a cup of hot water with either a few drops of stevia or a 1/2 teaspoon of honey. Then I top it off with steamed hemp milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It’s not too strong nor too light. I find it’s the perfect companion to my morning, whether I’m reading on the porch or waking up with yoga. Yummmmmm.  jasonmraz.com

Eric helped me with some hormone issues that had been a problem for many years causing discomfort in my short cycle. He helped regulate it back to normal with the Adrenal program and bioidentical progesterone in about 6 weeks. My energy levels have improved a lot though it takes a while to heal the adrenals completely and get back to optimum weight. He’s always very caring and good to talk to and knowledgable about my health. Even through the remote calls I felt like he was a 100% present. I loved the adrenal program, conference calls but the one on one attention was really helpful to regain my balance. I’d been guessing for so long at what was going on and didn’t know what to do, and it was a relief to do the saliva testing and find out for sure what was going on and treat it objectively.
I recommend Eric to all my friends!

After a session with Eric, I feel physically restored, mentally clear and emotionally balanced – the shift is dramatic. He is meticulous, patient, intuitive and undeniably gifted in his craft. Eric is a doctor in the truest sense of the word, and I am so grateful to have access to a practitioner of his excellence.

I feel like my entire body starts doing the can-can when I use the Essential Medicina Adrenal Essence formula in my smoothies! It is simultaneously nourishing, restoring and energizing – incredible! I’m highly sensitive to caffeine so finding something that gives me energy and stamina without making me jittery is such a gift. You must try this stuff, it’s magic.

Using the Essential Medicina adrenal program steadily over the course of six months has brought back vitality, enthusiasm and inspiration into every cell in my body. Before I began I felt sluggish, constantly exhausted and mentally foggy – no matter how clean my diet was or how much exercise I got. After using the herbs, I have more energy than I know what to do with – and am pouring it into creative projects, my own business and living a life I love and now have the energy to pursue. www.JonMarro.com
