I’d love to introduce you to a very smart businesswoman and mother- Andrea Telfer-Karbo of “The Remedy” in Martinez.
Interview with Andrea Telfer-Karbo
“Hi everybody, I was introduced to Standard Process by my chiropractor, who was a huge fan though I was only 8 years old at the time. Now, as a grown-up nurse practitioner that focuses on general medicine and family care, I’ve used Standard Process and Medi Herb for several years. My patients range in age from 1-97 years old. I work heavily with inflammatory disorders and anything dealing with gut health- Fibromyalgia, CFS, IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Colitis, and hormonal issues.
Up until COVID 19, I had a flourishing practice with a 2-month waiting list. My entire team have kids-and we haven’t had anywhere to take them. Thankfully, we’ve been able to keep busy with telehealth. I have an active Instagram page and for me, Instagram works better than Facebook. My practice is extremely referral based – about 80-90% of our practice is built on referrals and results.
Our staff including an Lac/PhD in Chinese Medicine, ND, Holistic Nutritionist, Transformative Coach, and Nurse Practitioner have the combined goal of bridging traditional with functional medicine by using science and clinical research. It’s Incredible-we check in with each other on difficult cases. We’re don’t believe in being solo practitioners- you’ve got to build the support into your system or you’ll burn out. We’re open to more people on our team we don’t have a chiropractor just yet-just in case any of you are looking….
I’m very familiar with medications, what they do, can prescribe them when needed, and know which herbs are complementary to the medications. This is a huge plus.
Two of my top-selling supplements are Medi Herb Ashwagandha Complex and Standard Process Zypan. I do use Nutrition Response Muscle Testing, and how you’re taught to always palpate Enzyme Points (General Enzyme & HCL). I’ve found that if you can’t “clear” those enzyme points with either Zypan or Multizyme, then you need to add Ashwaganda Complex, and it works like a charm! It’s that gut/brain axis support that completes what’s missing.
Standard Process Cod Liver Oil-is another top seller that I feel everyone should have. It’s my favorite fat-soluble multivitamin.
A recent success story is a 50-year-old female patient with horrible bloating, lower abdominal pain, and just never felt normal. With just a short time on Zypan, Enzycore, Mega Spore Biotic, and AF Betafood, and it’s gone!”
Thank you so very much for your contribution Andrea, your practice is indeed a gift- and inspiration to all of us!
I can’t wait until you try our new GI Stability which will likely provide that final missing link for all of your digestive patients. We’ve only had it since June 1st and it’s already a national best-seller! How cool is that?
