Health Thyme opens alternative medical office in Torrington

TORRINGTON – There’s something brewing at the Goshen Enterprise Center – and it just may save your life. ‘
Health Thyme, an integrative and complementary health and wellness office, bridges natural remedies with Western medicine, according to owner Nona Hubbard-
Kindsvater.
“(I) utilize easy, economical and effective methods to help reverse chronic illnesses,” Hubbard-Kindsvater said. “These methods are developed on natural processes with evidence-based science backed by thousands of scientific studies and are used by medical institutions across the nation.”
Integrative and complementary medicine works with your physician or specialist and results in a co-treatment protocol, she said.
Hubbard-Kindsvater used the common practice of drinking coffee as an example.
“We know people drink coffee. Why? Because it gives you energy. Another example is taking ginger for an upset stomach. It’s a physiological response to a botanical source – and here at Health Thyme, I’m taking it back to that,” she explained.
Hubbard-Kindsvater creates individualized healing plans with the intention of helping improve the body’s own healing functions; thus allowing the body to operate at an optimal level.
“It is not difficult to obtain results, and you don’t have to change your entire lifestyle to accomplish it,” she said. “Small changes over time equal big results long-term. Many people see results in a very short period of time.”
Hubbard-Kindsvater prefers a positive perspective leading to fast results and further motivation rather than a negative one that deprives and leaves a void. Health is a process, not an event, she said.
Hubbard-Kindsvater grew up nearby, in Bayard, Neb.
“I left the area for about 30 years, and I now have the privilege of being back and bringing a new way to look at healthcare,” she said.
Hubbard-Kindsvater founded Health Thyme following her own battle with a crippling, chronic illness. After the medical field gave up on her, she started a journey of discovery and recovery that grew into a Complementary and Alternative Medicine degree, including Master Medical Herbalist, Clinical Aromatherapy and Holistic Nutrition Practitioner from the American College of Healthcare Sciences. She has more than 10 years of experience in her field and specializes in complex health issues.
“I started listening to other people who have had similar experiences, and decided to help people,” she said. “What I learned through my own experience in combination with my degree … that is the passion I bring to this. I help my clients find their ‘why’.”
Health Thyme offers several programs, including Defeating Diabetes, Cancer Care Initiative, Abolishing Autoimmune, Depression, Anxiety and PTSD, Addiction Recovery, Get Back to Sleep, Witchy Woman - How to Feel Like Yourself Again, Man Up - Men’s Health, Healthy Weight and more. Hubbard-Kindsvater will also host a diabetes and cancer care class in the future.
“It’s cost-effective,” Hubbard-Kindsvater said. Office visits range from $35 to $90, depending on condition complexity. The individual “program of care” plans cost approximately $2-$5 per day.
“This is for everyone, whether it’s a child’s chronic sickness, someone’s general fatigue, a cold or flu or an individual just feels ‘off’,” she said. “Ultimately, (I) help put health back in the hands of the patient.
“Goshen County Economic Development Corporation has gone far beyond the ‘extra mile’ to encourage and develop Health Thyme,” Hubbard-Kindsvater continued. “Their incubator office program gave Health Thyme the opportunity to continue to develop and expand. Come by 110 W. 22nd Ave, Lower Level on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a free consultation.”
Hubbard-Kindsvater has an office in Scottsbluff, Neb. by appointment only. Residents can call (307) 338-0293 to make an appointment. Health Thyme also offers natural products, free consultations and information at Torrington Farmers’ Markets, from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursdays at City Park.
