From Dr. Deb…
A Bit About Me
My name is Deborahe Prock, Naturopathic Practitioner, AKA Dr. Deb; and I am passionate about healing! Since 1993, I have embraced my path as Healer and Teacher. Always maintaining a humble attitude of student as well as healer, my senses are always open to healing possibilities.
I am my own best testimony: after surviving three separate types of cancer, the various treatments, and some permanent effects of those treatments, I brought myself back to health and vitality using some modern medicine in conjunction with the wisdom I gained becoming a Master Herbalist. Through my experiences, I have gained extraordinary insight into how to enable individuals to create their own wellness. I feel honored to be able to help and encourage others toward their goal of well-being.
When I first began working as a natural healer, all of my visits were house calls…I embraced the idea of the traveling “barefoot doctors”, of the ancient “medicine woman”, and of “simpling”. A “barefoot doctor” traveled from village to village learning, healing, and dispensing knowledge gained in the field regarding health. We have heard about the medicine women of many different cultures who carefully passed their wisdom of the healing and nutritional powers of plants down through the ages. The art of growing and using herbs for medicine is traditionally called “simpling” however I take the notion a step farther: I believe that less is best when it comes to using herbs to improve health, so I keep my herbals blends as simple as possible to maintain their effectiveness. Often, taking 1 or 2 of the correct herbs is much more effective than taking 6 or 8 of the almost correct herbs.
As my practice has grown and thrived, my traveling days are fewer and you can usually find me at my office. Seeing clients every day has allowed me to gain even more knowledge based on direct feedback from my clients. I have learned that what works for one client may not work for another client. Each individual has their own herbal needs and I am pleased to be able to offer personalized herbal blends if needed. We prepare our herbs in small batches thereby ensuring freshness and quality. Nothing lingers on our shelves…no time to grow stale!
All of my remedies are created with the intention of healing and I carefully screen my herb suppliers. I always want to know where the herbs are from, how they have been prepared and stored, as well as the intention they were harvested with. I provide far too many remedies to be able to grow the herbs myself anymore. Most of the herbs I use in my remedies are harvested with the intention to heal. I do not use any herbs in my remedies that I would not use for my family or for our pets.
I could not keep up with the demand for my herbal remedies by myself, so here I must give credit to my husband and helpmate, Rickey, and to my wonderful assistant, Janise, for their dedication and hard work. Each morning, before we begin working with the herbs, we thank God for the opportunity to provide healing and we ask for His blessing.
Although modern living has created many degrees of separation between people and our natural world, I believe there are benefits to be had by blending the best of both modern medicine & natural medicine, thereby lessening the space between these applications: integrative medicine. Many of us find benefits from the use of herbal remedies as well as prescription medications! I openly and happily work with traditional doctors in order to help clients thrive.
My passion is healing & teaching and not-so-much about the money-making involved, so don’t be surprised at how reasonable my prices are. If I didn’t have to make a living, I would not charge for my services at all! Giving people what they honestly need and are able to afford is my creed.
Please check back often and freely explore this website! Read much in your quest for knowledge and well-being! I am always available for your questions and/or comments.

In Praise of Dr. Deb
Dr. Deb has changed the lives of many people and animals from Louisiana’s New Orleans disaster to Northern California’s El Dorado hills where her skills are well-known in Placerville and on to Lake Tahoe and anywhere else she is needed. Dr. Deb’s talented and insightful diagnoses are legendary; her treatments heal mind and body. Here are a few testimonials written by humans, but if animals could write there would be just as many testimonials of how she save them.
Dr. Deb, my touchstone, my life coach, my friend, my sister
It was in the fall that I met Dr. Deb. I had just spent July and August feeling hopeless about my life. In June I had contracted Diverticulitis and had been hospitalized. With my colon fused to my uterus I was under siege and facing an operation to take both out. Worse still, I had been told that there was absolutely nothing I could do to prevent another attack; that I would not be able to be healed until the operation. Enter Dr. Deb and her footbath.
I will never forget meeting her; she looked at me and said for me not to worry that she could fix the fused uterus and colon and that I would be well soon. It was a simple regimen – Marshmallow Root and a uterus cleanse, but within days I was no longer leaking poison from the colon. Right there and then I became a believer in homeopathic medicine.
My health had never been perfect – born with pneumonia, cord wrapped around my next six times – lucky, lucky to be alive at all. As I reached age six my parents were advised that it was crucial to get me to a dryer climate (Indiana was where we lived then). Although I did not contract tuberculosis as the doctors had feared, I did have pneumonia every year of my life until age 25 when I had my tonsils removed. After that it was bronchitis every year until the year I met Dr. Deb. We worked on getting my lungs and liver in good shape with tinctures and teas and homeopathic remedies and the result was greatly reduced instances of respiratory ailments. Where once I had bronchitis two or three times a year after Dr. Deb took over I sometimes went more than a year without being sick at all.
Last year I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Deb to cure leukemia that I had somehow contracted. It was the kids and young adult kind; the kind that could not have been cured today except for the advent of stem cell research. I was diagnosed with a chromosome jump which left my white blood cells impaired. I had a bold test that left the hospital doctors scrambling to get me in for a blood transfusion to add platelets. They wanted me to stay for a month. But, I was all set to leave the hospital and undertake a homeopathic regimen from Dr. Deb. Matter of fact, I left the hospital knowing that I could rely on Dr. Deb to help me through the nightmare. Instead, she helped me to see the value of integrative medicine – using my health care insurance along with tinctures, lights, and herbs as a way to control the cancer.
I am well now – in complete remission – and still under Dr. Deb’s care because I trust her and I know that I am in good hands. Yes, she is insightful. She studies constantly to add to her knowledge store. Yes, she is empathic. But at the same time she is honest; she tells her clients the truth about their health. Yes, she is knowledgeable, amazingly so. She truly believes that the world will be a better place when we learn to combine the worlds of pharmaceutical medicine with the time-honored tradition of herbal medicine. She is the best of both of these worlds and embraces both whole-heartedly. She believes she can make a difference helping one person at a time and ask anyone – she does make a difference.
I recommend her to anyone who needs medical or psychological assistance – there is no greater gift on this earth than the gift of Dr. Deb.
“I have been a fan of Dr. Deb for 4 years and refer new people to her all the time, who find her amazingly awesome.
There are no pretenses, just genuine caring, in supporting people to live healthier life styles and learning how to be responsible for their own health.
It is evident that her first priority in not about money or herself but using her gifts to help others.
We are so fortunate to have Dr. Deb in our community helping not only people but our animals as well.”
New Changes for wording on labels
Over the next months you will see some changes on the Website for labeling on my products. I just attended a very good conference in Oregon that brought up some very valid points on the wording for labels. The FDA makes some very valid points on the verbiage that I myself have on my labels. Of course I have the FDA statement, but that is generic and I want to be sure that all labels are intended for health and not misleading.
*This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure any disease or illness. If medical conditions are present or become present, consultation with a qualified health care professional is advised.
I talked with some herbalists while I was there and heard some stories of people that had stopped taking traditional medicine due to the fact that they believed an herbal supplement would cure their condition. My advice has always been before stopping any medication you should discuss this with a physician. I also add to that statement that if you are on traditional medications you need to speak to a qualified herbalist to discuss interactions.
We all have choices in our health to make, of course as an herbalist I believe in “First Do No Harm”, so I will often use herbs to heal the body. As a cancer survivor I will be the first to also stand behind integrating medicine with traditional physicians.
With all the information out on the Internet unfortunately the wording that is in many of the natural products may be misleading to many people with serious conditions. Remember each of us is unique so having a consult with a practitioner or herbalist is important versus relying on the internet for information. Cancer and Heart disease would be in that category of course.
I stand by the premise that we do not live in a world where we can be all holistic all the time, so being in contact with a trained herbalist to help you understand where that illness may cross the line from when it would be safe to nourish the body to regain healthy balance, and when you might best be treated by a physician is important.
Understanding when herbal remedies may be appropriate I think is always important. So I just wanted to put a reminder on here that I welcome emails to answer your questions and see if I can help you to make better choices for your health. Drdeb2002@gmail.com
