Our philosophy is based on the principles of holism which addresses the whole person in achieving optimum health. In keeping with our name, we address the body, mind and spirit realizing that all three aspects greatly affect our physical health and Brio (vitality). Rather than just focusing on specific anatomical areas we consider the whole person as well as environmental factors as they relate to health. We are also dedicated to creating holistic, natural and organic products to satisfy the needs of our environmentally conscious clients.
Utilizing the art of iridology we seek to painlessly see the state of body organs so as to get to the bottom of health problems instead of treating symptoms as they manifest. The Brio Holistics health care client is encouraged to be proactive and helped to take responsibility for their health and well being. They are helped to make lifestyle modifications to achieve the highest level of well-being possible.
Renee Davenport is a Master Herbalist, Clinical Iridologist, Detoxification Specialist, and IIPA certified comprehensive Iridologist who is currently continuing the study of holistic health and nutrition. She has worked in the medical field for over 24 years. Her work includes personally assisting Dr. Jennie Kline, a demanding Research Scientist who proudly maintained the highest attention to detail at The Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene in the department of Epidemiology of Developmental Brain Disorders and Columbia University in the department of Epidemiology. She held the titles of Research Assistant, Research Technician, Administrative Assistant and was an integral part of the small research team. It is with a great deal of fondness that she remembers the special time spent and precious lessons learned as she assisted Dr. Jennie Kline.
When a severe stubborn bout of Psoriasis found no progress with medical doctors Renee took her health into her own hands doing research and choosing remedies that were herbal and natural. As she crafted her own tinctures, capsules, soaps, salts and poultices to benefit her condition a love affair with herbal and natural remedies ensued.
In 2008 she decided to "legalize" the union by becoming a Master Herbalist. She received her MH certification in May 2010 from the Global College of Natural Medicine under the tutelage of Dr. Heather Johnstone and her staff of professional assistants. Brio Holistics, LLC was born in February 2011. In December 2010 she began Clinical Iridology studies with Judy & Harvey Vedder at the New York Center for Iridology in New York City. Certification was received in March of 2012. Iridology has been Renee's passion ever since her first iris reading at age 20.
One day in 2012 Renee stumbled upon an iridology video by Dr. Robert Morse, Intrigued because he was an iridologist and an herbalist she listened with great interest. During the video he mentioned his book, video's, school and herbs. She purchased the book and read it cover to cover. She tried the herbs and loved them, watched the videos and learned a great deal and corresponded with many of his students and trained practitioners.
Dr. Morse has a very kind nature, genuinely cares about the well-being of people and is very knowledgeable in his field. He also attracts some of the kindest, most helpful, passionate and genuine people you would want to know. All of these are factors which aided in the decision to become a detoxification specialist although already practicing.
