I consulted with David Shaw because I was looking for a herbal solution in dealing with long term health issues. During my consultation with David, I found him to be very knowledgeable, supportive, easy to talk to, and non-judgmental. He listened carefully to my concerns and offered a treatment plan which included dietary changes, a tincture and a tea formula. After making the dietary changes and taking the recommended tincture and tea for several months my symptoms have alleviated. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is wanting to explore a (w)holistic approach using herbs.
I moved to Victoria in January and happened to stop in to see David a few weeks after I arrived, in an attempt to get help addressing some nagging symptoms that I was experiencing. These symptoms had been bothering me for several months at this point and although I had tried several other recommended options, nothing had been of any significant help. David patiently listened to all of my concerns, asked me a number of questions and was able to send me home with something that relieved my symptoms within a few days. I returned a couple of weeks after my initial visit to get help with a separate, unrelated issue. David once again took the time to really listen to what was going on and after our consultation, created a treatment for me that worked within hours. He also followed up later that day on some points that had come up during our consultation that concerned him and he felt they required further attention. I was really impressed that he did that. I won’t hesitate to return to see David for any concerns or future issues I may have and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for exceptional care.
What an incredible find in Victoria. My wife and I had some physical stress from being overworked and exhausted from travel and a friend recommended reaching out to David from Errant. We both were quickly on the mend with remedies and sent home with tinctures that have greatly improved our health and conditions. The shop is beautiful and the vibe is loving and healing. David is amazing and extremely knowledgeable.and I highly recommend Errant to anyone who wants a holistic natural approach to health and wellness.
