Naturopathic Care For The Whole Family
Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention and healing with therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. Naturopathic medicine always aims to start with the least invasive treatments only moving on to more invasive methods as needed.
I have seen many patients that have had the root cause of their illness overlooked simply because of an existing diagnosis, quick and easy pharmaceutical ‘fix’, or simply due to lack of listening on the part of their practitioner.
My approach allows us to dig deeper and identify the specific-to-you factors influencing your health, such as clinical assessment and conventional and functional lab testing.
Then, we get to bring in multiple modalities to guide you and/or your child’s journey to wellness, including but not limited to:

What Other Have To Say

Naturopathic medicine is the process of identifying and treating illness by supporting the body’s innate ability to heal thyself. During the healing process, a Naturopathic doctor will educate the patient about their illness and how their healing may occur. Insert image of naturopathic tenets.
Naturopathic doctor’s, like myself, spend 4 years in a rigorous post-bachelors doctoral program studying medicine. Insert image comparing MD ND programs.
