Naturopathic Practice

Naturopathic Medicine

As a Naturopathic Doctor I appreciate that people are more than a collection of individual parts. Your body works together mentally, physically, and emotionally, and it takes time to understand all the pieces influencing your individual health. You live in your body every day and know it best so I listen and learn from you to guide my treatment. I uphold our relationship as one of mutual learning and sharing as we seek the root cause of your health issues.  Symptoms arise when there is an imbalance in the factors that create health and my goal is to help you restore balance in your life, physically and emotionally. We investigate the imbalances together through a thorough discussion of your current health, past health issues, your diet and lifestyle, and I perform physical exams and lab tests as necessary. Naturopathic Medicine is about much more than a doctor writing a prescription. The care involves you. Treatments are holistic and individualized with your healing at the core, using herbal medicine, homeopathy, and nutrition.
