Naturopathic medicine uses alternative medicine techniques to restore your health and vitality. The main principles of naturopathic medicine are to use safe and effective tools to bring the body back to balance, find the root cause of the disease, teach the patient so they can learn to best take care of their self, treat the whole person, and do no harm.
Naturopathic medicine has a broad scope of practice ranging from doctors who use a lot of energy medicine to those who focus on a functional biochemical approach. I tend to fall into the latter, using objective lab testing and clinical evaluation to assess what is going on. The treatment options that I use include nutrition, herbal medicine, mind body techniques, and sleep optimization strategies.
Using this approach and these techniques, I have seen remarkable results to heal gastrointestinal issues (such as IBS, IBD, heart burn, constipation, diarrhea, etc), hormonal imbalances (such as thyroid and adrenal issues, PMS, menopausal symptoms, and infertility), weak immunity or autoimmune conditions, and daily complaints of fatigue and poor sleep.
While natural health principles can be applied at any age, I do not treat people under 18 years of age.
