Why Naturopathic Medicine?
Our approach includes establishing the fundamentals of health, including nutritious food, fresh air, clean water, exercise, good sleep, and happiness. We believe that once the fundamentals of health are established, the body can function optimally.
Our treatments include nutrition, counseling, herbal medicine, therapeutic use of nutrient supplements, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, and stress reduction. We may recommend pharmaceutical medications when necessary and can effectively integrate them with natural therapies. Our treatments are effective in treating a wide variety of conditions without the need for additional intervention.
We can serve as your primary care doctor but are also able to function within an integrated framework, complementing the treatments used by other members of your health care team. The result is a patient-centered approach that strives to provide the most appropriate treatment for you as an individual.
We always recommend what we feel is the best treatment modality but will respect your individual autonomy in making your own educated medical decisions.
Our comprehensive approach to your health takes time, which is why first office visits are 80 minutes long and return office visits are 50 minutes long. You will be with the doctor for the entire time.
