Is Naturopathic Medicine Right for You?

Is Naturopathic Medicine Right for You?

Naturopathic medicine is individualized medicine that can help people who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic health conditions. It is also an excellent choice for people looking to live healthier and prevent illness.

Naturopathic medicine takes an holistic approach to patient care that focuses on listening and collaborative decision making. It looks to identify the root cause of the health imbalance and then treat with natural therapies based on modern evidence-based knowledge and traditional forms of medicine.

Naturopathic Medicine is a Good Fit for You if:

  • You want time to have your concerns heard and your questions answered.  Appointments with me are generally between 30 and 60 minutes in length.
  • You want to be treated as more than just a disease, but as a whole person.
  • You want to play an active role in the decisions surrounding your own health care.
  • You want to determine and treat the root cause of your symptoms.
  • You would like to try natural treatments (such as dietary changes, herbs, acupuncture) and avoid unnecessary side effects.

The Guiding Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

My Practice

I have a general family practice with a special interest in women’s health, digestive issues, and anxiety and depression. I help people at any point in their lifespan (from pre-natal to geriatric) feel their best.

Most commonly I see people dealing with chronic health conditions, but I like to remind people that naturopathic medicine can help with acute conditions like colds and flus, and is also an excellent fit for those trying to maintain their health and prevent illness in the future.

Below is a list of the most common conditions that I treat. If you don’t see the condition you are experiencing, no need to fret: contact me to see if Naturopathic Medicine would be a good fit for you.
