Naturopathic Medicine focuses on the individual as a whole, including mind, body, emotional status and the environment. Natural therapies are implemented to achieve health toward the highest good of the individual.
The philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine is based on the following six principles:
- First Do No Harm
- The Healing Power of Nature
- Identify and Treat the Cause
- Treat the Whole Person
- Doctor as Teacher
In keeping with these principles, the specific services we offer include:
Clinical Nutrition is the foundation of naturopathic medicine, including whole-foods diet, whole-food based nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and much more.
Botanical Medicine involves the use of plants or constituents of particular plants to heal or prevent illness.
Homeopathy Remedies can be used to healillness or disease alone or in combination with nutrition and botanicals, and other modalities.
Physical Medicine includes heat and cold treatments, far infrared sauna, hydrotherapy, ultrasound, electrical impulses, cranio-sacral technique, massage and therapeutic exercise.
Counseling and Lifestyle (Stress) Modification may be necessary in order for healing to take place because mental and emotional imbalances may present obstacles in treatment.
Environmental Detoxification periodically is critical for maintaining health and healing from illness. We are bombarded daily from air pollution, contaminated water, pesticides, radiation, genetically modified foods, and so much more.
