Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns – from pediatric to geriatric, from acute to chronic illness and from the physical to the psychological. In most cases, you will be treated using a combination of naturopathic modalities tailored to you and your health concerns. These treatments include:
- Clinical nutrition
- Botanical medicine
- Homeopathic medicine
- Traditional Chinese medicine / Acupuncture
- Preventative medicine
- B12 shots
Clinical nutrition examines the relationship between diet and health. Special diets, food elimination, variations in dietary habits or the use of nutritional supplements may be recommended.
The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginning of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology. The use of herbs in many forms: teas, tinctures, or capsules are used for their healing effects and are useful in treating many conditions such as menopause, diabetes, migraines, colds, flu, arthritis, and many more.
Homeopathic remedies are minute dilutions of plant, animal and mineral substances designed to stimulate the body’s “vital force” and strengthen its innate ability to heal. This modality is safe for infants, children and pregnant women.
Traditional Chinese Medicine / Acupuncture
Based on balancing the flow of Chi (energy) through meridian pathways under the skin, Chinese medicine includes the use of herbs and acupuncture to regulate and release Chi in order to bring the body into balance. This type of therapy is very effective for all types of pain, digestive disorders, infertility and many more conditions.
Naturopathic doctors address all aspects of a person’s life, identifying and addressing the impact that stress and life events have on a patient’s health and assisting patients to make effective lifestyle choices.
A comprehensive assessment of an individual’s health risks including diet, exercise, stress and genetic susceptibilities in order to develop preventative health protocols to reduce risk and prevent illness.
Vitamin B12 is very important for the nervous system, energy and memory. B12 Shots are very helpful for those individuals who do not absorb vitamins well through their digestive system. This is especially the case with celiac and inflammatory bowel disorders and for those over 50 years old. As people get older the stomach’s acid naturally decreases thus decreasing Vitamin B12 absorption.
