Naturopathic Physicians empahasize the use of diet, exercise, nutritional supplements, homeopathy, physical medicine, and herbal therapies to prevent disease and promote wellness with few or no side effects. A licensed Naturopathic physician in United States attends accredited four-year graduate level Naturopathic medical school to become primary-care practitioner. They receive the same basic training as an MD or DO, and also study clinical nutrition, physical medicine, psychology, homeopathic and botanical medicine.
How is Naturopathic medicine different from conventional medicine?
While conventional relies on “quick fixes” that in some cases can be harmful in other ways, Naturopathic medicine seeks to truly heal the individual.
Through both natural and conventional medicine combined with education, Naturopathic Physicians help bring people into their bodies. We help you identify areas of your life where changes and additions can be made to empower you to live a healthier and happier life.
We offer individualized treatment plan using various combinations of the following depending on each patient’s needs.
The quality of the food we eat directly affects how well we feel. Good health starts in the grocery cart. “My priority is to guide you as far through the process as you want to go, and to help support positive changes that can be incorporated into your lifestyle. The first step is learning about proper nutrition and designing an ideal eating plan based on your individual needs. When given the proper support and by removing the obstacles to health, the body with its infinite wisdom will return itself to balance and harmony”.
We incorporate both tradition of Ayurvedic and western herbalism in our practice.
Homeopathy is a subset of Naturopathic Medicine.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine in which minute doses of specially-prepared natural substances are used to stimulate the innate healing capacity of the body. Its central premise is the idea that “like cures like” – meaning that a substance that produces symptoms in a healthy person will cure those same symptoms in a sick person.
As a complete system of medicine, Homeopathy is helpful with the entire spectrum of human illness. This includes both physical and emotional disease. Examples include: anxiety, depression, back pain, fatigue, insomnia, allergies, arthritis, skin conditions, menopausal/hormonal conditions, auto-immune disease, ADHD, neurologic conditions, and many more.)

Craniosacral therapy is a physical medicine modality that uses a hands-on approach to detect and influence your body’s Cranio rhythm. Everyone has their own unique cranio rhythm, which is the result of cerebrospinal fluid pulsation. The craniosacral practitioner is trained to become attentive to this extremely subtle rhythm with their hands, and then act to help your body release any restrictions that may be present within the system. The goals are to ease the restrictions of nerve passages, optimize the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord, and restore misaligned bones to their proper position.
It can be useful to treat mental stress, neck and back pain, migraines, TMJ syndrome, and even chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
