I combine the best natural medicines from around the world with a thorough strategy to treat the root causes of your health challenges.
This is a system of medicine that encourages the body, mind, and emotions to regain homeostasis through gentle means. Through this process, the body “remembers” what it has always known: to eliminate waste products and absorb what is nourishing. Drainage remedies are liquid homeopathic preparations typically taken two to three times a day. These medicines are re-assessed on a monthly basis and changed according to the body’s needs.
Food & lifestyle
Naturopathic doctors understand that what you eat is the basis for your health. Adopting a healthy diet is often the first step towards correcting health problems. Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements than they can by other means, but with fewer complications and side effects. Sleep, movement, and stress management are also important factors in achieving a high level of wellness.
This gentle yet effective system of medicine is more than 200 years old and is based on the principle “like cures like”. Homeopathic medicines are very small doses of natural substances that can stimulate the body’s self-healing response. Some conditions for which conventional medicine has no effective treatments will respond well to homeopathy.
Plants have powerful and complex healing properties. These medicines have a long, rich history among many cultures and, interestingly, are the origins of many pharmaceutical drugs... the combination of ancient wisdom and modern science. Naturopathic doctors use plant substances for their healing effects and nutritional value.
The use of natural substances such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, probiotics, amino acids, and enzymes can help support a patient’s physiology while the healing process takes place. Naturopathic doctors look for signs of insufficiency as well, and can use these high quality, natural medicines to acheive a higher level of well being.
