Naturopathic Medicine is a synthesis of traditional and modern medicine.

By combining ancient healing wisdom with contemporary medical understanding, naturopathy brings you a vast holistic container to which to work with to heal your illness.  It also offers clear clinical wisdom and medical guidance.

Naturopathy is founded on the idea that the body can repair itself when given the proper conditions.

Instead of treating the symptoms, naturopathic doctors treat the whole person. We look at all aspects of a person’s being to find the root cause of illness.

Naturopathic doctors receive extensive medical training.

In many states, including California, we are licensed primary care doctors. We have been through four years of premedical studies, followed by four more years of graduate naturopathic medical school training.

Naturopathic doctors receive in-depth training in alternative modalities.  We are also versed in the medical sciences and conventional methods of diagnosis and treatment.

Naturopathic Modalities that I Practice

Clinical Nutrition and Dietary Counseling

Clinical nutrition is a foundation of healing. As a past nutrition instructor of five years, I have a great deal of experience in working with nutrition, and the many different nutritional perspectives regarding it in the world. From this background I find what is most true for your body type and constitution and develop an individualized nutrition plan for you based on your specific needs.

I also employ pharmaceutical-grade, whole-food supplements for balance and optimal health. I choose supplements that are tested for their purity and efficacy. The supplements I recommend are correlated to your illness (often with research backing them), your symptoms, as well as with what most resonates with your body energetically.

Healthy Body Weight Without Dieting

I have helped many patients find their comfortable body weight through the use of Intuitive Eating. Through helping you to connect to your bodies inner intuition and helping you to clear limiting beliefs regarding food, I can help you step into a healthy relationship with food and your body’s needs without yo-yo dieting.

Botanical Medicine

I work closely with plants to support and nurture each patient. Medicinal plants effectively support the healing process in many ways  They can provide powerful stabilizing, healing, cleansing and tonifying effects to every aspect of the body.

I often create herbal tinctures with custom formulas for each patient, as needed.

I have taught botanical medicine and find that these medicine allies offer an important role in healing.

Essential Oils

Essential oils can significantly boost your physical healing process, as well as support your emotional healing and awakening. These powerful plant allies can significantly shift your being toward healing.

Essential oils can help

  • Regenerate
  • Protect
  • Stabilize and balance your energy and emotions
  • Deliver anti-oxidants
  • Strengthen immunity
  • Kill off pathogens
  • Decrease your physical symptoms overall
  • And more

I use very high-grade essential oils. I use single oils, as well as compounds.

Flower Essences

I use flower essences to balance emotional disturbances. These essences both soothe and calm an individual, while on a deeper level transform and heal emotional issues.

I often make custom flower essence formulas for patients who need these powerful yet subtle remedies to help stabilize and brighten ones’ emotional well-being.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a safe option to address acute and chronic illnesses. I have seen it significantly heal the body.

In utilizing homeopathy we look at your specific symptoms, as well as the larger view of symptoms in your life, in order to find the remedy that is right for you.

Lifestyle Counseling

I listen very carefully to you and reflect back to you what I hear. I will also with tenderness, non-judgement and compassion help you address the more difficult habits and aspects of your life that are not health giving. I meet you where you are at, help you see the deeper picture, as well as heal limiting beliefs to help you overcome your challenges to health and vitality

Clinical and Laboratory Testing

I can run conventional and specialized laboratory testing. These tests can provide valuable information about your physiology.

I offer many specialized tests including

  • Food allergy
  • Heavy metal
  • Hormonal analysis
  • Gastrointestinal function testing
  • Toxicity panels
  • Organic acids test
  • Test for many different pathogens in the body
