For your first visit, please show up a few minutes early to fill out the appropriate paperwork and health history. This will help your visit go much more smoothly.
All treatment begins with a complete case history and proper diagnosis, which takes place during your first visit. We spend a lot of time getting a complete picture of your health and lifestyle. We’ll also ask questions about your environment and specific symptoms you may have. Based on what we learn, we’ll come up with a customized treatment plan using one or more treatment modalities.
These treatment modalities may include:
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Naturally derived hormones are provided to raise hormones to levels found in a youthful person. These hormones can relieve deficencies and also cause healthy effects even if there is no deficiency. This form of therapy is safer and usually more effective than hormone replacement therapy with synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones can treat rapid aging, fibromyalgia, low libido, autoimmune diseases, PMS, menopause symptoms, PMS and other gynecological issues.
Botanical Medicine (Herbs)
Originally, all medicine came from plants and natural substances. Natural medical substances are far safer and have fewer side effects than synthetic drugs. Most drugs do not cure anything and only prevent symptoms, while natural medical substances tend to support your body’s efforts to regulate and heal itself.
Chelation therapy is extremely effective at treating heavy metal poisoning. It is also believed to be effective at leaching out calcium from calcified arteries (atherosclerosis). Also see detoxification.
Colon hydrotherapy uses enemas to inject water, sometimes mixed with herbs or with other liquids, into the colon using special equipment. This is the safest system known in the medical world for cleansing the bowels. In addition to cleansing, it also improves the peristaltic movements of the bowels and thereby relieves constipation.
Your body already detoxifies itself naturally. No matter how healthy you are and how healthy you eat, waste materials accumulate and must be eliminated. Otherwise, they will slowly poison the body. However, the body’s detoxification processes are not perfect, and toxins can built up over time. A detoxification program can help give a boost to natural detox processes. Detoxification therapy is performed using various diets and supplements tailored to your specific situation.
Hair analysis is used to diagnose mineral deficiencies and overdoses. It is routinely used in courtrooms to prove heavy metal toxicity. When used in naturopathic care, it is used to uncover less serious conditions and formulate a corrective nutrition program.
Homeopathy is a powerful system of medicine that uses highly diluted substances to cure illness. It is over 200 years old. Homeopathic remedies act to enhance the body’s own innate healing responses and do not interact with other medications.
Live Blood Analysis
Live blood analysis is performed using dark field microscopy to achieve observations normally requiring a stained blood sample. It provides information about the immune system, vitamin deficiencies, toxicities, pH imbalances, mineral imbalances, fungus and yeast.
Since ancient times, therapy has included exposure to outside elements such as sunshine, fresh air, heat, or cold.
Nutritional counseling is one of the cornerstones of naturopathic medicine. Food can be sued to maintain health and treat illness. Countless clinical studies have shown that many health condtions can be treated as effectively with food and supplements as with other means. Proper nutrition has nearly zero negative side effects, and countless positive effects.
Ozone is a highly reactive form of oxygen, with three oxygen molecules as opposed to the two oxygen molecules that life depends on. Ozone has been used to reduce blood thickness and improve immune function, among other effects.
Physical Medicine (manipulative therapy, hydrotherapy, massage, etc.)
Many conditions respond to various treatments based on gentle physical manipulation. Musculoskeletal complaints are particularly affected by physical treatments, but physical medicine also often produces improvement in other, internal complaints such as digestive issues.
Meditation, stress management and relaxation are not only good for mental health, they also carry over to physical health. Despite what Descartes said, the body and mind are highly connected. This is demonstrated with the placebo effect, the connection between stress and blood pressure, and more.
Reflexology is the practice of manipulating the feet, or sometimes the hands and ears, with the goal of encouraging a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, or to improve general health. Certain sensitive parts of the body seem to mirror the body as a whole, and manipulating these target reflex areas stimulates health in the corresponding areas of the body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical discipline going back thousands of years. TCM includes acupuncture and the use of herbs. Acupuncture has been shown to cause the release of various natural hormones, histamines, neurotransmitters and other biochemicals. These are the very substances that modern drugs attempt to replicate through artificial means. The exact mechanisms that make acupuncture so effective are unknown, but acupuncture has been cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institute of Health (NIH) for being effective for many conditions.
Chinese herbs are almost always given in a formula with synergetic ingredients. Different herbs work together so that the combination of herbs is far more potent than the individual herbs. This allows the individual herbs to be used in small amounts, which minimizes the chances of side effects from any individual herb.
