Nutrition

Clinical nutrition examines the relationship between diet and health. A patient's diet may be inspected for potential food allergens as well as proper breakdown and absorption of nutrients. Part of a treatment program may include dietary recommendations and specific nutritional supplements for the prevention and treatment of disease, the correction of dietary inadequacies and the promotion of wellness.

Botanical Medicine
Botanical or herbal medicine utilizes plant substances, which have been used safely and effectively for centuries in the prevention and treatment of disease. Using knowledge of uses and contraindications your Naturopathic doctor may suggest specific herbs as tincture, tea, extract or salve as part of your treatment.

Homeopathy
Based on the principle that “like cures like” homeopathy uses non-toxic doses of medicinal substances to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. Homeopathic medicine was originally developed during the 18th century by the German physician Hahnemann, and is widely used throughout the world. A homeopathic remedy is chosen to best match a person’s unique set of symptoms. It is a very safe therapy having little interaction with other treatments.

Physical Medicine
Naturopaths are trained in a variety of hands-on techniques for the spine, joints and soft tissues. Physical treatments also include hydrotherapy and the therapeutic use of heat and cold, light, massage and ultrasound.

Asian Medicine and Acupuncture (traditional Chinese medicine)
According to ancient principles disease is an imbalance of Yin and Yang. Treatment often includes acupuncture to balance Yin and Yang and re-establish optimum flow of Qi (energy) within the body, thus eliminating the root cause of disease.

Lifestyle Counseling
Naturopathic doctors work with their patients to make positive lifestyle choices and implement any health changes recommended as easily as possible. This often includes stress reduction techniques.
