At North Coast Family Health our treatments have three distinct features:
Effective. Your health dramatically improves when the cause of your illness is treated with natural therapies.
Safe and gentle. Our treatments work to support and enhance your body’s natural healing abilities.
Long-term cost effectiveness. Helping your body grow stronger and enabling it to resist disease more effectively will result in substantial health care savings.
Naturopathic medicine is an established system of restorative medical care. A naturopathic doctor approaches each patient as a unique case, seeks to understand how a particular patient’s physiology is functioning, and looks for underlying areas of weakness that need to be strengthened in order to promote health.
As much as possible our naturopathic doctors will choose medicines that are restorative rather than suppressive to natural body functioning. When necessary, however, we will use pharmaceuticals or other treatments in order to treat infections or achieve necessary results for our patient’s safety.
At North Coast Family Health, we are a team of naturopathic doctors dedicated to better understanding you and your personal health needs and goals that we may empower you to achieve them.
To do this, we complete a thorough medical history, and ask questions about all aspects of your health. We will also conduct whatever medical, physical exam is necessary to help us in our evaluation. We spend time with you, taking up to two hours in an initial intake.
After this first visit, we will discuss with you options for further evaluation and treatment. Further evaluation can include standard lab tests, lab tests with specialty laboratories, referrals to specialists and/or imaging. In choosing your treatment, we will discuss options with you. Together we will develop a plan of care that is medically sound, works for you in your life and achieves results.
We are experienced with treating many patients who have a wide array of concerns. Some of these include allergies, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, skin conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, some cancers, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. At North Coast Family Health, we also offer expertise in acute and chronic Lyme disease and tick-borne illness.
Our treatments include diet and lifestyle recommendations, herbal and nutritional supplementation, homeopathy, counseling, physical medicine techniques, mind-body medicine, IV nutrition and anti-microbials. We can also see you for your annual visits, annual labs, school and work physicals and well child exams. We are happy to work with you for primary and specialty care, and will remain in contact with your healthcare team.
You are the only one who can choose your path of health, and we are here to give you the tools to do that.
