Go Beyond Disease Management

Are you one of many people who simply accept feeling poorly as a way of life without ever knowing how energetic, positive and pain free you can feel?

If you are seeking health rather than disease management with medications, naturopathic medicine needs to be an important part of your health care.  It is the most cost effective health care solution as it reverses disease and promotes health rather than medication dependence.

Symptoms are your body’s way of letting you know something isn’t quite right and needs attention to correct.  Doesn’t it make sense to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms rather than managing or suppressing them?

An Integrated Approach to Healing

We recognize disease as imbalances in the body often caused by one or more contributing factors. Discerning the imbalances and causes within you requires a detailed medical history, symptom questionnaires, lab testing, and physical exam.

Using a science-based approach of nutrition, exercise, botanical medicines, homeopathybioidentical hormonesIV Nutrients, IV laser therapy,  and carefully selected medicines, we seek to restore you to balance and health.

Personalized Care

Our doctors take the time to listen to you and address your health concerns.  Your first office visit is typically 2 hours, and follow-up visits are 30-60 minutes. In this time, we recommend an investigative lab testing and treatment plan customized for your specific needs.
