Naturopathic physicians specialize in using the least amount of force necessary to restore balance and health in an individual. Safe, non-toxic therapies minimize unpleasant and potentially harmful side effects of more conventional treatments.
Symptoms are your body's way of telling you that something more is wrong, and naturopathic physicians realize that simply covering them up does nothing to correct the underlying imbalance. Identifying and treating the root cause of an illness is a process that requires time and commitment, but we firmly believe that it is the only road to total health.
You are so much more than a group of unrelated body systems. Naturopathic physicians see each individual patient as a whole person: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. We believe that all of these parts are intricately connected and must be balanced for health to be achieved.
The best treatment for a disease is always to prevent getting it in the first place. Naturopathic physicians are very skilled in identifying and treating the underlying imbalances which, if not addressed, will lead to chronic disease over time.
Your body is smart...it knows how to heal itself. The most important job of a naturopathic physician is to identify and give your body what it needs in order to do so. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to encourage the body's innate ability to achieve health and balance.
Health is a life-long journey, and you deserve to have a doctor on your team who will take the time to guide you in everything you need to know about making the healthy lifestyle choices that will help you reach the highest states of health. Naturopathic physicians listen to and answer your health questions. We empower and inspire you to take control of your health through the development of a long-term doctor-patient relationship built on trust and respect.
