Why Naturopathic Medicine?

An Integrated Aproach

Naturopathic Treatment Modalities 

Personalized

Nutrition

Utilizing an array of therapeutic diets including Paleo, Keto, Plant-based, Mediterranean, and intermittent fasting to help you reach your nutrition goals.

Physical Medicine & Movement

Movement as medicine comes in all forms. Find out which forms may fit you and your health goals best. 

Botanical Medicine & Supplementation

Effective, evidence-based and safe herbal medicine prescribing are fundamental to supporting optimal health. 

Acupuncture, IMS, Cupping 

From traditional style, to dry needling and electro-stimulation, acupuncture is a wonderful tool for managing stress, reducing chronic pain, and may help in build greater mental and physical resilience. 

Drug Therapies & IV Nutrient therapy 

As an ND I understand the value of pharmaceutical medications when they are required. Knowing how and when to use them appropriately is integral to comprehensive integrative patient care. 

Shared Decision Making

First and foremost, I strive to inform and empower my patients to be active participants in their healthcare. Getting to know my patients values and goals are a prerequisite to any treatment.
