Personalized Supplement and Botanical Medicine Prescriptions

The use of natural substances such as plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients is a foundation of any naturopathic treatment plan. The intention behind the use of these natural substances is to support the body and optimize organ and systems functions by using safe, effective, natural medicine prescriptions. 

  • Botanical Medicines including custom compounded teas, tinctures, capsules, and powders. 

  • Supplements in the form of capsules, powders, and liquids available. 

Only high-quality, professional-grade products with enhanced manufacturing standards are used. This is essential to reducing unnecessary binders and fillers and reducing any adverse reactions, while still ensuring adequate and therapeutic amounts of ingredients are contained as stated on the label. 

Both an in-clinic dispensary and online natural health product orders are available for your convenience.

Pharmaceutical Prescriptions &

Medication Refills

As a primary care physician, I can help manage your medications and prescriptions in conjunction with your other health care providers. As a naturopathic doctor, it is important to use prescription medications when they are required, in addition to other naturopathic treatment foundations. 

Some commonly prescribed medications include:

  • Thyroid hormone replacement,

  • Contraceptives,

  • Menopausal hormone replacement therapy (estrogen and progesterone),

  • Medications for diabetes

  • Antibiotics for infections

  • and more

The appropriate use of these modalities are important to my integrative naturopathic practice. 

 

My goal is to educate and empower patients regarding the use of such therapies so that they can ultimately make an informed decision and be confident about the healthcare they choose to receive. 

 
 

Injection Therapies

When supplementation and proper nutrition are not enough, intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapy can be a good option to quickly and effectively boost your nutrient status. Intramuscular injections can also be used to rapidly increase B12 and other B-vitamin levels in cases of deficiency or malabsorption. 

Commonly administered intravenous & intramuscular vitamins and nutrients:

  • Vitamin C

  • B12, B-complex 

  • Magnesium

  • Calcium 

  • Selenium 

  • Zinc 

  • Taurine, Carnitine 

  • Glutathione 

  • Other amino acids and nutrients 

Each intravenous and intramuscular injection is customized to your individual nutrient requirements and needs. By bypassing the digestive system, intravenous infusions allow for a much higher concentration of nutrients to reach the bloodstream, thereby enhancing their therapeutic potential. Intravenous and intramuscular injections are commonly used for a viariety of health conditions including chronic fatigue states, chronic viral infections, and gastrointestinal malabsorption. 

 

Acupuncture, Cupping & 

Soft-Tissue Therapy

Acupuncture is the use of very fine, single-use, stainless steel needles that are inserted just below the skin at specific points (acupuncture points) on the body. From a traditional Chinese medicine point-of-view, acupuncture can regulate the flow of energy or "Qi" helping bring balance back to the body. From a conventional medicine perspective, acupuncture and needling can help reduce stress, release muscle tension, and help manage pain. 

Cupping is a form of soft-tissue therapy that originated from traditional Chinese medicine but is now widely used amongst manual therapists and professional athletes. Cupping uses suction applied to a small area of the body to lift and distract superficial tissue, providing pain relief and reducing scar tissue. 

Acupuncture and cupping are commonly used for reducing muscle stiffness and pain, improving restricted motion, eliminating tension headaches, and reducing stress. Acupuncture is known to modulate the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) signaling and chemicals which may explain its relaxing and analgesic effects. 

Pricing for Acupuncture, Cupping & Soft-Tissue Therapy:

  • Acupuncture Initial Visit (75 minutes) - $140

  • Acupuncture and Cupping return visit (60-minutes) - $100

Many extended health insurance plans cover acupuncture treatments under your naturopathic medical coverage, check with your insurance provider for more information.
