Optimize your health
You are what you eat - and I preach moderation!
I love to cook and I love to eat, though I realize that not everyone is like me. The relationship between nutrition and wellness, or between inadequate nutrition and disease, is well documented and is a cornerstone of Naturopathic Medicine. I am always thinking about current health goals and long term disease prevention (e.g. diabetes, cancer, and heart disease prevention). I really believe that with a minimal amount of effort most people can improve their health, both short term and long term, by eating better. I don't believe that there is one way of eating that works with every body, so it's important that we tailor any diet changes to you specifically.
HERBS & VITAMINS
Plants have been used safely and effectively for centuries in the prevention and treatment of disease. Their clinical uses and effects are described in detail in traditional literature, and they are the subjects of an increasing amount of new scientific research. Documentation exists that demonstrates the safe and effective use of many botanical medicines over generations. Herbs have pharmacological properties that necessitate their use by appropriately trained health care providers as to avoid interactions with other medications that you may be taking.
Balance your body
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture comprise a system of medicine that has been in use for over 5,000 years for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Acupuncture can be an amazing treatment option for many people. There are thousands of scientific studies on acupuncture treating dozens of conditions, from stress, insomnia, high blood pressure, menopause, muscle & joint pains to infertility! One of my goals of acupuncture session is for you to be able to relax during the treatment. Counter-intuitive to what you may think, it shouldn't hurt!
Simple changes get results
I believe that many simple things can help people to build resilience in their health and allow them to feel better. Whether it's getting to bed at a decent hour, meditating, moving your body, spending time in nature, or chewing your food - these things can have profound effects on your health!
By Prescription Only
Bioidentical hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid) can have amazing and quick acting effects on the body. Whether we're talking about hypothyroidism, infertility, or menopause - they may be a treatment option.
