When the body is in distress it sends symptoms as signals that things aren't right. By suppressing the symptoms, you are setting yourself up to become more ill. We work together to remove those symptoms entirely. For example, learning how and what to eat, exercises to complete, and how to take care of our bodies, are certain ways we help treat the body. This way of medicine helps prevent more pain and saves money in the long run. Rid yourself from daily medication and take a natural approach.
With this in mind, please consider the common conditions that many patients have found help with by seeking out alternative and holistic medicine and care.

The skin is our largest continuous organ and is part of a series of organs known as the emunctories, or organs of detoxification. When the primary emunctories are overburdened, the skin takes over. Suppressive therapies only drive the illness deeper into the body, and the eruptions will come back after the conventional treatment is discontinued. By addressing the underlying cause of the disturbance and supporting the other emunctory organs, the naturopathic approach heals illness of the skin from the inside out.
Our digestive tract is one of the first organs to form as we develop in the womb. This is because of the central role digestion plays in our life.

Through comprehensive dietary analysis, a program of herbal and probiotic health, along with vigilant monitoring and assessment chronic ailments of the gut, can receive tremendous benefits. The naturopathic adage treats the gut and allows the body to heal.
The modern world is filled with toxic exposure, from food sources, plastic, old building materials, and smog; the list goes on.

Testing for toxic exposure and body burden can help target therapies for eliminating that burden from the body. Depending on the severity of your burden, we will tailor a detox and depuration program to meet your needs. Through a combination of herbal and homeopathic cellular cleansing and focused natural detoxification agents, we will safely and with minimal impact to the health of your body, eliminate the burden you have been carrying, freeing you to enjoy optimum levels of health.
