Naturopathic medicine is the treatment and prevention of diseases by natural means. Naturopathic Doctors assess the whole person, taking into consideration physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. Gentle, non-invasive techniques are generally used in order to stimulate the body’s inherent healing capacity. These techniques may include a combination of herbs, vitamins, homeopathy, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and hydrotherapy.
Naturopathic Medicine is not a substitute for medical care and we highly encourage you to have an active relationship with an MD or DO.
It is very important that you inform us, immediately, of any disease process that you are suffering from and any medications/over the counter drugs that you are currently taking. Please advise us, immediately if you are pregnant, suspect you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding.
As a client you will receive information about your Naturopathic impression, recommendations, alternative courses of action, the material effects, costs, expected benefits, risks, side effects and in each case the consequences of not following through with suggestions.

These include but are not limited to:
Homeopathic remedies may occasionally result in the aggravation of pre-existing symptoms. When this occurs the duration is usually short.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not wait to seek care. Call 911 immediately.
