Are we the "Right Fit"?
Let’s make sure we are the best fit for your needs. We see the best outcomes when the patient understands what we do and is fully engaged in our process. Our process with our patients is ever evolving to create a new culture in healthcare, using all of the tools of naturopathic medicine, including lifestyle changes, herbal and homeopathic medicines, energy work and nutritional advice. We find the tools that fit YOU.
We believe a relationship is ideal if both parties are fully invested, believe in the work that is to be done together and ready to trust the process.
Our process is to understand you and your needs and then to create the plan on how you will meet your health goals.
We begin by having you complete a background questionnaire before your first visit to serve as a launching pad to understand you and what led to your current issues. We then review your history together during the initial consult and create a “Roadmap”, where we tailor the exact naturopathic therapies needed for you to both become and stay well.
Our therapies may include lifestyle changes (diet, exercise), herbs, homeopathics or nutritional supplements, or even body work techniques or other energetic interventions.
We have over twenty years of experience showing that our methods work.
You have NO health concerns, but would like to keep it that way! We believe we have much to offer from our naturopathic doctoral training and decades of continuing medical education to assist your understanding and capacity to prevent the diseases of your ancestors. We hope to guide you to the best way to maintain health and wellness even as one progresses in age.
We offer abbreviated appointments for acute issues such as a mysterious rash or to prevent antibiotics.
Chronic health problems are problems that have been present for longer than six months and/or are being treated with prescription medications. Often acute problems morph into chronic ones.
If you are unsure of whether your problem is acute or chronic, it may be a combination of both, where the chronic problem mounts as an acute infection, for example, every few months. Examples of common chronic health problems include GERD (Esophageal Reflux Disease), Hypertension, Chronic headaches/migraines, recurrent Sinusitis, ongoing joint pain/arthritis, diabetes and asthma or eczema.
Chronic health problems require a professional consultation with one of our naturopathic doctors. Professional consults are also recommended if you feel you have too many questions or if the prospect of starting a supplemental and homeopathic program feels too overwhelming to you without the direct support.
We advise scheduling a New Patient Consultation if any of the symptoms in question have been associated with the diagnosis of a chronic disease where the allopathic, conventional medical system has not helped you resolve it.
If you have had a number of health problems for a number of years, or have a current cancer diagnosis, we require a longer initial intake.
Examples of other complicated health concerns include: Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, uncontrolled or insulin-dependent-Diabetes, medicated hypertension, heart disease, any autoimmune condition, and neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Any complicated case will require an extended consultation. This 150-minute initial session allows for a thorough review and time for building your plan and then also includes an additional 45-minute follow-up visit to make sure you have all the support you need to get started on our initial suggestions.
