The Tools of Naturopathic Medicine:
Clinical Nutrition and Nutritional Supplementation
I have extensive training in nutrition and I operate from an understanding that what a person eats has profound effects on their health. In my clinical experience, other treatments such as supplements, herbs and homeopathy may have a beneficial effect, but without the foundation of a healthy diet, that effect will be limited. Eating a healthy diet works synergistically with and improves the outcome of virtually any other treatment it is combined with. Many medical conditions may be treated effectively and without side effects using food and nutritional supplements.
Lifestyle Coaching and Stress Management
Other vastly important factors to health include patterns and habits around eating, sleeping, breathing, exercise, mental attitude and emotional state. I empower my patients to tackle change in a sustainable way through lifestyle counseling, stress management techniques and more.
Plants have powerful healing properties. Many pharmaceutical drugs were initially isolated from plants. I find that whole plant extracts can have powerful healing effects, yet they work in a more balanced way with fewer side effects than isolated drug compounds.
This gentle and effective system of medicine uses very small doses of substances found in nature to stimulate a healing response in the body. Homeopathy has been in use for over 200 years and is widely accepted and employed by both conventional and alternative medical providers in Europe and India.
Hydrotherapy is the application of hot and cold water to achieve healing effects. These effects occur by increasing circulation of blood and improving delivery of oxygen, nutrients and immune cells to targeted parts of the body. It can achieve rapid and gratifying results for many health conditions. Hydrotherapy has been used for well over 300 years by naturopathic doctors and the forebears of naturopathic medicine.
