“Naturopathy is a philosophy which encompasses a view of life, a model for living a full life. The word naturopathy is a Latin-Greek hybrid which can be defined as ‘being close to or benefiting from nature.’” — Stewart Mitchell, Naturopathy: Understanding the Healing Power of Nature.

Why is Naturopathic Care Right for Me?
Naturopathy is an approach to healing that examines the entire person, seeks to correct imbalances holistically, and customizes a wellness plan for each client. Some of the many benefits of Naturopathy include:
A Focus on Prevention
Naturopathy emphasizes health and wellness, not just the education of imbalances responsible for diseases. You’ll receive education in lifestyle and diet choices that fundamentally influence your health.
A Holistic Approach to Healing
By addressing underlying root cause of illness, including all those related to the body, mind and spirit, you will learn to identify and address all aspects of your health so that you may live in harmony and peace.
A Safe Way to Address Illness
Naturopathic techniques are non-invasive and non-toxic. You’ll have no concerns about drug interactions, overdoses, and other adverse side effects that are common with other types of medical treatments.
Use of Trusted Practices
Many of the protocols used in naturopathy have been extensively evaluated by medical research.
Also, naturopathic techniques have time-honored acceptance in the healthcare community as being beneficial to overall health.
Our Objective in the office is the prevention of “disease” and the attainment of optimal health.
Prevention should start at conception and continue through life by eating real foods, drinking plenty of clean water, avoiding exposure to chemicals like pesticides and food additives, and toxic metals like mercury or aluminum. High quality natural supplements should also be taken as needed.
