Clinical Nutrition

Clinical Nutrition

Recommendations will be made on an individual basis taking into consideration your current lifestyle and nutrition, your health concerns, any allergies and sensitivities, and your wellness goals. A specific diet may be recommended. Resources such as books, nutritional literature and recipes may be recommended or supplied to help support and guide you on your nutritional plan.

Your treatment plan will likely include nutritional supplements. Nutritional supplements may be added if you require a pharmaceutical dose of nutrient versus a typical food dose. Nutritional supplements are able to make up for nutrients which are not readily available in your diet. If your body has a difficulty with digestion or absorption, supplements are in a concentrated enough form to help your body absorb necessary nutrients. Nutritional supplements are often taken as a: chewable, capsule, tablet, or powder.

 

Botanical Medicine

Botanical Medicine

 Botanical medicine is a vital component of the healing arts that draws on the accumulated and developing knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants in the prevention and treatment of disease. Botanical medicine includes medical herbalism, a healing art that relies on the synergistic and curative properties of plants to treat symptoms and disease and maintain health, and pharmocognosy, the study of natural products. Botanical medicine is an important component of numerous traditional medical systems and therapies. Botanical medicine has survived for many thousands of years in some form and in all cultures throughout the world. Plants have been used since prehistoric times as medicinal remedies applied in various ways to provide relief from irritations as minor as a mosquito bite to situations as catastrophic as the plague.

Lifestyle Counseling

Lifestyle Counseling

Mental attitudes and emotions are important factors in overall health and should be considered when treating illness and disease. Naturopathic physicians are trained in various counseling techniques and offers support for those dealing with work-related stress, relationship issues, life transitions, and health problems, particularly chronic health problems. Whether making a life transition or dealing with the everyday stress of the modern world, we believe in the power of counseling and support to encourage emotional growth and balance.

 

 

Naturopathic Physical Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Physical Medicine provides a philosophical naturopathic perspective, as well as practical clinical applications, for manual and physical approaches to health care. A wide range of bodywork and movement approaches and modalities are evaluated in relation to their ability to be appropriately used in naturopathic treatment and rehabilitation settings. The model of care emphasized recognizes that naturopathically oriented therapeutic interventions usually focus on achieving one or all of the following: enhancement of function so that the person, system or part, can better self-regulate in response to adaptive demands; modification or removal of adaptive load factors; and symptomatic relief without creation of significant additional adaptive changes.

 

Homeopathy

homeopathy

Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself.  Homeopathic medicine views symptoms of illness as normal responses of the body as it attempts to regain health. Based on the idea that "like cures like." That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance may cure the illness. In theory, a homeopathic dose enhances the body's normal healing and self-regulatory processes.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
