Integrative medicine is the philosophy of using the best of all available forms of medicine with the sole purpose of improving patient outcomes. As a Naturopathic Doctor my philosophy is to provide integrative holistic medicine – using all available forms of medicine (mainstream and alternative) while addressing the person as a whole being rather than just treating symptoms.
Naturopathic Doctors are well trained in the philosophy of Integrative Medicine. We utilize many different modalities (treatment options) to help our patients achieve their health goals. As a Naturopath I use:
- Nutrition and dietary counseling
- Lifestyle counseling
- Exercise counseling
- Botanical (herbal) medicine
- Nutritional supplements
- Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
- Individualized advanced level testing
These are the tools I use to help my patients overcome their health concerns and optimize wellbeing. I also work in an Integrative clinic – the Integrative Health Institute where I work integratively with an amazing team of chiropractors, osteopaths, registered massage therapists, counselors, doulas, personal trainers and lifestyle coaches who can help my patients to achieve their goals.
