Our Approach

My personal approach to naturopathic medicine begins with the patient’s goals. People live busy lives and want results. And so, I take my time to listen, to be sure that we don’t waste any time doing exactly what has already been done in the past for treatment; but instead, to try something new. I believe strongly in the body’s own ability to heal, and feel that all that we can do as physicians, is to help guide a person to what it is they need individually, for their own body to be able to restore its healing ability.

As a naturopathic physician, instead of only focusing on one’s health on the biochemical and physical level, I try my best to be comprehensive in my approach to an individual, by paying attention to the interaction of the different physiological systems, and how they interact on different levels. This approach has many different names, all of which mean essentially the same thing: some of these terms include: Functional medicine, Mind-Body medicine, the Bio-psycho-social model of health, or even more technically verbose, Clinical Psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology.

Assessment involves using naturopathic and conventional assessments in order to gain a thorough understanding of the health concern, its possible causative factors, and what would be the most appropriate treatment approach.

While the goal of treatment is to address the root cause of the health condition or concern, treatment also focuses on reducing the level of stress on the mind and body, and restoring balance and the ability for the body to self regulate and heal. In short, each patient receives a comprehensive individualized treatment plan that is tailored to their health needs and goals.
