Naturopathic Medical Care
Naturopathic doctors are licensed primary care providers in the State of California. This means that if you would see an MD for it, you have the option of seeing an ND as well. We provide natural care for acute conditions as well as chronic complaints. Our goal is to find the cause, and treat with the least invasive methods possible. We explore and treat the underlying condition instead of covering the symptoms with a “band-aid”.
Why wait until you’re ill, or something is wrong? We can address underlying conditions like nutrient deficiencies, food allergies or hormone imbalance that is keeping you from feeling your best. Plan ahead, and get your body in an optimum state of wellness for the prevention of disease and discomfort.
We can provide you with general nutritional advice to meet your concerns, or we can do an in-depth evaluation of your eating habits to customize a program for you. Special dietary programs are available for insulin resistance, diabetes, hormone balance, inflammation and various other conditions. Other available diagnostic options may include food allergy testing, amino acid assay or extensive functional testing for vitamin, mineral and nutrient testing.
Naturopathic doctors are extensively trained in the use of botanical medicines. This may include the addition of single herbs, tonics, or custom compounded herbal tinctures for individual patient concerns. Herbs can be used in food, powder, capsule, liquid and other forms depending upon the specific purpose of use and intent. We will find the best options for each patients lifestyle and concerns.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a Naturopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.
Along with providing you with a customized nutrition protocol, you will likely be given a page of lifestyle recommendations for you to implement at home. These may include exercise, sleep, folk/home remedies or home hydrotherapy suggestions. We would like to have you leave our office with as many tools as possible for you to achieve and maintain optimal health without our intervention.
