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”.

Preventative Medicine

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.

Bio-Identical Hormone Prescribing

When applicable and needed, we can provide you with a salivary hormone testing kit. This way we have accurate information about your individual hormone levels, and if supplementation is needed, we can use the most natural form of hormone available. Bio-identical hormones mimic human hormones in your body and are plant-based. This makes them the most natural option for hormone prescribing. They can also be completely customized to meet your individual concerns and achieve optimum hormone levels.

Nutrient Injections

Our office provides a variety of different vitamins for injection. These include B6,  B12, B-Complex, and other compounds containing amino acids and lipotropic agents to assist in energy and weight loss goals.

Clinical Nutrition

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.

Herbal Medicine

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

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.

Lifestyle Counseling

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.

hCG Diet Protocol

The hCG diet is a medically supervised weight loss program that consists of daily use of hCG and a very low calorie diet.

The powerful effect of this medication allows abnormal fat stores to be released and burned as fuel. Because of the incredible amount of energy contained in abnormal fat stores, patients are able to follow this seemingly impossible diet with little or no irritability, fatigue, anxiety, or cravings. The small amounts of hCG are safe with little side effects.

You will be amazed as you watch the pounds and inches melt from your belly, hips, buttocks, back, and arms.  You could lose 20-30 pounds in 30 days!
