As a Naturopathic Doctor, I follow the therapeutic order in the treatments that I use. This is a step-by-step order that starts at the very basics of habits. In my clinic, I focus on staying as close to the bottom of the order as possible, allowing me to work with and refer to MDs and DOs as the situation calls for the higher orders. This helps me work with you to find and restore the root cause of keeping you from your best health.
Establishing the conditions for health. This includes diet, exercise, sleep, hydration, mental/emotional, etc. (removing the obstacles to health).
Everybody has their own innate power to heal. This is called the Vis Medicatrix Naturae (the healing power of nature).
Supporting organs and systems is the next higher order. This can include specific drainage remedies or techniques to strengthen the functioning of weakened systems.
Restoring the structural integrity of the body is essential in the road to find a healthy state.
Prescribing natural substances like supplements and herbal tinctures that can support any of the previous orders.
Prescribing pharmacological/artificial substances. This is something my scope of practice does not allow at this time. However, I have been trained in pharmacology and can help refer you to the right doctor as necessary.
High force intervention. This is also outside of my scope of practice at this time.
Homeopathy is an entire system of medicine in and of itself. It uses extremely diluted substances that improve symptoms that it would cause in a completely healthy individual. It's so simplistic it almost sounds counterintuitive. This is a very in-depth intake between the doctor and patient that allows true customized care. It takes into account the whole person and helps activate each patient’s natural healing processes as well as restoring their physical and emotional well-being. This treatment supports the Vis Medicatrix Naturae.
The BioScan Device is a USA FDA cleared, state of the art Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) testing system.
The Practitioner selects the desired acupuncture point and applies the stylus to that acupuncture point on the Client. The Client completes the electrical circuit by holding a HandMass and the GSR measurement reading is recorded by the BioScanMSA software. The conductivity for the meridian is collected by the BioScanMSA software and interpreted by the Certified Practitioner as an indication of acute or chronic stress within the meridian. This treatment helps to identify the route to establish the conditions for health.
Constitutional hydrotherapy uses a series of hot and cold compresses on the torso and back in sequence to stimulate digestion, increase immune function, and balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic immune systems. This treatment focuses on supporting the Vis Medicatrix Naturae and supporting organs and systems.
This is a hands-on body treatment that leaves patients feeling relaxed and renewed. This gentle adjustment to the head, neck, and spine can release subtle tissue blockages and increase the circulation of cerebral spinal fluid up and down the spine. This can work on building structural integrity, which can be the root cause of headaches, developmental disabilities, dementia, PTSD, TMJ, and more. This treatment supports the Vis Medicatrix Naturae as well as restoring structural integrity.
Matter and energy are completely intertwined by vibration. Sound can be used to tune the tissues of the body to optimal resonance. It can be used in conjunction with other alternative therapies. It takes into account the whole person and helps activate each patient’s natural healing processes as well as restoring their physical and emotional well-being. This treatment supports the Vis Medicatrix Naturae.
