As a Naturopathic Doctor, my approach to health blends centuries-old, natural, non-toxic therapies, with current advances in the study of health and human systems.
At Natural Choices, we offer natural health care for the entire family.
We also specialize in truly preventative care so that you can make the needed changes today in order to avoid serious health issues in the future.
Itís easy to forget how good we can feel when our bodies are functioning properly. In fact, a majority of Americans today have come to accept all their aches and pains, sniffles and sneezes, fatigue, indigestion, weight gain, headaches, mood swings and food cravings as normal and unavoidable.
One reason for this misconception is that conventional medicine in America has focused more on treating disease and less on preventing it. Typically, we get sick, take medication and our symptoms go away. But because this approach rarely addresses the underlying causes that have weakened our body and brought on the illness, itís rare that we regain optimal health. Instead, just to feel okay, we gradually come to depend on over-the-counter drugs, alcohol, stimulants, even junk food Ė all of which can further weaken our bodyís natural ability to protect itself.
My intention is to inform, educate, and inspire you to become an active participant on your journey for optimal health and vitality!
Together, we can investigate and address possible underlying conditions in order to achieve long-term solutions.
Initial Consultation: I spend a lot of time LISTENING to your health history. Your overall physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual state of being is part of this initial assessment. My mission is to care for the whole person Ė and not just treat symptoms. To accomplish this, I carefully evaluate family history, environmental stresses, nutritional status, general physical state, thoughts, feelings and lifestyle.
Once I have taken a complete and comprehensive health history, I might suggest specific TESTS to provide objective data in my search for underlying causes of illness. For example, blood testing can indicate many health concerns long before symptoms arise.
My approach to your health is STRATEGIC. Some people need to focus on rebuilding their vitality. For others, it is important to directly address the health concern(s). For example, for a patient who is weak and fatigued with fibromyalgia, I might suggest strengthening the adrenal glands, adding high-quality vitamins, minerals and hers, and working to improve their diet. For someone with a stronger constitution, I might address the pain first, while also looking at underlying causes.
Each personís situation is different. I seek to create diet and healthcare plans that are uniquely tailored to your individual physiology and personal needs. No two people are alike and no one cure or therapy is going to be the answer to every patientís ailments. I strive to customize a plan to fit the individual rather than fit the individual into a plan.
I also help educate you, not only about your presenting condition, but also about how diet affects the condition that we are working on, important lifestyle changes, strategies to change negative attitudes, and ways to respond to the stress in your life in a more nurturing way. But deeper than that, I help you learn how to notice stress, and become aware of other factors that you might not realize are contributing to your illness.
I stay on top of the latest research and information in natural health, and I am constantly learning about new approaches. It is what I love to do!
I am committed to your health, and if I canít help you, I will refer you to other health practitioners who might have the particular set of skills you need.
Ignore Your Health . . . And It Will Go Away.
