As a naturopathic doctor it is my job to provide you with optimum service and help maintain your health through the combination of modern science and traditional natural elements. My practice revolves around stimulating and manipulating the body's natural healing functions both internally and externally. Naturopath doctors are trained in a similar way to those you will find in a 'regular' doctor's office. Along with our fundamental understanding of natural elements we are trained to read x-rays, prescribe medication if needed, and even conduct minor surgeries such as removing cysts.
Naturopathic healing could potentially help lessen symptoms of various diseases, treat pains in the body, prevent and treat breakouts on the skin from allergies, and so much more!
