Herbs can be used medicinally to treat a wide variety of conditions, and are a safe and non-toxic alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. They have be used for many centuries in both Western and Eastern traditions.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a unique healing medical system that uses highly diluted and energized substances from nature to stimulate the body's vital force. It was developed by the German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, at the end of the 18th century. Remedies are chosen to match the state of the whole person. Homeopathy is a form of energy medicine, much like acupuncture, to stimulate a deep curative effect.
Not only is homeopathy powerful, but it is gentle and safe for people of all ages, including infants and pregnant women. Homeopathy works effectively in a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions such as Allergies, Children's Behavioral Problems, Chronic Fatigue, Colds & Flu, Depression, Fears or Anxieties, Fibromyalgia,
Digestive Problems, (ex. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, IBS), Insomnia,
Headaches and Migraines,Menstrual Problems.
"Let food be your medicine, and medicine your food" ~ Hippocrates
Naturopathic Doctors recognize the critical role that nutrition plays in a healthy living, and its therapeutic role in treating illness.
This includes both macronutrient requirements (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats), as well as micronutrients, (vitamins and minerals), which play a significant role in proper metabolic functioning. Furthermore, nutritional counseling, food allergy elimination, as well as detoxification, and nutritional supplementation are offered.
Lifestyle Counseling & Stress Management
"Stress = resistance to what is"
Stress is defined as the total demands placed on oneself, which cannot be comfortably met. However, it is NOT the stressor itself that is detrimental, but how we react to it. If we cannot adapt or cope properly, tension will arise and eventually manifest as physical, mental, emotional, and/or behavioral dis-ease. This includes digestive disorders, tension headaches, insomnia, mood swings, hormonal imbalance.
The goal of naturopathic medicine is to support the individual to manage stress, and to provide effective lifestyle choices toward achieving balance. Adrenal support, nutritional counseling, mind/body techniques are very important here. So basic, yet so critical!
