You can remember a time before you were in pain, but it seems like long time ago. You have been to see lots of doctors, but you have not gotten a diagnosis that explains all of your symptoms or any treatment that has given you real relief.
You’re interested in alternative medicine, and have scoured the internet for solutions to the health concerns you are dealing with. There is a lot of information out there, and you are feeling confused and overwhelmed.
You’ve been to see many different practitioners, but always leave feeling like only a part of what’s going on for you has been addressed.
You and your family have some minor (or major) health concerns, and you would like to treat them in a way that is as natural and safe as possible, as well effective. You could use a little help figuring out how to do this.
You feel anxious or depressed more often than you’d like to. You would rather not use medications to treat this, or you have been using the medications and they are not working well enough.

If you are like most people, you are not quite comfortable in your body. You have at least one health complaint that prevents you from feeling your best. Your are frustrated because the discomfort and pain that you are in limits what you can do in life, and it becomes exhausting just managing your symptoms.
People often get caught in the conventional healthcare system that only offers a quick fix. More and more people become dependent on pharmaceuticals, just to get through the day. But we know that most drugs only mask the issue and often cause side effects that then need to be addressed.
You decide to try alternative medicine. You search the internet and try various diets and nutritional supplements. Now you have a cabinet full of supplements you don’t really take, are confused about what you should be eating, and you are still not feeling good.
You may have also been to see alternative medicine practitioners, who recommend various treatments, but are not able to advise you on how they might interact with the medication you are currently taking. Now you are even more confused and financially frustrated.
When you are sick or in pain, you tend to reach for the quick fix, and look towards medications as the immediate solution. While medications can be necessary, taking them without understanding the root of your cause of your symptoms will not allow you to truly heal. This is also true for herbal and nutritional supplements. Many people feel they need to choose between conventional and alternative medicine, and therefore end up with a multitude of therapies and practitioners that are not working together. This can make you feel scattered, depleted, and still not any closer to health.
You need an integrated approach that addresses the root cause of your discomfort and pain. You need a treatment where all the parts (diet, herbs, medications, acupuncture etc.) are working together to create profound and lasting change.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist and Craniosacral practitioner, I offer my patients a comprehensive treatment strategy that relieves symptoms, while addressing the root cause to create lasting results.
