This site is an ongoing collection of recipes I cherish and information I have come across in my studies while at Naturopathic medical school.

WHAT IS A NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIAN?

A NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIAN IS A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN THAT HAS TRAINED IN A 4 YEAR ACCREDITED MEDICAL SCHOOL AND PASSED THE STATE BOARD EXAMINATIONS. THEY ARE HERE WITH INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENTS TO HELP YOU WITH BOTH ACUTE AND CHRONIC CONDITIONS - FROM A "COLD" TO KNEE PAIN TO DIABETES.

THEY ARE HERE TO ADVISE, TO COUNSEL, AND TO GET YOU THE CARE YOU NEED, WHETHER DIRECTLY FROM THEM OR A REFERRAL TO A SPECIALIST. THEY CAN BE YOUR FIRST POINT OF CONTACT IN THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM AND A STEADY POINT OF CONTACT THAT YOU CAN RETURN TO WHEREVER YOU MIGHT BE IN YOUR STAGE OF LIFE AND VITALITY.

NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE IS ROOTED IN A PHILOSOPHY THAT BELIEVES THAT YOUR BODY KNOWS HOW TO HEAL ITSELF AND A DOCTOR'S JOB IS TO HELP FACILITATE YOUR BODIES OWN NATURAL HEALING RESPONSE USING THE LEAST FORCE INTERVENTION POSSIBLE. THAT DOES NOT SIMPLY MEAN SWITCHING A PHARMACEUTICAL FOR AN HERB BUT RATHER USING BOTH OF THESE STRATEGICALLY, AND WITH MANY OTHER TOOLS TO FACILITATE AND EMPOWER YOU TO MAKE THE CHANGES YOU WANT TO SEE IN YOUR HEALTH.  I HOPE TO SHIFT THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR BODY AND THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM, AWAY FROM A DISEASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND TOWARDS A COLLECTIVE THAT PROMOTES AND REWARDS HEALTH. COME IN FOR MAINTENANCE, FOR EARLY DETECTION, FOR PREVENTION.
