Our bodies are designed for health. If we provide the building blocks needed and remove the obstacles to cure we see the body move from a state of disease back into balance and health. Unfortunately the society that we live in gives us many opportunities to move out of balance. The body needs proper nutrition, clean water, clean air, and healthy relationships with the people and the surrounding environment. When we move too far out of balance, there are many therapy options to assist in returning to a state of balance.
Proper Nutrition is vital to a healthy body. Without the proper building blocks needed to create new cells, repair damage, and remove toxins we are much more susceptible to wear and tear as well as disease.

Botanical Medicine is an excellent use of the healing power of nature to support, assist and rebuild the body in times of disease. This is the modality that brought me to Naturopathic Medicine and one that I enjoy because it is hands-on. Herbs can be used as first aid remedies as well as providing long-term healing effects. I enjoy the many aspects of herbal medicine, therapeutic uses of those herbs. There are many ways to benefit from the therapeutic benefits of herbs. Herbs can be used topically in oils, salves, soaps, lotions and poultices or internally as capsules, tinctures or teas. The possibilities are endless with these amazing plants.
Homeopathy was developed in the 1800s by German doctor Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on the law of similars which states that ‘like cures like hence the name homeopathy which literally means ‘similar disease’. A substance that produces certain symptoms in a healthy person, when used homeopathically, will cure an ill person with those same symptoms. The origins of most homeopathic remedies are from plants, animals, and minerals. This therapy can be used to treat acute and chronic conditions and is individualized to each patient.
Mind/Body Medicine covers many therapies such as EFT, Biofeedback, and meditation. Stress is a common component in modern life, but it is very harmful to the body. Stress management is an important skill in our overworked, rushed society since stress makes most existing health issues worse. Our attitude, mental state, and emotional state plays a large part in our health and our satisfaction and enjoyment of this life.
The Emotion Code and The Body Code were developed by Dr. Brad Nelson. When we experience an intense emotion we may not be able to fully process and release the energy that comes with that emotion. Using the energy meridians as laid out in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Nelson has developed a method to clear these trapped emotions. Doing this can release physical symptoms as well as mental and emotional symptoms. The Body Code uses the techniques in The Emotion Code to provide the ability to find and clear many other imbalances. Once these have been cleared you will feel vital, alive and joyful and experience improved health, relationships, abundance and more.
