Echinacea flowerBotanical Medicine

Plant substances are powerful medicines which address a variety of problems simultaneously with minimal likelihood of side effects.

Clinical Nutrition

Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements than they can by other means, with fewer complications and side effects. Naturopathic physicians use diet, natural hygiene, fasting, and nutritional supplementation in their practices.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of "like cures like." Clinical observation indicates that it works on a subtle, yet powerful, energetic level, gently acting to promote healing on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.

Mind/Body Medicine

Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness. Counseling, nutritional balancing, stress management, flower essences, biofeedback, and other therapies are used to help patients heal psychologically.

Minor Surgery

Naturopathic physicians do in-office minor surgery, including repair of superficial wounds and removal of foreign bodies, cysts, and other superficial lesions.

Naturopathic Obstetrics/Midwifery

Prenatal and postnatal care using modern diagnostic techniques is combined with midwifery knowledge. The naturopathic approach strengthens healthy body functions to assist in a more enjoyable pregnancy and birth experience.

Classical Chinese Medicine

Classical Chinese medicine is a holistic system of medicine which combines the art and science of human care developed over millennia. The study of classical Chinese medicine involves expanding one's concept of science in order to gain new insights into health and healing.

Physical Medicine

Naturopathic medicine has its own methods of therapeutic manipulation of soft tissue, muscles, bones, and spine. NDs also use ultrasound, diathermy, exercise, massage, water, heat and cold, and gentle electrical therapies.
