1) Naturopathic Treatments
Based on an assessment of your total health picture, we will provide individualized treatment plans from the following treatment options:
Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture
Homeopathic medicine is a transformational medicine based on the principals of "like cures like", and “minute dosing”. It was developed by a German physician named Hahnaman in the late1700s. Dr. Samuel Hahneman discovered that substances that cause specific symptoms in large doses could cure those very symptoms in minute doses. For example, large doses coffee when taken by a healthy individual will produces symptoms of anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and sweating. Yet, when very small doses of coffee are diluted in water it helps ease the symptoms in an individual experiencing those very symptoms. Homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances of mineral, plant ,and animal sources. They work by stimulating the body's self-healing abilities.
Botanical (herbal) medicine
Combination of Local and foreign plants, plant extracts, and tinctures are used to favorably alter and balance body chemistry and physiology The use of herbs as healing agents dates back to the beginnings of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology.
Clinical Nutrition is concerned with the relationship between diet and health. Treatment includes use of special diets to balance the nutritional needs of the body as well as nutritional supplements (vitamins, minerals, co-factors and enzymes) to balance the deficiencies common to each condition.
Bowen is a remarkable, gentle hands-on neuromuscular technique developed in the early 1900s by the Australian TOM bowen. Bowen technique encourages a healing response that addresses structural and neruromuscular problems such as scoliosis and musculoskeletal pain from overuse or injury and other conditions that involve smooth muscle (small muscles in the body that are not under conscious control), such as angina, asthma, bedwetting, incontinence, TMJ problems, migraines respond positively to Bowen therapy.
IV therapy is the administration of specific vitamins, minerals, and other cofactors via the veins (intravenous). It has been shown that intravenous administration can raise the nutrient levels in the blood higher than regular oral vitamin therapy. This therapy has been shown to be beneficial in treatment of aging symptom, heart disease, and as a conjunctive treatment in cancer and chemo.
The word Chelation is derived from the latin root meaning to CLAW. Chelation is the use of specific agents such as EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS to chelate (bind and remove) heavy metals and toxins out of the tissue. Heavy metals such as Lead and Mercury, Cadmium and Arsenic, block biological enzymes in the body. Chelation is a treatment used in individuals who have a tendency to acccumulate these metals.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
This modality is based on balancing the flow of qi (energy) through the meridian pathways in the body. It involves use of acupuncture needles and oriental herbs to harmonize the imbalances present in disease conditions. Acupuncture is more than a tool for pain management. It has beneficial effects in regulating hormonal cycles, treatments of addition and nerve regeneration and more.
