Our Focus is You

We treat you — the whole patient — not just your symptoms.
Functional Blood Chemistry

Many people who seek medical care do not always have a clinically identifiable disease. They are told they have “normal” labs – normal when compared to the rest of the sick population, but a long way from optimal health. Functional medicine doctors use optimal ranges to detect physiological changes. Evaluating these chemistry shifts enables us to treat the underlying cause of the dysfunction long before there is a diagnosable disease.

Nutrition and Supplementation

When we feed our body “empty” foods that supply no value other than to fill our bodies, our bodies start to malfunction. When we eat a clean, healthy diet, we may be stacking the deck in our favor, but there are other uncontrollable factors that may disrupt the process of digestion and absorption. When this happens we must supply the body the required nutrients through supplementation or nutritional IVs.

Intravenous Nutritional Therapy

A method of delivering a combination of high dose vitamin C, a mixture of B vitamins, and a mixture of minerals into the bloodstream. It is impossible to attain the high levels of nutrients through oral supplementation that can be administered intravenously. This method bypasses the gut, delivering nutrients directly into the bloodstream in an unaltered form that is very well tolerated, with minimal or no side effects.

  • What is Naturopathic Medicine?

    Naturopathic medicine stems from traditional healing methods, principles, and practices, and combines the wisdom of nature with the thoroughness of modern science. Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention, as well as comprehensive diagnosis and treatment.

  • The role of the Naturopathic Physician is to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing environment, both within the body and without. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, a naturopathic physician helps facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.
