Botanical Medicine

Homeopathy and Flower Essence Therapy

Homeopathy is a proven method of healing that was developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemman over 200 years ago. Homeopathic remedies address all aspects of a person and enhance the body’s ability to respond to stressors. Homeopathic remedies have the ability to shorten the duration of a disharmony and strengthen the body’s ability to heal from acute as well as chronic conditions.

Flower essences is yet another type of energy medicine used to help relieve mental or emotional stressors.

Hydrotherapy

This is a gentle and extremely effective treatment based on the use of hot and cold applications to the body to improve nutrition and elimination of toxins through the normalization of circulation throughout all tissues of the body. It is successfully used in digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory and immune issues.

Clinical Nutrition

Clinical nutrition is a foundational principle of Naturopathic Medicine. It is the practice of using specific foods for addressing a particular health complaint. Extensive research studies have shown that many medical conditions can be prevented and treated effectively with the use of food and nutritional supplements without the complications and side-effects of pharmaceuticals.

Carroll Food Intolerance Assessment

The Carroll Food Intolerance Assessment is an analysis involving electrical responses of blood cells to certain foods and food combinations that identify food groups you do not digest well. This is an invaluable tool to begin on the journey to health. Removing food intolerances from the diet can help reduce a wide variety of symptoms by improving digestion and absorption of the foods you eat as well as reducing stress/inflammation from the body.
