Functional Nutrition

Food as Medicine

"Functional Nutrition emphasizes the importance of high quality foods and phytonutrient diversity to address clinical imbalances and move individuals toward the highest expression of health. Advanced nutrition assessment and a thorough Functional Medicine based history leads to a personalized therapeutic intervention created to promote optimal health and prevent diet- and lifestyle-related disease."

Naturopathic Medicine

Primary Care & Specialist Care

Naturopathic medicine offers a unique approach to preventing and treating illness. Prevention focuses on nutrition, lifestyle and stress management. Treatment balances herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, acupuncture and conventional pharmaceuticals where necessary. Naturopathic doctors strive to find the root cause of illness and treat patients in a personalized manner.


Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture & Herbs

As ancient systems of healing dating back to 200 BCE, acupuncture and Chinese medicine have proven their value and effectiveness as time-honored approaches to wellness and treatment of illness.  Acupuncture has been proven to be effective for acute and chronic pain, stress management, headaches, insomnia, hormonal imbalance, digestive disturbances and more!

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

- Thomas Edison
