how does a naturopath work?

A Naturopathic evaluation is is not a specific technique, as much as it is an approach at looking at the individual as a whole and not just a collection of ailments. Symptoms that seem unconnected, when looked through a Naturopathic lens, are often part of a continuum of one underlying cause. That is why addressing the cause often cures many problems at the same time.

 

Hydrotherapy and body work

Vitality is restored, blood flow is normalized, and adhesions of the fascia around the muscles and toxins accumulated in tissue can be removed by the application of hydrotherapy and bodywork. These techniques can improve mobility and make you feel more vibrant. Hydrotherapy is a time-honored technique that utilizes the healing properties of water. This is a 1 hour long treatment that uses alternating hot and cold applications to the torso and back with gentle pulsed sine-wave. It greatly improves circulation, digestion, and immune dysfunction. Constitutional Hydrotherapy can help stimulate detoxification and improves recovery from many acute and chronic illnesses.

Detoxification

It is impossible to live in today's polluted environment without accumulating undesirable toxins. By the simple act of breathing, eating, and using technology, we are exposed to multiple sources of toxic contaminants. Depending on our degree of exposure, we can all benefit from several forms of detoxification.

Blood Type and Genotype Diet

Much controversy persists over which "diets" work or don't work. This is because there is not one diet that is perfect for all people. Instead individual genetic differences predispose us to thrive on certain foods and decline on others. Diets closest to how our ancestral relatives ate, take these differences into consideration to reduce the inflammation caused by improper foods.

Lifestyle Counseling 

The manner that we interact with our environment, including the way we walk, talk, breath, communicate, eat, play, work or virtually any other activity, all shape the way our bodies and brain develop over time. No one can escape daily repetitive stress, but we can take preventative measures to avoid predictable issues that cause illness.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a practice that originated thousands of years ago and has continued to evolve to the present day. In addition to the use of very thin needles, acupuncture uses many other techniques including: tuina massage, cupping, qigong, diet and facial rejuvenation.

Genetic Analysis

Our genes contain the code for not only what makes us humans, but what makes us different from anyone else. These differences can be analyzed using new computer software to see where diet, herbs and lifestyle changes can be used to offset the genetic time-bombs we have inherited.

Sports Related Injury

Exercise is necessary as a part of all healthy lifestyles, however it can incur injuries even in the most careful participants. We provide many techniques to address muscle, tendon and skin injuries, as well as some preventative measures to lessen future injuries.

Neurotransmitter, Adrenal and Other Testing

We employ many laboratory and in-house tests to assess chronic issues that are not detected by typical insurance based coverage. These are affordable tests that can be used to help direct the correct Naturopathic therapies.
