How is working with a Naturopathic Doctor different?

"Naturopathic physicians combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing methods, principles and practices, naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention as well as giving the body what it needs to heal. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body's inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopathic physician's role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.

Naturopathic physicians work in private practices, hospitals, clinics and community health centers. NDs practice throughout the United States and Canada. Qualified naturopathic physicians undergo rigorous training before they become licensed health-care practitioners.

Initial consults last 60-75 minutes, 

How often do I need a consult?

I consult with clients, on average, once per month in the beginning of our working relationship, and as time goes on and your health improves, our visits will become less frequent. Most clients happily graduate to an "as-needed" schedule of visits within 6 months, and we have many who have returned years after their last visit due to some other health concern developing.

Are there any additional expenses that I should be aware of?

Not included in the consults will be any specific supplement reommThe largest investment you will make in our work together will likely be the nutritional supplements that I will recommend you use to facilitate your restoration of health and healing. Supplements can be a substantial investment, regardless of quality or potency as evidenced by some very expensive multi-level marketing products that may tout the latest "magic" nutrient, but contain woefully inadequate doses.

We take great care to choose and/or formulate highly effective supplements containing therapeutic doses of biologically available nutrients. We are able (through our education, experience, and expertise), to discern quality, potency, synergistic formulations, bioavailability, and whether important standards are met by the manufacturing facilities.

Because of the care we take to keep up with the latest information that impacts the quality of the supplements we recommend, we insist that my clients purchase their supplements from distributors I recommend. We must know that your progress or lack thereof is related to your following our recommendations.

If you are purchasing your supplements from online stores other than those we give you access to, you may very well be purchasing counterfeit (yes, they look just like the real thing), expired, or spoiled products that have been stored in conditions that cause the ingredients to decompose. Call to learn more.

The second largest investment you likely will make in our work together will be for functional medicine testing. This determines your current state of health in different areas such as adrenal function, your microbiome and gut health, thyroid function, genetic testing to determine your individual challenges, and other functional medicine panels that conventional doctors typically do not do.
