“I have a passion for naturopathic medicine because it combines the best of the science and art of medicine. I have been trained in the same basic sciences and diagnostic techniques as other medical doctors. I have learned how to heal using plants, diet, lifestyle, nutrition, vitamins, counseling, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and physical medicine. I work with the philosophy of the healing power of nature. In other words, the body inherently attempts to be healthy. I am here to guide you on that journey to greater health by supporting the body in its healing process, in whatever way is needed. I also treat the whole of the individual. You are greater than the sum of your parts, and the whole (body mind and spirit) needs to be looked at to achieve optimum health.”
