The Goal of Naturopathic Medicine is to find the cause of "dis-ease" in the body. Medicine is more curative when the cause is addressed rather than merely suppressing the symptoms of the disease. The Naturopath trusts the body's inherent wisdom and its ability to heal itself. Gentle, natural therapies such as homeopathy, nutrition, botanicals, counseling, and hydrotherapy can be used to help stimulate the self healing mechanisms in the body.

Homeopathic remedies are personalized to each individual. It is a powerful tool to help the body recognize where it might be stuck and to begin healing on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Homeopathic intakes require a deep understanding of the patient in order to match the right constitutional remedy. Consultations may take as long as 2 hours. A repertorization is then researched and studied by the doctor before prescribing. Homeopathy does not alter the natural biological processes of the body or have side effects.

It is safe and effective for all individuals.
