Naturopathic Medicine & Nutrition
Naturopathic medicine restores health by respecting nature, science, and using interventions that do the least harm. Because food is a key foundation of health, nutrition is emphasized. We believe different diets work for different people, constitutions, and conditions - therefore we make recommendations according to individual needs.
Herbs are superfoods and are a step-up from basic nutrition. They are traditionally ingested as a decoction (strong tea). Since we are trained in both Western and Chinese Herbalism, we may suggest Western herbs, Chinese herbs, or even both as we deem fit. These days you can still drink your herbs as a tea, but they also come in the form of powders, pills, tinctures, or syrups.
