I love working with people and helping them on their journey of health! I believe that the doctor’s role is simple: to lend a helping hand when needed and to be a guide through physical, emotional, and spiritual obstacles when things get stuck. Even with the best of efforts, it is easy for us to get lost in our own health problems. Everyone needs guidance at some point, and my job is to be there for you. I believe that the time spent with a practitioner should be time spent establishing vitality and promoting happiness, and everything else is secondary to that. It is so easy to overlook this in modern medicine.
As a naturopathic physician and a licensed acupuncturist I have a very holistic approach to health and disease. I believe that our body is an intricate and interconnected system, and should be treated as such. I consider myself a generalist in practice because I treat most conditions. I view disease as much more than a collection of independently existing symptoms, and thus I believe that it can be both artificial and less efficacious to limit treatment to specific symptomatology without addressing the whole body and other areas of imbalance in the process. This being said, I find that I can be particularly helpful with the following:
I use a wide variety of modalities and techniques in my practice because I believe that one size does not fit all:
One of my biggest passions is minerals and their inverse relationship to heavy metal toxicity. This is a particularly pertinent topic in our modern, polluted world. Minerals are so fundamentally important to our biochemistry that I believe that it is virtually impossible to be healthy without first wiping the slate clean and establishing a healthy balance of these elements in our bodies. Creating this balance is much easier said than done though. I believe that there are emotional and energetic reasons for not absorbing essential minerals in our diet and instead we take on heavy metal toxicity in their place to reinforce our maladaptive patterns. I strive to help correct those energetic and emotional imbalances and support the body in a natural way as it readjusts its mineral/metal equilibrium and realigns the physical body with the spiritual plane.
At the end of the day, I believe that the body is much smarter than we all give it credit for. I believe that an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure and that removing obstacles to recovery is the best form of medicine out there because it gives the body a chance to heal itself!
