At an early age I was very interested in
herbal medicine because I grew up in farm country and I had two parents that
were really into gardening. So, in high school I researched herbal medicine
and that actually led me to naturopathic medicine. The reason I chose naturopathic
medicine was due to the ability to use various treatment modalities that the
earth has provided us. That is a core principle of naturopathic medicine which
is the healing power of nature. So, I utilize that in two ways. I teach my
patients on how to heal themselves because the body can heal itself under
the right circumstances. So, it’s using fresh water, healthy food choices, proper
sleep hygiene, and then I also utilize medicine that helps support their body
or distress organ systems such as vitamins minerals or botanical medicine.
So, this is what I enjoy doing every day in order to support my patients and
help them achieve optimal health
