Homeopathy is a comprehensive, holistic and individualized approach that supports healing in a very profound and lasting manner. Homeopathic remedies can be taken alongside pharmaceutical medications, as needed. You can read more about this modality on the “Homeopathy” Page.
Naturopathy uses customized herbal formulas, nutritional recommendations, dietary supplements, flower essences, hydrotherapy and lifestyle recommendations to support healing and to promote a healthy lifestyle. You can read more about this modality on the “Naturopathic Medicine” Page.
Orthomolecular Medicine or megavitamin therapy, involves the use of select nutrients in high doses to effect changes biochemically. In mental health, these nutrients can be used to positively change neurotransmitter levels and function. Dr. Abram Hoffer’s instrumental research in the field showed that those suffering from certain mental illnesses may have larger requirements for specific nutrients. Substantial progress can be seen when these nutrients are administered in large doses on a regular basis.
Chronotherapy, the treatment and balancing of circadian or biological rhythms , is important for everyone, but takes on a much more critical role in the treatment of those suffering from mental illness (particularly bipolar). I offer a variety of tools, techniques and treatment options to support stable circadian rhythms and in turn, more stability for those suffering from bipolar disorder, depression and seasonal affective disorder. You can read more about this modality on the “Chronotherapy” Page.
Addiction Resources: For those seeking help with substance abuse or other addictions, I offer support, counsel and treatment (when appropriate). I welcome talking with family members of those suffering from addiction to help them in navigating their treatment options.
As one moves beyond the addiction phase and into recovery, naturopathic therapies have much to offer. Standard recovery programs do not generally provide support and healing to the liver, adrenal glands and nervous system. Nutritional, herbal and supplemental support can make a significant difference in healing and recovering from addiction. Hydrotherapeutic treatments are also employed in restoring health.
