“Health is Freedom”

This is my belief and my philosophy.   Health is key to freedom... the freedom to do what YOU want to do. Mentally and physically. Health isn’t about a lab test or a number, it is about being happy and having the ability and motivation to work towards and attain your goals. Whether this is running a marathon, having a baby, or playing with your grandchildren, I know that Natural Medicine can help.

My Journey to Naturopathic Medicine

Every day I am amazed by the human body!  I feel incredibly lucky to have the job I do. It is SO satisfying to HELP people change their heath and lives for the better. Over and over again I see people who have tried to find solutions with traditional medicine but never see any true improvement because the CAUSE of their illness was never addressed.

When I was finishing my PhD in England, working in a large busy hospital with very sick children, I had a ‘career and life crisis’. I had decided at the age of 16 that I would study nutrition and then become a doctor, but suddenly going to traditional medical school just didn’t seem like the right thing to do. It just didn’t make sense to me based on what I kept observing: the human body is much more than just a collection of symptoms that need to be ‘fixed’ with pills. Thankfully, a good friend asked me if I had considered Naturopathic Medicine. At that time I was not familiar with Naturopathic Medicine but as soon as I started my research I knew it was the PERFECT fit for me. Naturopathic Medicine is all about figuring out what is REALLY going on in the body, removing the cause of the disharmony and then supporting the body through the healing process. Because Naturopathic Physicians are trained in many different modalities, our tool belts are stocked! Herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, Chinese medicine... knowing how to use these different modalities allows me to create the BEST treatment plan for each and every person I see. Everyone is different, and no one treatment will work for everyone. But by working WITH the patient and solving the mystery of WHY they are ill, healing happens.

Naturopathic Medicine


Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic medicine that treats the person and not the disease. Using natural remedies to optimize the body’s own healing force, Naturopathic Medicine is effective for treating any condition as well as preventing illness.
Based on six healing principles, Naturopathic doctors search for the root cause of illness instead of only treating symptoms so that true healing can take place.


The six tenets of Naturopathic Medicine:

Primum no nocere - first, do no harm. This means that the most gentle and natural remedies will always be chosen first and that the suppression of symptoms will be avoided, since this can lead to the illness being pushed deeper into the body.

Vis medicatrix naturae - the healing power of nature. The body has an amazing inherent ability to maintain and restore health. Naturopathic doctors believe that their role is simply to facilitate the body’s own healing, using natural remedies and treatments.

In perturbato animo sicut in corpore sanitas esse non potest - treat the whole person. This principle is based on the fact that every person is a unique individual. All aspects of a person must be taken into consideration and addressed in order for healing to occur.

Tolle causam - identify and treat the cause. Rather than treating symptoms, which are signs from the body that illness is occurring, Naturopathic Medicine strives to find and treat the true underlying cause of disease.


Docere - doctor as teacher. Your medical care should be a joint venture between your doctor and yourself. Naturopathic Doctors educate patients about their health and what they need to do to heal.

Principiis obsta: sero medicina curatur - prevention. The true goal of Naturopathic medicine is to help patients remove any causes of disease and maintain a healthy, happy body in order to prevent illness.
