Botanical medicine is the use of therapeutic plants to help treat illness. People have been using plants as medicine for thousands of years. We combine age-old wisdom with modern-day research to provide safe and effective plant-based therapy.
Homeopathic medicine uses very dilute doses of therapeutic substances to stimulate the body to heal. Similarly to how vaccines are small doses of pathogens designed to stimulate an immune response, homeopathic remedies encourage the body to eliminate pathogens, reduce inflammation and heal. This type of medicine is particularly helpful to pregnant women and to children because of its extremely gentle and safe nature.
Clinical nutrition is the branch of naturopathic medicine that focuses on changing the diet in a therapeutic way. This can mean eliminating foods from the diet that you may be sensitive to, or adding in foods that can help treat a specific condition.
Food sensitivities create large amounts of inflammation in the intestines. This inflammation separates the cells of the intestines, creating spaces for those inflammatory mediators to escape and travel throughout the body. This process can cause a number of symptoms including digestive concerns, headaches, chronic sinus infections, skin rashes, joint pain, etc.
As Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine”. A healthy diet can go a long way in preventing many chronic illnesses but the really powerful healthy food choices go far beyond prevention. Specific foods can actually treat current health concerns. For example, daily consumption of almonds and walnuts can lower cholesterol levels, extra virgin olive oil can help to reduce blood pressure, and ground flax seeds can help to balance hormones.
Nutraceuticals are isolated nutrients found in foods. These can be helpful because they can be incorporated into your diet more conveniently, and in higher doses, than by eating the foods from which they are sourced. Sometimes your body needs some nutrients in higher doses until balance is restored. Since nutraceuticals are derived from foods, they are often very safe. All neutraceuticals that our clinic uses are NPN Certified and doses recommended within the therapeutic range.
Some B vitamins are better absorbed, and more available to the body, when injected. Vitamin B12 injections are very useful for increasing B12 stores quickly so you feel better faster. Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include fatigue, weakness, PMS, dizziness, nausea and tingling in the fingers and toes.
