Naturopathic treatments may include the following:
Nutritional Counseling - You are what you eat so make sure you're eating for life. Dr. Andrea utilizes a variety of different diets and realizes there is no "one size fits all" diet. Diets are personalized to you. Testing is available for determining food sensitivities.
Nutritional Supplements/Herbs - Food is always the first focus but supplements can be extremely helpful in achieving optimum health. Dr. Andrea carries a wide variety of professional grade nutritional supplements and herbs and will discuss with you which ones would be best for you.
Homeopathy - Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. Homeopathic medicines – known as “remedies” – are made from natural sources (e.g., plants, minerals). Homeopathy is based on a rule of nature called the Law of Similars. This law states that "like cures like," or that a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause a similar sickness in a healthy person. Dr. Andrea utilizes classical homeopathy, cell salts and Bach Flower remedies.
Hydrotherapy - Hydrotherapy is a therapy that utilizes water to increase health. Dr. Andrea uses mostly constitutional hydrotherapy in her practice, which involves alternating hot and cold towels to the upper body. Treatments take about an hour and are very relaxing. Constitutional hydrotherapy stimulates blood and lymph flow, aiding in detoxification and increasing immune activity.
Energy Medicine - Dr. Andrea uses a variety of energy therapy techniques to help heal the body, mind, and spirit. Techniques can include, but are not limited to: gemstone acupoint therapy, chakra alignment, emotional releasing, reiki, etc. Energy healing activates the body's subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body's inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.
Energy medicine sessions are available as a stand alone appointment or by walk-in.
