Naturopathic physicians have long known that true health is possible for everyone, and requires a patient-centered approach. I attended the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon because this philosophy mirrors my inner belief, and I believe Naturopathic Medicine is the most effective treatment for your individual needs. It is one of the core concepts of The Lourie Process.
Health from the bottom up
Naturopaths take what I call, “a bottom up” approach to health. What does that mean for you and how does it impact your health recovery?
Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease prevention and considers all aspects of your health. Treatment is specific, individualized to your medical condition, as well as lifestyle. Whether you are seeking treatment for infertility, PCOS, a trauma or mental health challenge, have Parkinson’s Disease or you are undergoing cancer treatment, I work with you to develop a program which may include:
- A nutritional program and supplementation tailored to your metabolic needs
- Emotional contribution and perspective of your illness and health
- Lifestyle changes – stress reduction and attitude shifts
When necessary, advanced diagnostic testing will be ordered to access the underlying metabolic factors that are contributing to your disease.
I am a graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregon. In addition to standard medical diagnostic training, there are extensive classes in clinical nutrition, botanical and herbal medicine, and lifestyle counseling. Naturopaths often collaborate with other health care providers, both referring patients to and accepting patient referrals from, colleagues throughout the medical field.
My focus is to create a solid foundation of healthy choices and practices; to support your body and psyche and keep you on the path of wellness. I have seen how – with attention and focus on you – we can work together to help you recover your health and restore your life.
