Earthen Medicine Offerings
- whole body - whole being - whole health -
Every health goal is unique and it helps to have a breadth of tools with which to reach it. That is exactly what naturopathic medicine offers; a guiding philosophy and an extensive tool kit to address any concern in any individual.
This philosophy is the foundation for every single one of my patient interactions.
I see you as more than just the sum of your parts, and thus treat your whole self - mind, body, being. My approach is not just about removing symptoms rather it is about learning what those symptoms communicate and addressing the root cause of the problem.
There is trust in the healing power of nature, you are always adjusting to create a state of balance in response to the (internal and external) environment, thus when given the right building blocks and freed of obstacles that balance will be your optimal health. The goal is for me to be your guide and teacher and to empower you to have an active role in your health. I will give you the tools you need to establish healthy living pattens, focusing to both restore health and prevent further illness.
Mind - Body Techniques
Even when the body feels good, if the mind is burdened down with thoughts of stress, worry, anger, depression, resentment, etc. an individual does not feel well. I utilize various mind body techniques, such as mindfulness exercises, breathing, journaling, meditation, guided visualization and body awareness, to help patients improve their emotional health and sense of well being.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
This hands on approach of subtle touch restores balance to the rhythmic flow of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal nerves. After a treatment patients often experience a deep sense of calm, balance, and centeredness. It is not uncommon for this therapy to help release pain long held in the body of both physical and emotional nature.
Homeopathy is a distinct medical art and science which employs tiny doses of natural medicines to stimulate the body's inborn healing capacity. Through an in depth interview process I will strive to gain an in depth understand of the entirety of a patient’s state. Then though analysis, I will recommend a single remedy that most accurately matches your state of being.
The number of food fads out in the world is overwhelming and the information from them is often contradictory. Yet, the food we eat is the building blocks our body uses to build itself from every day; this is why eating a balanced diet, and supporting your individual needs with food is very important. I will help you design a plan that works with your life, and is tailored to your needs. I will also support you in overcoming any obstacles that may arise in implementing that plan.
Herbs are both foods and medicines. They nourish the body by providing necessary vitamins and minerals. Herbs also possess numerous components which exert actions body processes, these components act synergistically and can help give the body what it needs to improve function and regenerate tissue. Trained in both traditional herbal formulations and the science behind them I will recommend herbs when necessary to help support the body or aid in the healing of an acute situations.
