Naturopathic Medicine


Heal your body, naturally. I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to healing. The human body is made up of the mind, body, and spirit. All three must be in working order so that optimal health is achieved. I am a state-licensed naturopathic doctor and have completed 4-year residential naturopathic medical school training. 


Health Tip:

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is a powerful way of supporting our body's natural healing processes. Check out Whole-food-based multivitamins and minerals: JuicePlus+  for more information on bridging the gap between diet and nutrient needs. This is my personal favorite. I look forward to taking JuicePlus daily!
