We can compare our nation's financial situation to an illness. It could be a slow, chronic process or we may spike a very rapid fever. Although painful, I hope that America's economic illness is swift and make us stronger in the end. As our nation weathers the fever of this financial crisis, we're forced to rethink the way we supply, receive and fund health care.

A Naturopathic physician is a primary care provider lisenced to provide many family practice services similar to a conventional medical doctor. Naturopathic physicians have a full formulary of pharmaceutical medications which we are trained to employ judiciously when necessary. Examples include antibiotics, antifungals, bio-identical hormones, blood pressure medications and pain management medications. We can provide minor surgery, IV therapy and routine examinations and lab work. What makes a Naturopathic Physician different is our training in holistic medicine and our expertise in modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, compounded prescription medications, homeopathy, spinal manipulation, and environmental medicine.
