  • Traditional Naturopathy reviews the whole person, family, lifestyle, nutrition, and importantly, how Toxic Stress is disrupting YOUR health creating an imbalance, which leads to illness.  Naturopathy focuses on natural and non-invasive methods to help the body heal itself, and provides safe solutions when medicine doe not have a protocol or standard of care available, or the normal protocol does not work for the individual.  Naturopathy is generally not covered by insurance, however Health Savings Accounts can be used, and the individual decides the level of care and chooses the best options is best for them.
  • Traditional Western Medicine prescribe medications  and often use invasive testing to diagnose disease using protocols and standards of care required by your insurance, and insurance companies have specified benefits and requirements for your care under your physician and specialist.
