Botanical medicine, also known as herbal medicine, stretches back to ancient times. It can come in many different forms (teas, liquid extracts, pills, essential oils etc.) and have incredible therapeutic benefits on the body. Plants are the original pharmaceuticals - many medications are based on the molecular structure of plants, after all. Herbal medicine is a powerful, effective, and less toxic way to achieve powerful results.

Personalized Nutrition and Diets
I love working with foods in their fullest form. Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, happy meats and dairy (to name a few)… I am passionate about fermented, sprouted and traditional preparation techniques as gateways to wholesome and nourishing nutrition. Sometimes rigorous diets are called for; with time and a return to health, food should be fun!
Passed down through generations of naturopathic elders, the use of water therapeutically is one of our most treasured tools. There are a myriad of ways to use water by altering the temperature and delivery. Sitz baths, fomentations, constitutional hydrotherapy and steam inhalations are some of many examples. Water therapies leverage widening and constricting of blood vessel diameter, lymphatic drainage and nerve tissue to offer significant detoxification and metabolic support.
These are techniques that use awareness of physiology to guide change. The most simple is using breath. Other techniques build capacity to detect ‘felt experiences’ in the body. These techniques facilitate lifelong skill building.
IV's and injectables
IV nutrient therapy infuses vitamins, minerals and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and allowing for maximum absorption.
Allergy Desensitization (SLIT)
Sublingual Immunotherapy (or SLIT for short) is an alternative method of treating allergies and desensitizing a person to their allergies without using injections.
Perineural Injection Therapy
Nueral/Perineural, trigger point, and scar tissue therapy.
