What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic practitioners teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to strengthen the immune system. We view the patient as a complex, interrelated system (a whole person). Our goal is to craft comprehensive treatment plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural remedies to maintain approaches to maintain and restore health.
In our Health and Wellness Department, we will help your body regain and restore its natural function. By finding and removing the barriers such as poor diet, unhealthy habits and nervous system interference, you can enhance your body’s ability to heal itself.
We each have a unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and spiritual makeup. The holistic wellness practitioner knows that all these factors affect our health. Arianna will carefully tailor a health plan specifically to your needs.

You will then be seen by Arianna Anderson to be assessed individually through methods of testing and health history. After your first consultation your health will be categorized into a level of care and a plan for care will be reported to you in great detail. You will be prescribed supplementation and advised on dietary suggestions. One of the methods of testing that we utilize are as follows:
