PHILOSOPHY: What is healthy roots
As a Naturopath, my concern is the treatment of the whole person, rather than symptom management. The belief that we can secure our health by treating symptoms alone is a misconception. While palliation, the reduction of symptoms by treating the symptoms themselves, helps to lessen the symptoms, it does not address the underlying cause(s) of disease. It is when we begin to uncover the root cause of a disease, and address it, that we begin to transform our health.
Once we discover how to heal ourselves, we must learn how to maintain that health. I believe that health is dynamic; it requires ongoing effort over the course of our lives. Yet, the maintenance of health is often overlooked in today’s busy and fast-paced world. While we are symptom free, it is important to be proactive about maintaining our health so we don’t discover one day that we have a chronic disease.
A healthy life begins with healthy roots. Whether you have been diagnosed with a disease or interested in disease prevention, I will support you as your health transforms to an optimal state.
- Educate people on how to take health into their own hands
- Empower people to be open and unattached to the process of healing
- Hold space for people to tend to their roots, connect to their soul and continually grow
- Encourage people to create a sense of connection and purpose by building community
I am an avid believer in the healing process of the human body when given the right environment and opportunity. I trust in the human body’s innate healing abilities. I have seen this first hand from a wound healing to a baby being born. Yet I know that as humans we are at risk for being hurt, whether physically, mentally, spiritually or emotionally. It is my goal in working with you that I may help you find those parts of you that need healing, and give you the necessary tools for healing to take place.
Each person is an individual and this guiding principle helps me tailor treatment recommendations specifically to you. My goal is to help you achieve optimal health through the use of safe and effective natural health care. My experience working with both conventional and naturopathic doctors during my training allows me to provide you with the best treatment, medicine has to offer.
I provide on-going treatment recommendations for chronic health issues, as well as disease prevention strategies. My treatment goals focus on addressing the underlying cause of disease in addition to symptomatic relief. I enjoy seeing the whole family and welcome people of all ages to the clinic. I look forward to meeting you and helping you heal from the ground up.
I am a long time lover of plants and gardening, so when I am not in the office, I am in the dirt with my adoring husband Jeff and our daughter Kaylee. We enjoy the wonders of nature every opportunity we get. I am a big proponent of community and take every opportunity I can to be with friends and family whom I love and cherish. We love to go on road-trips to discover new and wondrous places, of which there are many.
