We take a multifaceted approach to addressing mental health concerns including improving gut health, sleep, endocrine balance, and lifestyle factors.  We use a variety of tools including nutrition, botanical medicine, prescription drugs, and more to address each individual’s needs.

What is Integrative Mental Healthcare?

Integrative mental healthcare uses a whole body approach to mental health with a goal of discovering and treating the underlying cause of mental illness. It utilizes metabolic testing, neurotransmitter testing, dietary interventions, psychotherapy, botanical therapies and medications to create a personalized treatment plan for better wellness outcomes. Our providers can work as part of your healthcare team to treat:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

FAQs: Naturopathic Physicians

The following is an excerpt from the Princeton Review’s “Best 168 Medical Schools”

“After completion of standard premedical undergraduate coursework, a naturopathic physician attends a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an M.D. but also studies holistic and natural approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health). The naturopathic program includes two full years of supervised clinical training. Completion of optional residency is also available to some graduates. A naturopathic physician takes a rigorous national licensing examination so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.”
