Allergy Testing and Treatment

Botanical Medicine

Herbal MedicineModern Botanical Medicine is based on traditional use of plant extracts and modern biochemical analysis. Herbal extracts are the pharmaceuticals of the ancients and they tend to be gentler and have fewer side effects than modern pharmaceuticals. A majority of pharmaceuticals are based on herbal extracts, only they have been isolated and amplified.

 

Homeopathy

HomeopathyUsing very diluted herbal, mineral, and animal extracts, this form of alternative medicine can be used to treat every ailment from the physical to biochemical to emotional. When treating infants and pregnant women, it can be the only safe treatment option.

 

Laboratory Diagnostics

Lab testsAny blood test you can get from your Medical Doctor, your Naturopathic Physician can also order. Naturopathic Doctors can also order tests that a Medical Doctor cannot under MSP restrictions, including food sensitivity and salivary hormone panels. In house allergy testing is also available.

 

Neural Therapy

NeuralBy using injection of analgesics into tight muscles or scar tissue neural therapy can help many people greatly reduce or eliminate chronic pain conditions that have been very difficult to treat. Physicians have been using similar techniques since the 1920s to alleviate pain where other treatments have failed. The analgesics break up scar tissue and relax muscles to allow for better blood flow and mobility.

 

Nutrition

NutritionHippocrates said "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." We have all been told what we should be eating. It doesn't have to be complicated but it is critical because food is often a significant contributor to our current health status. Individualizing the diet to particular health problems can create the most important changes in a person’s overall health.

 

Prolotherapy

ProloProlotherapy is short for proliferative therapy. It works by stimulating wound repair in specific weakened tissues by injecting solutions that stimulate connective tissue growth. Forms of this therapy have been used for more than 2,500 years and it is an essential part of many challenging chronic pain and instability cases.

Spinal Manipulation

ManipulationTrained by Chiropractors and Naturopathic Physicians,we learn and use the same techniques as a Chiropractor (but for legal reasons it is called Spinal Manipulation). It is amazing how many people adapt to limited mobility from chronic pain. Though treatment is usually not curative in the first session, repeated corrections and physical therapy help many to move more freely and with less pain.
