What to Expect on Your Healing Journey

“Your illness is a message. Your symptoms provide clear instructions for the care that your body needs to heal. You are Self-Healing.”    - Dr. Charley Cropley, N.D.


Naturopathic Philosophy

As a Naturopathic Doctor who has been practicing for over 40 years, I understand the biochemical and metabolic basis of disease. I specialize in root cause analysis and getting to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms and current state of health. You may think that you are doing everything you can to eat right, exercise, and take care of your health, but I will show you the real behavioral changes required to markedly improve your health and quality of life.

Scope of Service

After 40 years as a Primary Care Doctor, I no longer offer this service. I work as a specialist in conjunction with your current health care team. My focus is in Self-Healing which I have seen to be the most effective technique and the most neglected aspect in healthcare today.

I will work with you to discover the root cause of your illness. And we may need to do some testing. I will work with you in the education of vitalistic nutrition, fasting, and mental health practices that will restore health and balance to your immune system and begin to reverse your illness. My approach will restore your body's natural state of self healing. This working relationship is a collaboration, as we will navigate what comes up to surface each week delving deeper and deeper into the layers of healing.

  • Education, Training and Tools in the 4 Pillars of Naturopathic Medicine (Eating, Movement, Mental Health, Relationships)

  • Education in Vitalistic Nutrition and Fasting

  • Counseling in the Psychology of Self-Healing

Labs, Medicine & Supplements

In some circumstances, I do rely on lab testing. I will make referrals and recommendations when more specialized testing is necessary. As needed, I will collaborate with other doctors and I will work alongside your current pharmaceutical and/ or supplement protocol. Rarely will I recommend the addition of supplements.


In my Naturopathic approach I won’t simply treat your symptoms; I will take you on a journey to better health. 

  • Discover the root cause of your illness

  • You will learn to stop unintentionally increasing the severity of your symptoms

  • Avoid unnecessary, expensive and damaging surgeries and prescriptions

  • Learn how to create the level of health you desire with your own actions
