Unique Benefits of the Naturopathic Approach
My Unique Methods
I teach you to view your body’s problems not as a foreign and malevolent “illness or disease,” but rather as intelligent and purposeful expressions of your body. You will learn to relate to your body more as a person, rather than some unintelligent thing without feelings like a car.
Hormonal imbalances, a weak immune system or blown out adrenals are not the true cause of your problems. The root we are searching for is found in the ways you live your life and care for your body. I will teach you how to direct your own actions in a way that supports healing.
How I Work with You
I am an educator, first and foremost. I will teach you how to take care of yourself and how to stop creating the cycle of illness. I work with all forms of chronic disease and illness. Regardless of the name given to your illness I treat you as a totally unique person and I design a individualized program of care especially for you.
Your program includes education in the following areas.
- How to nourish your body using personally designed eating practices and fasting.
- How to build strength, flexibility, and endurance; with equal emphasis on how to deeply relax and sleep more soundly.
- How to think in ways that feel great and motivate you to take powerful actions to restore your health.
- How to communicate with all people in ways that build closeness, trust and real caring—listen deeply and compassionately and speak of your own experience authentically and kindly—so that others understand you and you too feel understood.
After our initial visit, my typical client will see me every other week, usually for 30 to 60 minutes. During each visit, you are given a specific lesson to study along with a practical assignment to do for the next two weeks.
In addition to individual instruction, I also offer group instruction through conference calls, live classes and support groups. This combination of office visits, personal and group instruction and support is remarkably effective. As you improve the ways you eat, think, and live, your health problems unfailingly improve.
