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.
— Charley Cropley, N.D.

Scope of Service

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I understand the biochemical and metabolic basis of disease. My specialty is understanding how your disease process is caused and I teach you how to make the behavioral changes that are required in order to Heal.

  • Education in Vitalistic Nutrition and Fasting

  • Counseling in the Psychology of Self-Healing

  • Recommendations for improving exercise, rest and self care

  • Practical tools and resources for eating, thinking, moving and relating 

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 regenerative and self-healing functions. This relationship is a collaboration as we will navigate what comes up for you, and delve deeper into the layers of healing and restoring your vitality.

After 40 years of offering primary care, I am no longer offering this. I am a specialist. I work as a consultant in conjunction with your current health care team. My focus is on self-healing techniques which I have seen to be the most powerful and effective tool for regaining and maintaining excellent health.

Initial Visit

I take two full, one hour sessions to perform my initial evaluation. 

Why two sessions? Regardless of the name given to your illness I treat you as a totally unique person and I design an individualized program of care especially for you. I’ll inquire about your present health concerns, study your medical history, health history and health related behaviors to discover what brought you to your present state of concern.

I look for the obstacles you must overcome to improve your habitual ways of eating, thinking and healing. Gaining a thorough understanding of what type of treatment will most help you, generally takes us two visits. 

Labs, Medicine & Supplements

I will work alongside your current pharmaceutical and/ or supplement protocol. Rarely will I recommend the addition of supplements. In our sessions I will be focusing on vitalistic nutrition, fasting and the psychology of Self-Healing. This will improve your health no matter what illness you are facing. This work of Self-Healing is essential in recovery from any state of disease.

I do rely on lab testing. As needed, I will collaborate with other doctors. I will make referrals and recommendations when more specialized testing is necessary.

Most people have only medicine covered. I will work with you in the education of Self-Healing. The art and science of Self-Healing empowers you with the tools to change your health and change your life.

Unique Benefits

In my Naturopathic approach you will:

  • Discover the root cause of your illness
  • Develop peace of mind and positive self-talk
  • Gain strength, poise and grace in your physical body

  • Find emotional vibrancy, happiness and hope

  • 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 simply with your own actions, not with pills

  • Gain the knowledge needed to use your diet, exercise and mind to heal future health concern


Continuing Care

My typical client will see me for 30 to 60 minutes per visit, over a period of three to six months, depending on severity of health concerns. During each visit, you are given a specific lesson to study along with a practical assignment.

In addition to individual instruction, I also offer group instruction through conference calls, live classes and support groups. Using the 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.
