THERAPIES WE USE
THERAPIES WE USE
Our Naturopathic Doctors understand that you are a unique person with specific medical and life goals. Your individualized plan includes a combination of treatment strategies that support your body’s innate capacity for detoxifying, regenerating and healing.
Think of your food choices as medicine you take, three times a day. The nutritional choices you make are the single most controllable aspect of your health. Our naturopathic doctors are highly trained in nutritional therapy and will help you find the best diet for you in your current state of health.
When you meet with your naturopathic doctor, your diet is carefully assessed. The plan she develops for you includes detailed suggestions tailored to address your most important concerns. When necessary, we employ lab testings to identify allergies and sensitivities that may otherwise be missed. There are times when extra nutritional support is needed as you transition to your optimal diet. Your naturopathic doctor works with you to select the highest quality nutritional supplements that are best suited to your needs.
Daily life is filled with potential stress. The environment is no longer the pristine natural resource it once was. We may struggle to cope with the emotional pressures of modern living. Our goal is to help you develop daily habits that support your recovery in the face of life’s inevitable challenges.
From stress and behavioral management techniques, to ways in which you can reduce your daily exposure to pollutants, get enough sleep and develop an active routine, naturopathic lifestyle coaching helps you develop the resources you need to be at your best.
Physical Activity and Exercise
Exercise is unquestionably essential to your health and well being. Your naturopathic doctor will help you develop an individualized exercise plan that is tailored to your needs and goals. This may include suggestions and referrals for cardiovascular and resistance exercise, yoga, Tai Qi, physical therapy and body work.
This ancient healing modality helps treat pain, hormone imbalance, insomnia, anxiety, and various chronic diseases.
Acupuncture done by Healing Tree NDs is a constitutional acupuncture where the patterns of imbalances in the whole body are assessed and treated accordingly.
The use of plants and herbs as medicine is one of the most ancient forms of healing known to humankind.
Your naturopathic doctor at Healing Tree is an expert in the use of botanical medicine. She creates individualized prescriptions for you using high-quality, sustainably sourced herbs. Over time, your prescriptions will change as your body starts regaining its homeostasis.
Herbal remedies can be dispensed as teas, in tincture form (concentrated extraction in alcohol or glycerin), in capsules or in tablets.
Based on the Hippocratic principle that ‘like cures like,’ homeopathy is a gentle yet powerful energetic form of medicine that matches the vibrational patterns of an individual. A well-chosen remedy assists the body in carrying out its natural restorative processes.
One of the most advanced forms of homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage is a gentle yet very deep healing modality. Different from a cleanse or detoxification protocol, biotherapeutic drainage works much more deeply on cellular and energetic levels to enhance the natural routes of elimination. This restores the functioning of cells, organs and body systems.
With so many different “detoxes” promoted in books and in the media, choosing the one that is most appropriate for your needs can be challenging. Our naturopathic doctors will help you avoid harm by creating a customized detoxification protocol that is best suited to both your daily reality and your medical needs.
Coaching/Mindfulness Meditation/Guided Imagery
Our well being is deeply tied to how we perceive our reality. Meditation and guided imagery help you to engage with unconscious patterns and become more mindful and aware of them to cause changes from within. As you learn how to deeply relax and understand your old patterns, your inner wisdom emerges. By understanding and shifting the mechanics of your own thoughts, profound change becomes possible.
