Commonly treated conditions

Natural Medicine encourages the body to heal itself. This is why all health conditions can be safely treated by a Natural Medicine practitioner, who is trained using natural medicines.


Digestive Conditions

Conditions such as IBS, SIBO, constipation, reflux, gas/bloating, heartburn, stomach ulcers, chron's, colitis and chronic diarrhea have been successfully treated with natural medicine. Holistic practitioners believe that health begins in the gut!



Natural medicine has proven to be very effective in alleviating allergies. Working through the immune and digestive system dramatically improves the symptoms of allergies.



Out of balance hormones can cause PMS symptoms. Diet, stress, genetics and exercise all greatly affect hormone levels. Herbal medicine can easily correct hormonal imbalances.



The pain of arthritis is contributed to by accumulating toxins circulating in the blood stream. By cleansing and detoxifying the body and strengthening the immune system arthritis can be eradicated.


Skin Conditions

Many skin conditions are mediated by an over active immune system and a poorly functioning digestive system. Resulting inflammation in the skin commonly causes conditions like eczema, psoriasis and allergic skin conditions.



Fluctuating hormones can cause the symptoms commonly seen in menopause such as hot flashes, depression, insomnia, fatigue, mood swings, headaches and more. Herbal medicine can effectively re-balance these hormones and gently support this life transition.


Low Energy

Fluctuating energy levels are an indication of adrenal burnout. Stress, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, toxins and allergies can over-stimulate the adrenal glands. This stimulation leads to fatigue, sleep disorders, weight gain and lowered immunity. Effective treatment is aimed at restoring the adrenal glands through the use of herbs and nutrients.


AutoImmune Conditions

Autoimmune conditions occur when the body's natural defense system cannot tell the difference between its own cells and foreign cells and mistakenly attack normal cells. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases that affect a wide range of body parts. The goal of natural medicine is to discouver the root cause and heal the body completely. Comprehensive testing and medically guided nutrition plans are the most effective way to approach an autoimmune condition. 


Weight Loss

Through nutrition and lifestyle counseling optimal weight loss has been successfully achieved. Supportive herbs and nutrients help to facilitate the process.


Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is also known as Painful Bladder Syndrome is a debilitating condition that affects the integrity of the lining of the bladder. Symptoms include pain, frequency, urgency, burning, bloating and can often cause depression and anxiety. There are many root causes of IC that can be healed and lead to the complete elimination of symptoms.
