About Us


Naturopathic medicine, or Naturopathy, uses the healing power of nature  to return a patient to health by supporting the body's own healing abilities. At the Naturopathic Medical Clinic, our emphasis is on prevention of disease and patient education, while treating both acute illness and chronic conditions. We aim to empower individuals to make lifestyle changes necessary for optimal health by supporting the body, mind, and spirit.


Our practice is contracted with many insurance companies. Even if you do not have alternative medicine coverage on your insurance plan, several companies are covering our services under the Affordable Care Act, Non-Discrimination Clause. Contact us for more information.
