What does Naturopathic Medicine entail
+ how can it help me?


recognized as one of the original systems of medicine

Naturopathy offers safe, effective patient-centered care that is a vital part of healthcare in the twenty-first century

Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process.

The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

  1. The healing power of nature
  2. Identify + Treat the Cause 
  3. First do no harm
  4. Doctor as teacher 
  5. Treat the whole person 
  6. Prevention 

Naturopathic practice includes the following diagnostic and therapeutic modalities: clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing, nutritional medicine, botanical medicine, naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy), public health measures, hygiene, counseling, minor surgery, homeopathy, acupuncture, prescription medication, intravenous and injection therapy, and naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth). 

Depending on where the physician is located + licensed, there will be a scope of practice they must abide to.

The body has the innate ability to heal itself when given the right resources and support

As my mentor Dr. Sensenig would say,

“when you get out of your own way.”

The function of the vitalist Naturopathic physician

To utilize treatments that remove obstacles to healing and stimulate, support, assist and enhance the natural healing process.

Vitalistic Naturopathic physicians see symptoms as something not to be feared, rather to be used as clues of imbalance by the body. Symptoms are messengers and should not be suppressed, except in extreme cases.

Naturopathic medicine can treat a wide array of health concerns!

Our doctors see success stories each and every day when truly working on the patients root cause of illness and support them mind, body and spirit.

Naturopathic Medicine can help you


You are what you eat; but more accurately, you are what you digest. One person’s food is another person’s poison, therefore finding the ideal diet for YOU is essential for a healthy body and especially a happy gut.

There is no ‘One diet fits all’ because we are so unique.

We must listen to the divine wisdom our body offers us, however we must take the time to listen. We can help you listen.


Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ also called the ‘law of similar’

Samuel Hahnemann, a German doctor discovered that illness could be treated with very small amounts of the substance that, in larger quantities, caused it.

Fascinating, huh?!

Homeopathy is designed to treat the whole person, taking into account their mental +physical symptoms + their personality.

These remedies can have profound effects on many different symptoms/health  conditions a patient presents with (acute or chronic).

These remedies work on restoring the patient’s health and mind back to homeostasis.

Homeopathy is safe, effective and low-cost. It can be used in combination with RX medications, if needed.

Our practitioners are trained in homeopathy and with an intake, they can determine your individualized homeopathic remedy that fit YOUR unique self.

Our practitioners use a combination of classical homeopathy (single dose remedies) as well as Bio-therapeutic drainage.

From everyday stress and toxins from the environment + diet, our cells become inundated with toxins. Drainage remedies are combination homeopathic remedies that help to get cellularly to dump toxins that can be keeping you sick. They help open up your pathways of elimination. Think about the drain in the bathtub. We want those drains open to be releasing any toxic matter, and not storing which can lead to ill health.


Everyday our bodies get burdened with the car exhaust we breathe in, the tap water we drink in a restaurant, the second hand smoke at the outdoor bar/lounge to the perfume we sniff off of our best friend.

Detoxification is not a buzz-word but a way of life.

From the extreme burden of everyday environmental toxins, our body (especially the liver) becomes overwhelmed and it can’t do its job optimally.

It’s like expecting your car to run when you have dirty oil. Detoxification is crucial for anti-aging, preventing disease and wiping away that brain-fog and fatigue we are constantly struggling with.

Mind Body Medicine

Mind Body Medicine is one of the most important tools we have to help you heal. There are countless people who have previous trauma and/or negative core beliefs that are not aware of the devastating effects it has on their physical and mental health. If you are plateauing on your health journey, it is essential that you consider addressing the root cause (which in many peoples cases are suppressed trauma).  

You can find true physical and mental healing when you work on the underlying issues holding you back.

Our practitioners ask about your childhood, little T or big T traumas throughout your life, and take this all into account when developing a health plan for you. They also have incredible resources and referrals of shamans, energy healers, reiki practitioners, EMDR therapists, holistic minded therapists, breath workers, etc. that are available in person or virtually that they can match you with. This is generally the missing piece that can be exactly what propels people into healing and better health.


Anti-aging is not about botox, fillers or expensive designer lotions.

Our skin is a representation of our internal environment.

Detoxification, the right nutrition + diet and healthy herbal skin formulas can create the youth you are desiring.

Once you change your lifestyle, your skin will be radiant, glow, and you can look years younger!

Acupuncture or Acupressure

*Acupuncture is available with Dr. Sparks in Connecticut. Contact us for details. 

Acupuncture: “Qi” in Chinese Medicine is translated as energy.

Around for many centuries, acupuncture helps to move qi throughout the body in order to reduce pain, help headaches, calm gastrointestinal complaints, increase healing time, smoking cessation, assist with mental emotional disorders like depression and anxiety + so much more!

Our practitioners may also suggest at home ways to receive benefits from Chinese Medicine. They include auricular acupuncture using ear seeds, acupressure massage, Chinese herbs etc.

If you are looking for Chinese Medicine analysis in your patient care, Dr. Sparks is an ND on our team who is an expert in Chinese Medicine and would be a perfect fit!

Herbal or Botanical Medicine

Herbs have been used for centuries all over the world to assist a person in their healing journey.

Herbs can be used acutely for colds, flu’s, injuries, etc.

There are wide varieties of herbs with different mechanisms of actions that can help with hormonal concerns, autoimmunity, mood, adrenal support, liver support/detox + so much more!

Herbs, when chosen correctly are very safe and are great alternatives to medications that can have long lists of side effects.


How can something as simple as water be so valuable?

Water is an element that we take for granted. Just by using different temperature water…

you can heal certain skin ailments, cool down inflammation, decrease pain and detox.

It can be as simple as alternating hot and cold wash clothes over your sinuses when you have a sinus infection.

There are many ways we suggest using hydrotherapy in your treatment, depending on how you are presenting and your unique health concern.

Don’t underestimate the power of water.
