The Practice of Natural Medicine

Elemental Health Care  is a naturopathic medical practice that combines conventional and integrative medicine, for natural, effective care.  Our services include:

Botanical Medicine
Herbs or plant medicine were historically used to treat an array of medical conditions. Modern use of herbal medicines is enhanced by clinical research, which demonstrated the healing effects of plants. Research and clinical experience show that the proper use of plants can be superior to prescription and over- the-counter drugs in treating medical conditions.

Clinical Nutrition
When given the proper resources, the body can and will heal itself. Hipocrates was know to say, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food”. Proper diet and proper eating provides your body with the necessary resources to meet your nutritional needs for restoration of health, optimal functioning, and the prevention of future disease. Clinical nutrition, through diet and supplementation, allows for the treatment of conditions without the risk of complications and side effects from more invasive modalities.

Homeopathic Medicine
Homeopathy is a unique system of medicine. It is used to treat the same medical conditions as conventional therapies. Additionally, it can provide healing to the underlying causes of dis-ease on the physical, mental, and emotional levels.

Lifestyle Counseling
Supports the integration of lifestyle changes into one’s life. Stress management, mental attitude, and emotional states are addressed pertaining to their role in disease.

Manipulative Therapies
Soft-tissue and structural manipulations can be used to support optimal functioning of your body.

Minor Surgery
Surgical methods are used to repair superficial wounds, remove foreign bodies, drain cysts, remove skin tags or other superficial lesions.

Environmental Medicine
Environmental contaminants are increasing their recognition for the negative impact they have on our health. Contaminants from our homes, workplaces, and ambient environment can have a significant and detrimental impact on our health. Understanding these factors, minimizing or eliminating their cause, and supporting our body’s in proper toxic elimination is an invaluable means or restoring health to our lives.

Prescription Medications
The goal of naturopathic medicine is to restore health through natural modalities by treating the cause. However, sometimes it is necessary to use prescription medications along with other natural therapies for the maximum benefit of your health and well-being.
