Services

Integrative Health Consultations

Integrative medicine is a partnership between patient and healthcare practitioner. As part of your first visit, we will review your history, past treatments you have tried, and the difficulties you may have had healing. The goal will be to find out what might be helpful so that you can optimize your health going forward, integrating treatments aimed at restoring strength, vitality and resilience.

Treatments

Integrative medicine makes use of pharmaceutical drugs when they are appropriate. Other treatment options may include herbals, vitamins, minerals, dietary changes, exercise recommendations, ear acupuncture, and stress reduction techniques. Family Nurse Practitioners treat patients of all ages, for common medical problems, both acute and chronic.

NADA Ear Acupuncture

The NADA protocol has been found to be particularly helpful for the treatment of addictions (including tobacco), trauma you may have experienced, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and/or depression. NADA ear acupuncture is included in office visit when used, and is also offered in groups as a community service.

Patient Advocacy Services

The healthcare system is often difficult to navigate, especially when challenged with serious illness. A patient advocate works directly with patients and families to ensure that they have a voice in their care, so that patients have sufficient information to promote informed decision making. This includes translating medical language into plain English, researching options of care, helping patients make informed choices and accessing resources. Advocacy can facilitate so that a patient’s wishes are the guiding force behind decisions affecting medical care, collaborating with other members of the healthcare team.
