The Body’s Wisdom

Naturopathic medicine is truly a unique blend of modern scientific research combined with the art and wisdom of traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is deeply rooted in the belief that our bodies possess the ability to heal themselves. Naturopath Dr. Alison Gottschalk will structure her interventions in order to stimulate the body’s innate healing, using gentle and non-invasive means.

Preventing and Fighting Illness

Naturopathic medicine offers effective treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. It is most effective when it comes to preventing the development of chronic disease or the further progression of illness.

Principles of the Naturopathic Doctor:

First of all, to do no harm.
To act in cooperation with the Healing Power of Nature.
To address the fundamental cause of disease.
To heal the whole person through individualized treatment.
To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine.
