MEET-DR.-ALEXISNaturopathic medicine has changed my life and my health and I would love to share with you what I have learned over the years studying and practicing medicine.

There are a few common reasons why someone first stumbles upon my website… Maybe health is a top priority in your life. Maybe you are sick and tired of always feeling sick and tired. Maybe your list of medications is growing, but you don’t feel any healthier as a result.

Whatever brought you, I am glad you are here! I have helped 1000s of people just like you to improve their health with natural medicine. There is an overwhelming amount of conflicting information out there on what it means to be healthy. I will help you to sort through and identify the safest and most effective natural medicine sources.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WHAT I DO
Here is my story…

When I was about 16 years old I started to develop some very serious health problems that went undiagnosed and untreated for years.

I had headaches that developed into migraines and digestive issues that resulted in a very serious digestive disease, called ulcerative colitis. Even though diet is so intimately linked to digestive health, I was never once asked by my doctor what I was eating. I would later find out that my intolerance to dairy and massive addiction to sugar was in part to blame for worsening my health condition. It has been through natural medicine that I have gained control of my health and life again.

What is Naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine combines modern medical science with time-proven healing traditions to provide an integrative model of medicine. I earned my doctorate by attending a four-year, post-baccalaureate level medical school in Portland, OR called the Natural College of Naturopathic Medicine.

In addition to the standard medical curriculum, I have complete intensive training in functional medicineclinical nutritionhomeopathy, medicinal herbs, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, and the functional assessment of blood work.

I use an evidence & experience-based medical approach. My treatment recommendations focus on restoring optimal function to the body.

I am an expert in a drug-free, natural approach to healing the body.

I emphasize a drug-free approach to medicine. Consultations are longer than than your typical medical visit in order to gain a full understanding of the underlying cause of your symptoms.  To address the symptoms, and more importantly why they are occurring, a typical treatment may include changes to your lifestyle and diet. Additional prescriptions for a homeopathic remedy and nutritional/herbal supplementation may be recommended. Each person has unique needs; therefore, this model of medicine is not a “one size fits all” approach.

Who can I help?

Commonly people work with me to improve their digestive complaints, headaches, migraines, allergies, difficulty losing weight, type II diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders.

I also specialize in helping people to create and maintain optimal health & performance. I use sophisticated online tools and blood work assessments to identify imbalances in the body, before they become a problem.

With the use of online video conferencing it makes it very easy to consult with patients worldwide. And you never have to leave the house for your consultation!
