Hillary and Naturopathy
I believe the strength of naturopathic medical care lies in its ability to treat the root cause of a patient’s concern. This not only achieves symptomatic relief, it allows a patient to reach a higher state of health and prevents further disease. By understanding the underlying physiology of a patient’s medical condition, along with taking the time to learn about the whole person, I create treatment plans using various modalities such as acupuncture, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, lifestyle and diet management, and physical medicine.
Focus area - moms and kidlets
'While we try to teach our children about life, our children teach us what life is all about' - Unknown
As adults, we have a way of making seemingly simple questions require very complicated answers. However, ask an infant, a baby, or even an adolescent for the answer and they will bring simplicity back into the picture. It'll just make sense.
I believe that treating 'fresh templates' of life can set each child up for success in order to keep their hearts and minds clear for those simple answers to come out, while growing and nurturing their intellects and perspectives on life. Treating, supporting and guiding children through their adolescence will allow them to adopt a healthy perspective in all situations, as their worlds broaden and their horizons become endless.
This process starts with moms! Moms to be, moms who want to be and pre moms to be! Through my love for treating children, has grown my love and appreciation for moms. Lets get started!
