Naturopathic Medicine

There are several treatment modalities that a Doctor of Naturopathy uses: 
Clinical Nutrition - Nutrition is a cornerstone of Naturopathic practice. Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements than they can by other means, with fewer complications and side effects. 
Botanical Medicine - Many plant substances are powerful medicines. Where single chemically derived drugs may only address a single problem, botanical medicines are able to address a variety of problems simultaneously. There organic nature makes botanicals compatible with the body's own chemistry; hence, they can be gently effective with few toxic side effects. 
Homeopathic Medicine - Homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of "like cures like". It works on a subtle yet powerful electromagnetic lever, gently acting to strengthen the body's healing and immune response. 
Oriental Medicine - Oriental medicine is a complimentary healing philosophy to Naturopathic Medicine. Meridian theory offers an important understanding of the unity of the body and mind, and adds to the Western understanding of physiology. Acupuncture provides a method of treatment which can unify and harmonize the imbalances present in disease conditions, which if untreated, can result in illness. 
Naturopathic Obstetrics - Naturopathic Doctors offer prenatal and postnatal care using modern diagnostic techniques. Our approach strengthens healthy body functions so that any complications associated with pregnancy may be prevented. (She does not do Obstetrics, however she does teach and practice Prenatal Massage and Postnatal Massage.) 
Lifestyle Counseling - Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness. Counseling, nutritional balancing, stress management and other therapies are used to help patients heal on psychological level. 
Guided Imagery for reversing panic attacks, acute stress and PTSD. Dr. Allen is certified in the use of this technique. 
Your First Visit

Your first visit to a Naturopath will include taking a detailed look into your personal health history and general family history information, performing a physical exam, taking your vial signs (blood pressure, pulse and temperature), Chinese medical diagnosis, urine test and blood type test. The entire visit will be an hour and a half long.

After you and your Naturopath have talked about your chief concern, the Naturopath will analyze the given information and provide you with an individualized treatment plan for next visit (unless is is an acute situation then treatment is given the same day). If you have blood tests or other tests taken by your physician, bring a copy with you to save time and cost. A hair analysis may also be discussed as whether or not it would be of assistance in developing your plan.
