Meet the doctors at Roots Natural Medicine.
Treating the ROOT cause
We have the goal of understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. In order to treat the root cause, we must look “upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning. We also have a special interest in the care of the body's structure, particularly, the health and allignment of the spinal column, not only in its relationship to pain, but also its connection to optimal funtioning of the nervous system, which orchestrates all physiologic processes.
Our approach to health care is integrative and evidence-based. We support the combining of the best medical practices. We believe in the integration of traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine. Our focus is on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and utilizing the best of both centuries old therapies along with cutting edge technology.
We are trained to know when a referral is necessary or would benefit the patient. Knowing that no single doctor has all of the answers, we look forward to being part of a team of health care providers. Certain situations should be managed through prescription drugs and Roots Natural Medicine will make sure that patients get the care that is appropriate for them.
