Naturopathic Medicine

Family Medical CareDr. Haynes Assessing Patient

We provide comprehensive general care for the whole family – men, women and children – treating both recent illnesses and ongoing chronic problems. Our focus is on treating the whole person. We encourage education, self-responsibility and prevention.

Women’s Health Care

We provide routine annual exams and offer natural treatments for conditions ranging from infertility, endometriosis, PMS, and menopause. We use salivary and urinary hormone testing.

Nutritional Services

An inflammatory diet, nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities and disturbed digestion can often be the cause of, or contribute to, many health conditions. Our providers have extensive training in clinical nutrition, creating food plans for people to help them optimize their health. Although we focus mainly on diet, intelligent supplementation can make a significant difference.
