Dealing With Thinning Hair — The Natural Way.

Hair loss is an emotional journey, fraught with loss of confidence, panic that the loss will continue, and unease about which steps to take next. There are many treatments on the market, some effective, and some… not so much. Many of the patients who come into our office have been struggling with hair loss for months or years, and have already tried the creams, masks, supplements, and medications that are commonly recommended. Either because these therapies haven’t worked, because the treatments caused unwelcome side effects, or because the patient is looking for a more [...]

Trigger Point Injection Therapy — A Cure for Acute and Chronic Pain

Seven years ago I was mountain biking in Colorado, cruising downhill at 40 miles an hour. I rounded a bend and just as I cleared the corner a dog ran in front of my bike. I braked hard, flipped over the handlebars, and landed on my left shoulder, tearing the ligaments connecting my collarbone and shoulder blade clean through. They said I needed surgery to repair the joint, but I was hesitant to commit to general anesthesia and a long recovery period. I began looking for more natural options. I found a local practitioner [...]

Prolotherapy: A Natural Alternative to Pain-killers and Cortisol Injections for Acute and Chronic Pain

Prolotherapy is the injection of injured joints tissue, ligaments, and tendons with short-acting anesthetics (lidocaine/procaine) and regenerative solutions including dextrose, antioxidants, and/or amino acids that stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, increasing local collagen production. Prolotherapy is a great treatment for acute injuries to tissues that are otherwise strong and healthy but are taking a long time to heal. It is a safe, natural, effective alternative to cortisone injections and surgery, and uses the body’s natural healing ability to relieve acute and chronic pain, strengthen injured tissue, and restore function in the joint. Treatments [...]

Platelet Rich Plasma — Cutting-Edge Regenerative Medicine for Joint Degeneration and Pain

Have you been told your knees or hips are "bone on bone"? Many of the patients that come in to our office have been told to "just wait" until their joint pain and degeneration have become severe enough to warrant surgery, and are getting by with a little help from cortisol injections and pain killers. While cortisol injections may temporarily relieve pain in some cases, they also prevent cellular repair of the joint. In fact, they have been shown to further increase cartilage loss in those with osteoarthritis of the knee joints. Additionally, they [...]

Food Allergies, Your Weight, and Your Health

Eating foods you are allergic to can drastically effect your your overall health and well-being. The chronic inflammation that begins to brew in your system following repetitive ingestion of foods that your body recognizes as harmful impacts your entire system, and can produce symptoms ranging from joint pain to headaches and migraines, skin rashes to asthma, fatigue to brain fog, weight gain to hormonal imbalance. To comprehend how benign foods become so harmful, it's important to understand how normal digestion works. Let’s say you eat a hamburger. You take a bite, chew it, and [...]

What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

An N.D. is a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, which is a field of medicine far broader than the practice of diagnosing health conditions and prescribing natural therapies for symptom management. In fact, Naturopathy is an entirely different model of health, based on the belief that our bodies can heal themselves — as long as we provide the right conditions. When our basic needs (clean air, pure water, restful sleep, a nutritious and balanced diet, and proper body alignment, to name just a few) are met, our innate healing ability will flourish. In the absence of any one [...]
