Integrative Naturopathic Medical Services

 

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process.  The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern, traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Methods used in daily practice to help patients recover their health:

Microbiome Reset Program

The Microbiome Reset Program is Dr. Schulls tool for creating a diverse, healthy set of microbes that live withing your gut.  By repairing the microbiome we are able to reduce inflammation, improve digestion and absorption of nutrients, lose weight, decrease the rates of chronic disease, and restore optimal brain function.  This program has a strong focus on obesity and weight loss, however, it is a great program as a basis for improving health in any area of your life.

LENS
Low Energy
Neurofeedback System

This technology is a very unique form of neurofeedback.  It offers quick treatments and is easily utilized with those who cannot sit still or focus; making it a great tool for children with ASD, ADHD, anxiety, and other developmental disorders.  Results are noticed as early as the first treatment and patients continue to improve weeks and months after treatment.  Precise, safe, gentle, and effective, LENS is an incredible tool for restoring optimal brain function.  If you struggle with issues from a traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention problems, anger/explosiveness, poor memory, brain fog, or other mental health concerns, this therapy is for you.

Homeopathy

"Homeo" meaning similar, "pathy" meaning suffering.  This system of medicine is the use of natural substances prescribed on the basis of properties similar to the disease state that a patient is in.  Effectively, when hoemopathic medicines are given, they redirect the body's focus to the problems at hand and stimulate the innate healing response within the individual.  It is a deep acting and powerful method that transforms many patient's lives.

 

Herbal Medicine

Herbs have been used for healing as far back as we can look into history.  In fact, many of the pharmaceutical drugs of today are synthetically derived or extracted plant constituents.  Using whole herbs, however, produces markedly different results.  Herbalists have shown that plants contain many constituents that act together to produce their healing effect.  It is never a sole chemical within a plant responsible for its wide range of applications. Furthermore, when used in whole form, herbs produce fewer side effects. Herbal medicine is truly a gentle and effective addition to the healing process.

 

ART
Autonomic Response Testing

Autonomic Response Testing (ART for short) is a system of advanced muscle testing that uses the autonomic nervous system to identify stressed areas of the body and what therapies will alleviate the stress.  Developed by Dietrich Klinghardt, this methods has been a fantastic tool for discovering the underlying causes of symptoms and finding novel approaches to restoring health.  If you have seen many doctors and are still not getting solutions, this method will help you prioritize your health issues and find a fast track to recovery.

Craniosacral Therapy

This therapy is a physical medicine technique that is very gentle and can create profound changes; both physically and mentally.  The practitioners of this art have been trained to feel the pulsation of the cerebral spinal fluid (termed the cranial pulse) and utilize this information to find problems with functions of the body.  With gentle adjustments we can restore optimal function to the brain, nerves, muscles, and organs.   Patients experience better physical and emotional health as a result.   Whether you have been storing emotional trauma in your body, have had physical injury, or are struggling in your development, this therapy will accelerate your healing process.

Nutritional Counseling

The foundation of any healing journey is a good, wholesome diet. Proper nutrition provides the building blocks for which our body carries out thousands of biochemical and physiologic activities. Without proper vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, flavanoids, fiber, and other components of a healthy diet, it is impossible to feel good and for your body to function at its best.  Counseling on food, supplements, and various diets that are essential for you to achieve your health goals is a fundamental piece of your healing journey.

Naturopathic Manipulative
Therapy

This form of physical medicine is essentially a hybrid of chiropractic, physical therapy, and osteopathic techniques.  This is hands on medicine utilized to correct any abnormalities in structure that are affecting how the body functions.  Not only is it effective in healing many malidies, it will send you home feeling great!
