Naturopathic physicians combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing methods, principles and practices, naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.

Naturopathic doctors at Amber Wellness Group concentrate on “whole person” wellness addressing the physical, emotional and soul/spirit levels. We use holistic wellness tools, prescribe pharmaceuticals, as needed, and help people integrate allopathic and naturopathic medicine.
Initially, we utilize a variety of diagnostic techniques, beginning with a comprehensive patient history and interview and general physical and symptom-specific examinations. We then may order more comprehensive functional lab panels, such as digestive analysis and food sensitivity, neurotransmitter and/or hormone testing, if/as need.
Naturopathic Treatment Tools Include:
- IV Therapy
- Nutritional Supplements
- Herbal Medicine
- Lifestyle Coaching
- Stress Management
