Our providers use a healthy blend of naturopathic and allopathic medicine to diagnose and treat their patients by treating the whole body. In addition to being primary care physicians, our providers specialize in:
The sources of gastrointestinal dysfunction may be traced to diet, environmental toxins, microbes, stress, inflammation, disease processes or sub-normal function of other organs in the body.
EBV, Lyme & Other Chronic Infectious Diseases
Lyme disease is often called “The Great Imitator” because its symptoms resemble a number of other diseases. Regularly misdiagnosed, Lyme disease has been confused with arthritis, autism, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, Lupus and bipolar disorder. As a result, Lyme disease requires a clinical diagnosis of symptoms followed by lab work to support and validate the physician’s diagnosis.
Pediatric Lyme: Pediatric Lyme disease and gestational Lyme disease are unique and special cases. Dr. Jena trained with ILADS, under Dr. Rafael Stricker MD, one of our leaders in the diagnosis, research and treatment of Lyme Disease.
When an immune response runs out of control it can cause inflammation resulting in one or more autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Addison’s disease and others. The naturopathic approach is to identify and treat the cause of the immune reaction, and not solely rely on symptomatic relief.
Endocrine Disorders & Weight Loss
The endocrine system is distributed throughout the body, in a variety of glands that excrete hormones mediating metabolism, growth and reproduction. Endocrine dysfunctions affect health and the perception of health in many ways. Mood, sleep, energy level, appetite, weight control, nerve health, blood pressure, libido and many other expressions of biological and psychological function are mediated by this complex system.
Biotoxin Illness - CIRS & Mold Exposure
Also known as Sick Building Syndrome, exposure to many issues in buildings can be an underlying cause for chronic long term illness. Both Drs. Peterson and Minoff are trained in identifying, testing and treatment mycotoxin-sick patients.
Allergies — Food & Environmental
The body is constantly exposed to substances, in the air, in our homes, and even in the food we eat. Sometimes the response of our immune systems can become extreme, even though the substance itself, pollen for example, is relatively benign. Once begun, the allergic reaction tends to recur every time the body encounters that same substance again.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is marked by disturbances of memory, concentration and sleep, along with joint pain, exhaustion and lymph node tenderness. Dr. Peterson specializes in cutting edge approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic fatigue and CFS.
Anxiety, Depression & Mood Disorders
Many patients present with chronic symptoms that have bothered them for years, which can often be traced to inflammation caused by accumulated toxins in the environment and in our foods. A multi-pronged detoxification protocol can be designed for each individual, to cleanse and reset the body and begin the process of healing. Dr. Minoff specializes in taking patients through detoxification protocols, which she individualizes to each patients needs at the time.
