Why Our Natural Treatment Works So Well For Health Issues…

We address the root cause

Our process includes finding and attacking the actual root CAUSE of your problem. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a long term chronic issues – like pelvic pain, endometriosis, PMS, IBS, and other things doctors have trouble with – have experienced significant relief.



We use an all-natural approach your doctor doesn’t know about

Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your problem, stay on the birth control pill or other medication, or that “this is as good as it gets”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.



We help you awaken your body's natural healing system

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to have energy, focus, and joy again. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.



We keep it simple and results are quick

Feeling better and reducing or eliminating pain, fatigue, cramps, mood swings, and other symptoms does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head on, and patients often see improved energy and mood within Days not Weeks or Months.



We focus on how you fell - not just the numbers

While everyone else is looking at pieces of paper with numbers, and not listening to you – We focus on you, your story, and how you feel.


Are you feeling more energy? Are you thinking more clearly? Are you starting to lose those unwanted pounds? Does your skin look healthy and vibrant? That is our focus. Not more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.


Our approach always includes stress reduction

Stress is often a key component in hormonal imbalance. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.

Acupuncture improves your neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances circulation to specific glands and tissues that support hormone secretion, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your overall hormonal state.



Herbal medicines have been used for hormonal issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your endocrine function.



Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds and hundreds to improve their hormonal status.



No, we do not. Our methods are 100% natural and designed to support optimal function of your endocrine system.



We’ve seen it take as little as 4 weeks and as long as 12 months. Everybody is different, and the time prognosis varies.



Almost everyone we work with who follows the treatment plan gets better. That’s because all we do is support your body’s natural healing system and it already knows what to do.



Well over 80% of our patients report improvements and many are able to reduce their medications (should that be their wish). However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
