Treatment Options

Clinical Nutrition

One of the most important aspects of health is nutrition: we truly are what we eat. Eating whole foods in optimal amounts ensures that our bodies receive the nourishment they need to maintain optimal health. In naturopathic medicine, we realize that there is no one diet that works best for everyone. Dr. Hannan will help you learn both about healthy food options and the importance of how you are eating. The timing of meals and habits surrounding eating are as important as what foods you are eating. A focus on good nutrition is the basis for whole body health. In some cases, additional nutritional supplementation may be necessary to achieve optimal levels of nutrients or to help correct nutrient imbalances. Dr. Hannan utilizes high quality nutritional supplements if they are deemed necessary.

Lifestyle Counseling

Lifestyle counseling is at the core of all treatment you will receivefrom a naturopathic doctor and forms the base for good health. Youractivity level, sleep, stress levels, hydration status, social/emotional/metal health balance, as well as your home and work environments all play key roles in your overall health. Naturopathic medicine does not offer a quick fix to health issues, but rather Naturopathic Doctors help teach you how to live your life in such a way as to achieve optimum health.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a therapeutic system of medicine that is based on theprinciple of similars - like cures like - which means that a substancethat can cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can cure similarsymptoms in an unhealthy person. Homeopathy aims to aid and stimulate the body's own defense and immune processes. Homeopathic medicines are derived from a variety of plants, animal materials and minerals and are prescribed to fit each individual's needs. They are given in much smaller and in non-toxic doses as compared to pharmaceutical medications, and are used for both prevention and treatment. They are very safe medications as they are so dilute. Children in particular often respond wonderfully to homeopathic medicines.
