Neurology

There are many people struggling with various neurological concerns; these issues can include:

  • Essential tremor
  • Cognitive changes or decline
  • Memory issues
  • Parkinson’s
  • Alzheimer’s
  • ALS
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Stroke
  • Movement disorders
  • Neuropathy
  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Post-herpetic neuralgia
  • Seizures
  • Headache/Migraine
  • Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion
  • And more

Regardless of the diagnosis, we work to assess the cause and work in collaboration with your current physicians. We often further assess family history, epigenetics, viruses, injury, nutrition/diet, environmental exposures, and stress. There are many factors that together impact your current health. Each are important and are vital to investigate; this provides the best outcome and quality of life for those struggling with the neurological disease.

The nervous system is an integral system within the body and plays a role in nearly all aspects of health. Controlling our breathing, heart rate, and temperature regulation, learning and memory, balance and coordination, and even hunger, circadian rhythm, and our emotions.  Because of this, neurologic illness makes a huge impact on quality of life and sense of wellbeing.  It can be especially hard on those that are ill as well as the caretakers around them.

There are some aspects of daily living that contribute to neurological dysfunction.  From dietary and environmental contaminants to long-term stress, poor sleep, and overall sedentary lifestyle.  These are just a few contributors to the growing epidemic of diminishing brain health.  Some other factors that we take into consideration for optimal brain function are the gut microbiome, infections, inflammation, hormone balance, and neurotransmitter balance.

The Naturopathic approach to neurologic conditions includes a thorough assessment of any and all factors that may be contributing to the current presentation. Using some tools including lifestyle and diet modification, herbs, biotherapeutic drainage, homeopathy, as well as vitamin and mineral supplementation, we create an individualized plan to enhance not only your brain health but your overall state of health and wellbeing.
