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.

As a young woman, I became very interested and fascinated by the intricacy of the human body and more importantly the interconnection of the mind, body and spirit. This led me to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and my Master in Public Health from VCU School of Medicine. But it was during my time as a student researcher at the Massey Cancer Center at VCU Medical Center as well as an employee within the emergency department that I began putting significant things together. As much as I respected medicine, I realized that something was missing. People with chronic illnesses were not really getting better. And little was being done within the general population to truly prevent many diseases. Prevention was often not occurring until there was a diagnosis. My beliefs and concerns about prevention were solidified when my grandfather was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It was a life-altering experience. I began searching for the most optimal healthcare model of prevention and healing. At which point, a MD friend introduced me to naturopathic medicine and immediately I realized that I had found my life passion, it was naturopathic medicine.


Dr. Taylor Pagano, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

Areas of concentration: General Wellness, Gastrointestinal concerns, and Women’s Medicine

In early adulthood, I discovered the connection between your diet and your health.  Upon being exposed to the truth behind factory farming and the food industry I made a huge lifestyle change.  I did a complete overhaul on my diet and I learned how to eat in a way that would nourish my body, mind and soul. In doing so, I found a new passion for nutrition.  I had dealt with digestive issues and acne through all of my teen years and this change in my diet lead to increased energy, healthier skin, and better digestion.
