Naturopathy is a separate and distinct philosophy, science and approach to health based on vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature. Naturopaths were a distinct group of lay professionals and physicians back in the 19th century who broke from conventional medicine due to the often harmful treatments and harsh methods physicians employed in their practices. Naturopaths, or “nature cure” doctors as they were often called, arose to replace the harsh methods of their day with treatments that cooperate with the body’s own curative processes. As practiced today, Naturopathy is still characterized by these same basic approaches to health and living. Naturopathy encompasses all the natural healing arts and relies on non-toxic approaches toward enhancing one’s health and well being. At CWH our naturopaths use these natural principles and techniques to guide clients in stimulating their own innate healing energies. Proper nutrition and diet choices, rest, mental and emotional outlook all work to ensure a sound foundation for building good health, which God meant for us all to enjoy. Our naturopathic doctors will use iridology and sclerology or specialized testing to first assess the state of your health, then provide the appropriate therapies as indicated. These could be herbal therapy, homeopathics, nutritional approaches, fasting, reflexology and massage, biofeedback, or other gentle therapies to bring about a state of balance.
Holistic Health — Try the Natural Alternatives
Today millions of Americans are looking for alternatives to regular or conventional medical care, what we like to call complementary care. Statistics confirm that people seeking holistic or complementary practitioners are continually on the rise.

Making Appointments at NHS
After making an appointment, when you first arrive at the Center, we will consult with you to see if our services fit your health challenge. If we mutually agree we can help you, we then take a complete client history. This intake will be in the form of a questionnaire. This is the best means to assess your health before examination. We then set up a partial or full protocol on a case-by-case basis tailored to your particular health profile.
Details about procedures and other information will be provided at this time. We generally don’t take insurance for our services, but special arrangements can be made, depending on the nature of your concerns. Assessment may take some time, and we ask that you be a little patient after getting the treatments or going through our protocols. We then provide feedback to you with the results we obtain for your particular health profile.
I am a concerned practitioner devoted to helping you get the best possible care available. But that also means a responsibility on your part to follow a protocol that you might find difficult to comply with. Know that we are here to support you in your healing journey. Remember, naturopaths are specialists in natural health and the wide range of services offered at the Center are geared toward maximizing your health potential.
