Botanical Medicine

Phytotherapy or plant medicines are used as teas, tinctures, poultices and capsules. Medicinal plants are safe and effective for enhancing the immune system and treating illnesses. 


Constitutional hydrotherapy uses sine wave and hot/cold water to facilitate healing.  It increases circulation, blood flow, organ function and immune response.  It treats infection, inflammation, and is vital for cleansing.


Homeopathy is a safe treatment option for acute and chronic illness.  Homeopathy helps your body start the healing process with a "like cures like" approach, a similimum.  A Naturopath takes characteristics specific to each patient to find their correct remedy.

Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition consultations. We correct deficiencies and malnutrition by applying "food as medicine" as well as pharmaceutical grade supplements to provide balance and optimal health.  We teach better ways to eat for weight loss management and metabolic efficiency.

BPA-Free are you doing enough?

by Dr. Miki Finlayson, Naturopathic Doctor on 07/16/12

Just when thought using a BPA free bottle or BPA free plastic containers was enough.   A recent study in Pediatrics; July 16, 2012 (dpi 10,1542/peds.2011-3374) Dental Composite Restorations and Psychosocial Function in Children links BPA or bisphenol A found in resin-based dental materials to add to psychosocial problems in children.   They used a self-reported Behavior Assessment System for Children and parent reported Child Behavior Checklist.    It makes me wonder since BPA exposure seems to be on the rise despite new BPA-free materials available to consumers.  This makes me think of many children with autism, ADD, ADHD who correlatively also usually have poor dental health and an increased risk for cavities.  


Another exposure you might not be thinking of, I sure wasn't is in thermal and recycled paper and paper currency as reported in the ACS' journal Environmental Science and Technology.  

Take home from this is that glass is always better, avoiding plastics of any sort is important, even if it is BPA-free.  The two chemical structures are so similar that BPS is being linked to the same endocrine and hormonal disruption of it's cousin BPA.   BPS safety likely still in question, since all previous studies were on BPA.  
So just because it says it is BPA-free does not mean it is healthy or wise for your use.
