Instead of asking what prescription can be written to mask symptoms, Naturopathic Medicine asks, “Why did this problem occur, to begin with?” and “What can we do to restore function?”
Modern medicine is “disease management”, not “health care”. My goal is to help empower you to get healthy, and then stay healthy. I like to tell my clients that when I’ve done my job well, it keeps them out of my office!
I listen and spend my time with you.
I want to hear your story– the answers lie there! Things that may seem unrelated to your symptoms (like sleep, diet, stress, relationships, and physical activity) are things I pay close attention to.
So many of my patients tell me that prior to working with me, they told their doctor about symptoms they were experiencing, and had testing run, but were told that there was “nothing wrong with them”, or that they should “wait and watch” to see what happens.
When a plant’s leaves begin to fall off, we don’t try and glue them back on..we try and discover the cause of the plant’s illness, in Naturopathy.
The earlier we intervene, the more likely you are to get full recovery.
Health is not defined by a lack of symptoms; my objective is to help your body to regenerate to optimal vitality every day of your life!

WHAT TO EXPECT
The key to Dr. Nirvana’s success is that she treats you as a whole person, not just as a set of symptoms. To improve your health, Dr. Nirvana employs a comprehensive whole person approach focusing on the root of your problem, not simply on masking your symptoms. Whether you have a leaky, a more serious chronic illness or just want to know how to strengthen your health from a Holistic perspective; Dr. Nirvana will stand by you to help guide you to your goals. Typically, Dr. Nirvana’s patients see improvements within one to two weeks, but some have significant benefits within a much shorter time frame.
The primary difference between Dr. Nirvana’s expertise and standard medical care is that she uses Functional Naturopathy which is designed to turn on your natural healing ability. The Functional Naturopathic approach is to discover the underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which you may not be aware of) and make interventions and lifestyle adjustments to restore your body’s natural health. This Naturopathic milieu encourages natural healing, and minimizes the need for invasive treatment.
Dr. Nirvana is committed to listening to each patient’s concerns and to provide the best course of action based on those individualized needs. She recognizes that the human body is complex and complicated and that every patient and every illness, is unique. Dr. Nirvana’s Functional Naturopathic approach is unique as she works diligently with each patient to implement this Holistic path using customized formulations that encompasses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient.
WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that addresses the root causes of illness. Naturopaths treat the whole person (not just the symptoms), looking at all of the systems at work in the human body. Our mental state, feelings, emotions, hormones are equally important as our blood work and physical being.
When necessary a Holistic Doctor integrates natural healing methodologies such as nutrition and plant-based natural remedies. They will also use conventional medical treatments such as extensive laboratory diagnostic testing and pharmacology.

- Preference for natural health and wellness
- Seeking an alternative to drugs or surgery
