Who DON'T I treat is a better question! Anyone can benefit from seeing a naturopathic doctor. Given the focus on health promotion, even if you are in excellent health, it's always helpful to have someone kick your tires from time to time.
I consider myself to be a generalist ... meaning I don't have a speciality or a focus. However, given that I teach pediatrics, do my research in pediatrics, and literally wrote the book on naturopathic pediatrics, I'm pretty comfortable with kids. I have a number of little clients for whom I am their primary care provider ... they see me for their regular check-ups, and we deal with the typical dance through childhood together - knowing that I will refer when it's appropriate to do so. I have tiny infants to "old people" in my practice ... I'll leave it to you to decide how old is old!
Because I'm a generalist, I do recognize my limitations when it comes to some more complicated scenarios. I tend to not work with individuals who are undergoing treatment for cancer. There are a number of my colleagues who focus solely on this, and I strongly encourage you to connect with one of them if this is you or someone you love. I also tend to refer for individuals looking for focused fertility support, or who are struggling with chronic pain - this is mostly because of my limited availability.
There are lots of things I see frequently in my practice. Kid stuff. Lots of that. Normal growth and development stuff. Ear infections. Sore tummies. Pimples. Puberty. Carry on. I navigate difficult stress in nearly every person I see - whether they label it that or not. I address a lot of digestive concerns. I address low energy. I address low or anxious mood. I address menstrual pain and irregular periods.
But if your concern isn't on the list, try me! I'll tell you if I think I can help, or send you to someone else who I think can.
