Alumni Spotlight on…Ann Cole, N.D. at Herbs & More

Before becoming a  Naturopathic Doctor, Ann Cole was a stay at home, homeschooling mom.  She was also frustrated.  She had come to a point in life where she had gained weight and was not happy with how she looked.  Her husband, Jason, had also gained weight, and after visiting their medical doctor, they were told to eat healthy and that would help them lose the weight.  Eat healthy:  what did that mean exactly?

Jason then attended a homeschooling conference that featured a naturopath as a guest speaker.  He came home excited with information about herbs and other natural remedies.  Ann’s … Read More

Organize Your Nerves

N.O.T. is an abbreviation for Neurological Organizational Technique.  This is a therapy that allows your nervous system to restore its connection and communication with all the other systems in your body.  Usually, an imbalance occurs after a trauma, like an accident or birth, but it can also occur from being nutritionally depleted or exposed to toxins.  Developed by a chiropractor who wondered why his adjustments weren’t holding, you relax on a massage table while your naturopath holds, taps, or rubs specific points on the body to unblock and open those nervous system pathways.  This is a very effective technique to … Read More

Live Blood

Look at one drop of blood under a microscope and see your own universe!  The Live Blood Analysis shows us your internal environment:  your red blood cells, white blood cells, food, bacteria, metals, chemicals, parasites, and more.  What we are able to see in the blood and the condition of the cells tells us about your immune system, digestion, your level of hydration, energy, key vitamins and minerals, and other health points.  This is performed with a dark field microscope, meaning that the background is black, and everything is illuminated from behind which allows us to see tiny details that … Read More

Look at What we Offer!

Meridians are pathways in the body that correspond to the organs and distribute energy for the purpose of interacting with the anatomical system, transmitting electromagnetic current for healing purposes, and interacting with the external environment.  Different points along the meridian pathways are commonly used in acupuncture and acupressure therapies.  Just like an electrical power line, when a meridian has a disruption in its flow, it affects your overall health and energy.  The Meridian Clearing therapy is designed to ensure that every meridian is “on line” and its energy is flowing smoothly to promote balance and optimal health.  Relax on a … Read More

Your Biological Age

How old does your body feel?  Older than your chronological age?  With the Biological Age Assessment, you complete a 12 hour fasting period (mainly while you sleep), then you collect a first morning urine sample and a saliva sample in order to analyze various aspects of your health.  This assessment takes note of your pH, mineral levels, energy levels, hydration levels, digestion, ability to detoxify, as well as major organs and cell structures.  Once complete, you  are given a colored chart of your organs, mineralization and toxicity levels.  We are amazed when 15 year old children have 57 year old … Read More
