Optimal health can be achieved by bringing balance back to one’s body. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey, whether it be fertility, pregnancy, or juggling mom life – Inner Source Health can help.  We offer Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, and Reiki services.Getting to the root cause of your health issue is our priority and individualized medicine is how we help guide patients towards wellness.  

Our team of Naturopathic Doctors will establish patient care with a 90 min comprehensive medical intake. Founded upon a holistic philosophy, Naturopathic Medicine combines safe and effective traditional therapies with the most current advances in modern medicine. A Naturopathic Doctor attends a four-year medical school and is educated in all of the same basic and clinical sciences as a medical doctor and also studies holistic non-toxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic doctor is required to complete additional training in clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy and counseling. A Naturopathic Doctor also takes rigorous professional basic science and clinical board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician. 

Using natural modalities, you will get started on your healing journey with a health plan including nutrition, healthy lifestyle habits, and supplements specific for you. Naturopathic medicine is complementary to conventional medicine appointments with your OB/GYN. Learn about natural therapies for morning sickness, digestive issues, back pain, pelvic pain or postpartum  concerns- just to name a few.

Addressing all aspects of your life during the Naturopathic Doctor’s visit creates a foundation of health as well as empowering each mother. 

As Naturopathic Doctors, some commonly used all-natural therapies include herbs, vitamin & mineral therapy, Bach remedies, homeopathy, as well as traditional ancient remedies that will be supportive. The beauty of Naturopathic Medicine is that the health plan is catered specifically for you. Your doctor is here to support you in between visits if you have any questions too.  
 
Eastern medicine is complementary to western medicine, so acupuncture can be combined with naturopathic visits as well as scheduled separately. Acupuncture is a healing therapy which involves inserting fine, pre-sterilized, disposable needles into specific points or meridians along the body.  In addition to needling, there are other services such as tuina massage, cupping, gua sha, or IR sauna lamp that may be used during the acupuncture session.

Reiki is a form of energy medicine that works on balancing the chakra system. Chakras are energy wheels that exist within each of us.  During your treatment, each chakra is coursed and the flow of energy is managed. Just sit back and relax into the experience.
