Naturopathic Medicine and Acupuncture
Naturopathic medicine allows for the widest scope possible for a primary health care provider and is used to provide relief from disease using a natural approach rather than a drug-based approach.
Prior to treatment, the doctor will conduct a comprehensive health interview to record pertinent information, perform any needed physical examinations, and recommend any necessary labs such as hormone testing.
Your naturopathic treatments may include the following modalities:
- Includes diet advice and any needed natural health supplementation plans
- Support for vegetarian/vegan lifestyle if required
- Food Allergy (IgG/IgE) Testing
- Nutrigenomic Testing (comprehensive salivary genetic test for 45 genetic markers)
- Using completely vegan herbal extracts to naturally provide the body with certain actions needed to overcome dis-ease
Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
Often, imbalances in the flow of blood and energy (Qi) along with deficiencies in the cooling or heating system of our body can lead to disease. Acupuncture along with carefully selected vegan friendly Chinese herbal formulas can be used to correct these imbalances. In addition to symptom differentiation, Ladan Mohammadi, R.Ac., PhD. who is trained in the healing art of traditional medicine, uses her pulse and tongue diagnostic skills to formulate a diagnosis which then can be used to derive the appropriate treatment protocol.
A misconception about acupuncture is that it is a painful therapy but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Hamid Tajbakhsh, ND uses a method of acupuncture he has named AKiMCA. This stands for Applied Kinesiology Mediated Constitutuional Acupuncture which allows for gentle insertion of a minimal amount of needles to bring upon maximal healing response. Dr. Hamid uses manual muscle testing techniques to locate exact areas of excess and deficiency which allows him to efficiently and effectively address multiple concerns at once thereby treating the actual cause of his patients’ concerns.
Ladan Mohammadi, R.Ac., PhD. also ensures gentle insertion of needles by utilizing premium brand acupuncture needles to ensure gentle activation of acupoints. In addition to disease prevention, Ladan Mohammadi uses the philosophy of acupuncture to provide facial rejuvenation services to patients looking to optimize and maintain a youthful appearance.
Bowen therapy was first founded by Tom Bowen in Australia during the 1960s. This therapy uses non-invasive gentle soft-tissue maneuvers which send signals to the central nervous system causing re-structuring of muscles, tendons, and bones. This works to break repetitive pain cycles and eliminate chronic pain patterns!
Bowen therapy also increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage to the tissues and even organs which help to rejuvenate the body and aid in the self healing mechanisms of the body.
