Proper nutrition is one of the foundations of health. Naturopathic Doctors have a unique comprehensive understanding of nutritional biochemistry and utilize dietary changes as an integral part of treatment. Dr. Klasman will take a thorough health history, and evaluate your current diet and make individualized recommendations. Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients may also be used in treatment plans. Dr. Klasman often combines nutritional recommendations and supplementation to help her patients achieve optimal health.
This is the cornerstone of Naturopathic Medicine. 75% of what naturopathic doctors do is advise patients on their lifestyle. This is appropriate since lifestyle choices often underlie or exacerbate most chronic diseases. As naturopathic doctors, we are uniquely trained in all aspects of lifestyle management such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress management. These areas are evaluated to identify what’s going well and what needs changing. We also investigate how your daily habits and patterns may expose you to environmental toxins that may contribute to your health problems.
Plants have powerful healing properties and Dr. Klasman has a thorough understanding of using herbal medicines safely and effectively in the clinical setting. Dr. Klasman combines her knowledge of human physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and botanical medicine in her practice of herbal medicine. Naturopathic Doctors are one of the only licensed health-care professionals to be trained in both Pharmaceutical and Botanical Medicines and thus we fully understand and consider drug/herb and drug/nutrient interactions.
Dr. Klasman recognizes the value of therapeutic exercise, massage, craniosacral therapy, hydrotherapy, and electro-therapies in the treatment of musculoskeletal complaints. Naturopathic treatment of physical pain honors the intricate relationship between the mind and body. When necessary, referrals to qualified practitioners will be made.
Dr. Klasman may also prescribe select pharmaceutical medications when medically necessary.
