(what they are, and not) “Physician, Heal Thyself” -Jesus (Luke 4:23)
We carry no state licenses or state credentials. Traditional Naturopathy and Naturopathic Doctors are two different fields of study and expertise. We do not diagnose, treat or prescribe medication. We address structure and function of brain, bone, organ, tissue, muscle, joint, ect… and correct underlying root causes of symptoms. Many things are outside of our scope of practice, but we also often get natural results as good and better than prescriptions. We operate under Pastoral Medical Licenses as part of an ecclesiastical governing covering, and as a faith-based pastoral & naturopathic medicine clinic under 508c(1)a non profit guidelines. All donations may be tax-deductible. HSA funds accepted, no insurance billing outside of our separate counseling center.
