As a naturopathic doctor and herbalist we strive to treat the whole person. What does this mean exactly?
Treating the whole person means we delve into the spiritual, physical, and mental/emotional components of each patient. The beautiful thing about being human is that we are all very much apart of the same fabric but every one of us has a slightly different attribute.
Part of our training as naturopathic physician and functional herbalist is that of a family medicine doctor. We can treat a variety of different health concerns such as general health and wellness, anxiety, depression, autoimmune disorders, eczema/psoriasis, thyroid disease (Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, and Grave’s disease), pain management, food sensitivities, diabetes, adjunctive cancer treatments, and acute infections.
We do this with a toolbox of modalities such as herbal medicine, physical medicine, homeopathy, diet/nutrition, lifestyle modification, and in some states pharmaceuticals and IV medicine. At Of The Earth Wellness we believe there is a time and place for all things. At Of The Earth Wellness, we strive for balance, empathy, and non-judgement.

Therapy Dog, Dr. Dave's Ride or Die pup, adventurer extraordinaire.
Kismet is the oldest of the pack and an old soul. She found her way home with Dr. Dave and Laura when the went on a trip to Turkey. She knew that they were gullible and with a little cohoersion she could go from the street to a home. She now is the main clinic pup and will most certainly win your heart! She love’s backpacking, running, and will swim in any body of water (good luck keeping her out of it)

Hypothyroidism is one of the more common thyroid dysfunctions we see at Of The Earth Wellness.
Our gut is also home to a billions or even trillions of beneficial bacteria. However, if we mistreat our gut or if one is on chronic antibiotic use our guts can become dysfunctional. Creating problems with constipation, diarrhea, bloating, candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, leaky gut, IBS, Crohn’s, SIBO or any variety of concerns that arise.
The gut is the seat and gate keeper of our immune system, without it we are very susceptible to a variety of infections or problems.
