Sleep problems may be the most common health concern today. Untreated, they can slowly erode mental and physical well-being, leading to serious consequences. A consultation may be helpful if you suffer from insomnia or if you regularly need pills to sleep. A licensed therapist examines the nature and degree of your problem and offers suggestions to overcome it.
Our physicians will assess the nature of your sleep problems and recommend diagnostic and treatment options. If you have daytime sleepiness, wake up often during the night, wake up tired or if you snore, schedule this consultation early in your stay to allow time for additional testing. If appropriate, an unmonitored, overnight, in-room sleep study to check for common sleep disorders – including apnea, hypopnea and respiratory-related arousals – is available.
Note: If you are unable to fall asleep or wake up too early, we recommend a Sleep Enhancement/Insomnia consultation.

Focus on natural ways of preventing illness and addressing chronic health conditions. A comprehensive discussion of your health history, a review of your body’s systems and nontraditional laboratory testing help the naturopathic doctor to evaluate you from a natural perspective. Food allergies or intolerances, impaired detoxification, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances are just a few of the problems that may contribute to chronic conditions such as arthritis, asthma, eczema, allergies, fatigue and lingering infections. Your naturopathic doctor can prescribe a treatment plan that may include diet and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, herbs, homeopathy and acupuncture. This approach is complementary to traditional treatments.
Learn how the principles of ayurveda, the ancient medical system of India, can clarify your self-care. Ayurvedic medicine provides a model for diagnosis, prevention and treatment that focuses on the total health of each person based on “doshas.” Doshas are physical, emotional and mental constitutions or “types.” When the doshas are balanced you enjoy optimal health and peace of mind; when they are out of balance you feel lack of energy, pain and illness. During this consultation with a physician, learn how imbalances in your constitution relate to any health concerns you may have, and discuss recommendations including diet, exercise and herbs for restoring health.
This evaluation emphasizes health maintenance and disease prevention. A physician will perform a physical exam and consult with you to review findings and provide recommendations for better health.
Note: Optional lab tests and additional tests such as Pap test, Cardiac Stress Test or Osteoporosis Prevention & Bone Density Evaluation may be added for an additional fee.
