Why Naturopathic Medicine?
Heal With Nature
Naturopathic Medicine is a unique and distinct system of healthcare that emphasizes prevention and natural therapeutics. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) who practice this form of medicine are trained to serve as primary care general practitioners. They are experts in preventing, diagnosing, managing, and treating a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions.
PCOS, PMS, Fertility, Menopause
Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia
Chronic, Autoimmune, Unknown Cause
of Illness such as IBS, Eczema, Asthma
Joy is Medicine
You will quickly discover that joy is my secret ingredient. Healing can often feel overwhelming and daunting. However, by infusing joy into the diagnostic process, I create a serene, healthy, and uplifting environment that fosters healing.
The Big 3
Hormones, mood, and mystery illnesses are the primary focus of my practice. Through the development of specialized protocols incorporating nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and comprehensive test analysis, I address a wide range of health concerns, including sleep issues, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, fertility challenges, menopause, low testosterone, chronic fatigue, asthma, autoimmune conditions, and many others.
Cranial sacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that works with the bones and sacrospinal fluid of the head, spinal column and sacrum.
I went to see Dr. Blake as a stressed, tense, broken patient and she has been dedicated to identifying the underlying causes of my illness
and stress. I’m happy to report I’m now on a path to healing!
Before Dr. Blake, I suffered for years with adrenal fatigue and
hormonal imbalance, issues that no previous doctor had taken the time
to uncover. I appreciate that she considers lifestyle factors and makes recommendations that bring wellness to my whole self, not just the surface symptoms. It is a pleasure to visit with Dr. Blake because she is empathetic, she listens with intent to learn, and creates a customized, effective healing regimen. I've come a long way since I met her and I am incredibly grateful for her knowledge and guidance. I highly recommend!
