Lifestyle Counseling

General lifestyle counseling regarding exercise, diet, habits, as well as psychological counseling are a part of treating all aspects of every individual. Did you know that even with a higher genetic risk of heart disease, a favorable lifestyle is associated with a nearly 50% lower relative risk of coronary artery disease than was an unfavorable lifestyle? This is according to a 2016 research study titled Genetic Risk, Adherence to a Healthy Lifestyle, and Coronary Disease. We can help you reach towards the lifestyle that you want and need to live optimally!

B12 Shots

Naturopathy Lifestyle Counseling

B12 is very important for the nervous system, energy and memory.

B12 Shots are very helpful for those individuals who do not absorb vitamins well through their digestive system. This is especially the case with celiac and inflammatory bowel disorders and for those over 50 years old. As people get older the stomach’s acid naturally decreases thus decreasing Vitamin B12 absorption.
