Naturopathic medicine is a centuries-old system of health care that uses a functional and holistic approach to address the underlying imbalances that lead to disease.
By using modern diagnostic tools and protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic doctors (NDs) help to pinpoint the imbalance and facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.
At Emerald Integrated Health, Dr. Grace Charles, ND provides individualized natural health care. With training in both conventional medicine and holistic care, Dr. Charles is well suited to help patients determine which approach is most appropriate. She combines clinical nutrition, lifestyle counseling, targeted nutrient therapy, and herbal medicine to treat the patient, not the disease.
Dr. Charles focuses on hormone systems, and is especially equipped to work with patients who have fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders, blood sugar issues, irregular or difficult periods, perimenopause, or infertility. Dr. Charles is also a licensed acupuncturist. Her acupuncture treatments target stress and anxiety, which can be at the root of many health conditions.
Dr. Charles often works with patients who are overwhelmed with the natural health information they find online, who would prefer expert guidance to help them meet their health goals.
