About

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct healing science and philosophy that blends traditional natural therapies with current advances in the study of human health.

Naturopathic Medicine treats the underlying nature or cause of disease; it is the art and science of supporting the natural healing processes of the patient; the removal of any impediment to the healing process; the prevention and treatment of physical and mental diseases, disorders and conditions; and the promotion of good health using not only natural methods but methods that support and enhance a patient’s overall health.

    Women’s Health Tidbits

    In most families, the woman is likely to lead in the health decisions for not only herself, but also for her spouse and children.  Women tend to be more proactive and holistic in their attitudes and often see the “big picture” better than men.  A woman’s unique anatomy and physiology makes her prone to many medical circumstances foreign to a man.  Menstrual issues, birth control, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, breast health, gynecological cancers and osteoporosis are just a few examples.  Eating disorders, body shaming and sexual and domestic violence are other gender specific problems that women are forced to confront.

    Other significant health threats that are often overlooked in a woman’s life are as follows:

    Heart disease:  most common cause of death in women, underdiagnosed because the public thinks it’s a man’s disease, often appears silently.

    Depression:  2x as many women suffer with depression than men.

    Autoimmune diseases:  3x as many women suffer with conditions like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, MS etc. than men.

    Alzheimer’s disease:  higher incidence in women causing progressive neuro-degeneration and dementia.

    Stroke, COPD, Diabetes, and Pneumonia are all other common female ailments.

    At KNC, we strive to assist women of all ages and stages in their lives to achieve wellness, physically and emotionally. Specific tests and strategies are employed to help women, with whatever health challenges present, to find meaningful solutions.  A healthy woman, wife, mother, sister, aunt or grandmother, makes the family and community healthier.  Got questions, give the clinic a call.
