Homeopathic Medicine

This gentle yet effective system of medicine is based on the principle that, “Like cures Like.” Homeopathic medicines are very small doses of natural substances that can stimulate the body’s self healing response bio-energetically rather than bio-chemically. Some conditions for which conventional medicine has no effective treatment, responds well to homeopathy.

Botanical Medicine

Plants have powerful healing properties. Many pharmaceutical drugs have their origin in plant substances. Because plants are organic in nature, they are more compatible with body chemistry. Combinations of medicinal plants result in a synergistic effect and act as powerful medicines at therapeutic dosages.

Clinical Nutrition

Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements. Naturopathic physicians my utilize specific diets along with fasting and nutritional supplements. Individual diets are considered once food allergies have been tested.

Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine

Naturopathic physicians are trained in the fundamentals of oriental medicine and diagnosis.  Utilizing acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese herbs to promote healing, stimulate “Chi” and balance energetic meridians.

Lifestyle Counseling and Stress Management

Mental attitudes and emotional states are important elements in healing and disease. Naturopathic physicians are trained in counseling, stress management and bio-feedback. We attend to environmental and lifestyle factors that affect patients health.

Natural Hormone or Bioidentical Hormones

Have a chemical structure that exactly matches the chemical structure your body produces by the ovaries, adrenal glands or testes. These hormones come from the yam plant, soybean plant or barbasco plant.

The first step is to get a baseline and measure your levels of estrone, estradiol, estriol, progesterone, DHEA and cortisol. Comparing your female hormone levels to the healthy range for your age will help Dr. Hokayem in evaluating how hormone replacement therapy will influence your hormone levels. Dosing is on an individualized analysis. the best dose is unique to each patient and based on medical and family history, current health, personal habits and symptoms.

This is used in treatment for the symptoms of:

  • Menopause
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Endometriosis
  • Postpartum depression
  • Infertility
  • Polycystic Ovaries
  • Hypoadrenals
  • Andropause
  • Osteoporosis

Heavy Metal Chelation

The amount of heavy metals stored in the body can be a cause for a wide variety of neurological and hormonal problems ranging from unexplained irritability, depression, numbness and tingling to unexplained chronic fatigue.

Mercury is a poisonous metal that can come from the environment (food, water or air), from dental amalgams, or from direct ingestion of mercury compounds.

A urine test is performed after administration of the metal chelator DMSA (which acts as a magnet) to evaluate the body burden of Mercury and other toxic heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, cadmium and nickel. DMSA is used to facilitate the release of mercury and selected other metals that might be in tissues or other locations not part of the circulatory system. After the administration of DMSA, heavy metals are then eliminated into the urine, which is sent to the lab for measurement by atomic absorption and emission spectrometric techniques. If lab values reveal an increase in heavy metal burden on the body, a baseline is established. Dr. Hokayem will discuss treatment options.

Homeopathy-Biotherapeutic Drainage

Is a treatment method that employs the use of Unda formulas, which were formulated on the basis of homeopathic medicine. This treatment is aimed at supporting the body’s natural routes of elimination by “drainage” or “detoxifying” specific organs of the body . This process returns organs and tissues to the normal function. It is powerfully effective at restoring the body from chronic illness, allowing profound healing.

The remedies are made up of diluted plant, minerals and metals. The plants have an affinity for particular organs and tissue systems and are the “carriers” of the metals and minerals, thereby directing treatments to the appropriate body system.

Nutritional Blood Testing

Every body is different- so how is it that some doctors prescribe generic multi-vitamins?

At Medicine By Nature we perform thorough testing and proper evaulation before formulating our patient’s customized nutritional supplement plans.
