Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is best described as an umbrella term that encompasses effective natural treatments. The best combination of therapies is picked and a treatment plan is customized according to your main health concerns.

Treatment programs typically last six months. It consists of an in-depth history intake, lab test screening, diet counseling, natural medicines, and follow up visits to monitor your progress.

These treatments include:

Some commonly treated conditions include: arthritic conditions, depression & anxiety, digestive ailments, food & environmental allergies, heart disease, menopause, peri-menopause, PMS, seasonal allergies, and weight concerns. Dr. Kassam is your primary health care practitioner and does also see acute conditions such as colds, flu, and injuries (not needing emergency care).
