Naturopathy is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) teach their clients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease. NDs view the client as an interrelated system (a whole person), not as a clogged artery or a tumor. Naturopathic doctors craft comprehensive wellness plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only address disease, but to also restore health. When working with our clients, Dr. Naumes may use any number of the following therapies: Botanical Medicine, Environmental Medicine or Detoxification. The state of Texas does not license Naturopathic Doctors. As such, Dr. Naumes, ND holds her license in Vermont and acts in Texas as a wellness consultant, not as a physician (MD, DO).
