I have a primary care practice treating acute and chronic conditions with an additional emphasis in women’s health, fertility and cancer support. Through our visits, I will educate you about all facets of your health. I believe it is important for you to understand your disease process so that you understand the steps and strategies to gain the health you desire, life long. Whether you have cancer, allergies, pelvic pain, infertility, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue or digestive concerns, you will receive my undivided attention during your appointment so that together we can work towards reaching your optimal health state.
Your initial visit includes a detailed history, a physical exam and ordering of diagnostic labs. I will then provide you an individualized treatment plan consisting of nutritional counseling, exercise and movement ideas, stress management, natural supplementation, detoxification, IV therapy, and if needed pharmaceuticals and bioidentical hormones.
I have been trained by Walter Crinnion, in environmental medicine which stimulated my desire to learn more about genetic polymorphisms. My continuing eduction courses with Ben Lynch, who has done extensive research into the MTHFR enzyme, have provided me with a foundation to combine the knowledge of how our environment and our genetics together impact our health.
Cancer is an ever-growing epidemic in our lives. It seems to touch more and more of us each day. I am an active member of the ONCANP which is our naturopathic association specializing in oncology. My goal of integrative cancer care is to support my patients during their chemotherapy, radiation and surgical options. There are many treatment modalities that will assist patients and improve quality of life, reduce side effects and often create a positive synergistic reaction with the chemotherapy. After treatments have been completed I assist patients in maintaining a healthy, balanced and desired quality of life.
Women’s health is an area that I have specialized in since I was a resident. In addition, to helping women balance their hormones and providing bio-identical hormones as women age, I also offer well women exams. I have incorporated the skills that I have gained through training with author and physical therapist, Tami Kent in her practice of Holistic Pelvic Care ™. These techniques have proven to reduce, and in many cases eliminate, the dysfunction and pain that women have been living with in their pelvic bowl tissues, muscles and organs. Whether you have concerns with fertility or are looking for preconception counseling and care, birth control options, support with chronic conditions that include hormonal imbalances or peri / menopausal concerns, I am here to help you reach your your desired health goals.
I look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Lisa Dickinson
