Welcome to Cross Natural Health – Naturopathic and Alternative Medicine Solutions in the Meridian and Boise, Idaho area
Providing comprehensive care and health consulting to families and people of all ages.
If you are interested in using alternative medicine but you don’t know where to start or you’ve been piecing together suggestions from the internet, friends and family, or different health care providers, I can help you formulate a customized plan to fit your needs.
I am a board certified, licensed Family Nurse Practitioner and I work with people of all ages from children to the elderly. Common conditions I work with include: women’s health concerns, thyroid disorders, digestive system complaints like heartburn and IBS, allergies, asthma, diabetes, fatigue, frequent colds or infections, school or work performance issues and sleep problems. Since naturopathic medicine aims to optimize health, not treat disease, anyone can benefit from naturopathic care.
Already feeling good? I can help you stay that way! Using nutrition, lifestyle counseling, and some nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic therapies, I can teach you how to keep yourself healthy in every stage of life.
I believe in old fashioned medicine, where the doc really listens to you. I also provide house calls! House call appointments are offered for sick patients and those that are house bound. Otherwise, I would be happy to see you in my office. Please click here or on the “booknow” button in the left sidebar to view my current schedule and open appointments. For out of area clients I can provide a phone, e-mail or skype consultation at a discounted price. Please contact me for more information.
What is Naturopathy and Natural Health?
Natural Health is improving your health and wellness through holistic and alternative medicine and by practicing healthy living. Natural health is for people seeking to improve their health by using natural remedies, products, foods and supplements to help with various health conditions.
Naturopathy blends very old natural, nontoxic therapies and treatments with current advances in the study of health, covering all aspects of family health from pediatric to geriatric care.
Naturopathic care concentrates on treating the whole person, tailoring treatment to the individual while emphasizing prevention and self care. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment.
What kind of medical issues can be improved?
Women: Fatigue, headaches, PMS, menopausal symptoms, infertility issues, sleep, allergies, decreased immune function, digestive issues, stress, weight loss, diabetes, thyroid disorders, anemia, morning sickness, depression, anxiety, etc.
Children: Asthma, allergies, school performance, fatigue, behavior issues, frequent colds or infections, sleep, food intolerances, etc.
