Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary healthcare system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. A naturopathic doctor (ND) aims to treat the underlying cause of disease and restore the body’s proper function. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Dr. Annie Gibson, ND has a general practice in which she treats the whole family for all kinds of health concerns. Her areas of expertise, which she particularly enjoys treating are:
- Digestive Issues
- Stress Management and Energy Renewal
- Weight Loss
- Hormone Balancing
Her training allows her to treat patients using both naturopathic and conventional approaches, including prescription medications when necessary. Dr. Gibson uses thorough history taking, hands-on physical exams, and lab testing to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Then she addresses your health concerns with research-based treatments, chosen to fit your goals and lifestyle.
To help her patients with stubborn joint and ligament injuries, Dr. Gibson has also taken further training to become certified in advanced injection therapy (prolotherapy) for peripheral joints (shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow).
