Brian D. Jones & Me

Dr. Brian Jones
What exactly is Naturopathy and what does a Naturopathic Consultant do?

Brian D. Jones: "Firstly, the Naturopath approach is, 'Letting Our Body Teach Us to Heal.'  In a world that sometimes may seem too much to handle, I, in correspondence with Power to Heal, work to renew and restore energy and power to our mind, body, and spirit in ways that will assist clients to invite and expand purpose, power, and passion into their everday lives.

I offer consulting and Natural Health approaches for common and chronic conditions.  Clients include children through mature adults.

While often working with excellent traditional medical care, I am able to provide complimentary approaches to conditions such as cancer, diabetes, thyroid, hormonal and digestive conditions, men's and women's health, learning and behavioral issues, eldercare, as well as weight and stress management, to name a few.  Often, care of this type is able to provide comfort and relief as well as unlock answers to chronic conditions. 
Naturopathy can often offer possible approaches to many common conditions, too.

Offering approaches to healing known as 'The Nature Cure,' I base my approach on the active participation of my clients, sound nutrition, restoring and expanding cellular energy and nutrient balance, opening elimination channels, and detoxification.  To do this, following an initial dialogue and evaluation, Naturopaths educate and empower clients to make choices about utilizing natural substances such as herbal and homeopathic preparations, natural and organic vitamins, supplements, and enzymes as well as natural bodywork, natural herbal and botanical skin care, exercise and fitness, and social and emotional consulting to assist clients in making choices on how they wish to approach achieving optimal health."
