Our Clinic
Welcome to Holistic Healthcare Options, LLC. Our doctor, Dr. Carrie Kaiser, MA, ND, is a primary care physician fully trained in all aspects of medical care from a naturopathic perspective.
 
Naturopathy is an age-old system of health care based on uncovering the cause of the illness and treating the whole person, rather than just treating symptoms. 
 
Naturopaths take time to talk to you, perform appropriate physical exams - looking deeply for the cause of the problem -  then utilize natural healing treatments to help you feel good again. Naturopathic medicine strives to help the body, mind and spirit return to wholeness and well-being.
Naturopaths honor and revere the valuable information that comes from the conventional medical system and strive to work with that system - not against it, not apart from it. The best model of medicine is one that is comprehensive - integrating the best of all models.

The Six Principles
of Naturopathic Medicine


First, Do No Harm
Understand, honor and participate inthe healing process:
Use methods and medicines which minimize the risk of harmful side effects;
Avoid the harmful suppression of symptoms;
Acknowledge and respect the individual's healing process, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat the illness


Identify the Cause
Look deep and wide, assemble all the information --
treat the cause, not the symptom


Use the Healing Power of Nature
Work with Mother Nature!
Pay attention to what your body is telling you.
Listen to and follow the innate intelligence of your body.


Treat the Whole Person
Body, mind, spirit. biology, genetics, environment.
Health and well-being are not only physical
and are influenced by much more than bacteria.


Doctor as Teacher
Educate and empower individuals to be proactive and participative in their well-being.


Prevention
"An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure."
