(6)

At NOVA Family Health you will be seen by Dr. Vicki Walker, a licensed Naturopath who attained her degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. You can bring any health concerns to Dr. Vicki that you would go to your traditional family doctor for. The difference at NOVA Family Health is that you'll have natural remedies recommended to you and the goal will always be to see you as a WHOLE person and facilitate your body's ability to heal itself. A core tenet of Naturopathy is "removing the obstacle to cure" where the doctor helps figure out why you are sick in the first place and gives your body what it needs to heal itself. "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas Edison

Mission: My intent is to bridge Naturopathic Medicine with the masses, to improve the health status of the United States, to discuss current issues in the medical world, and to be forthcoming and honest while doing it.

Naturopath Heal Thyself

My respiratory system is my weak link. If a malicious microbe is going to best my immune system I will end up with strep throat or bronchitis. So last week when I discovered the lymph nodes in my neck were swollen I took immediate action. Here is what I did to make sure I recovered quickly and strengthened my immune system in the process: http://learnchangelive.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/naturopath-heal-thyself/

Last week I began feeling a little under the weather. I was irritable, I had a headache, my neck hurt and my throat was sore. I didn't put it all together until I reached for my lymph nodes and m...

RSA Shorts - The Power of Empathy

Depression is a serious mental illness and it doesn't help that our society teaches us to stuff emotions and change the subject rather than process, share and connect. Please use Robin Williams' suicide as a wake up call. Watch this short video and become aware of empathy. Our friends need connection not answers. RIP Robin Williams. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw

When it comes to labeling cosmetics there aren't great laws regulating what can and can't be done. Parabens can be listed on ingredient labels as "plant extracts" (since parabens are made from plants). So reading labels is no longer enough. If a product comes out and says "paraben free" it is a safer bet than a product that just doesn't list parabens as an ingredient.

HOW TO Give Your Dog Cardiopulmonary Cerebral Resuscitation (CPCR or CPR) - Find A Vet

At NOVA Family Health we love fur-people too. Here is an article on giving CPR to a dog (or cat). I have looked for this resource for a while. I'm glad to have found it. http://www.findavet.us/2010/04/how-to-give-your-dog-cardiopulmonary-cerebral-resuscitation-cpcr-or-cpr/

Find A Vet would like to focus specifically on the use of cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR) as a life-saving technique that can make all the difference in an emergency when a pet parent must act quickly until veterinary professionals can intervene.
