First, let me state that I am not a dermatologist. I am a primary care doctor (PCP) with a specific interest in dermatology. Through this passion, and learning from a few wonderful dermatologists and dermatology-focused doctors, I’ve become a Naturopathic Primary Care doctor with a focus in dermatology. The reality is, in primary care, we cannot escape dermatology; 25% of our appointments involve skin concerns. The skin is our largest organ, and our internal health or disease easily manifests on this gateway between our internal and external environment.
Now, because of this, I know many pediatricians and general medicine doctors that cringe when they see “rash” on their schedule. To our defense, rashes look very similar, and require very systematic investigation if the diagnosis is not readily apparent in office. With that said, I admittedly cringe a little each time a patient shares with me in office, “I was diagnosed with a rash by my doctor”, often followed by “x cream was prescribed” and they don’t know why. Now, they wouldn’t be sitting in my office for a second opinion if x or y therapy had worked, or more specifically, they had cured the “rash”. Read More
~~Knowing what you are eating is of the utmost importance these days. The use of pesticides and other chemicals on crops is very common, and in some cases, very harmful to those who ingest the chemicals. The Dirty Dozen list will help you identify the most harmful choices when selecting produce, so you know when to select only organic.
Each year the Environmental Working Group puts out a list of foods that you should choose from the organic section whenever possible, called the Dirty Dozen. The information they have provided in their article below will make you understand the importance of this and the impact on your health.
You will also learn about the Clean Fifteen, which are items you do not need to be as cautious about when selecting them at the grocery store. Read More

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is stiffness, severe pain, and limited range of movement in your shoulder. It may happen after an injury, overuse or from health issues such as diabetes or a stroke. The tissues around the joint stiffen, scar tissue forms, and shoulder movements become difficult and extremely painful. The condition usually comes on slowly, and then goes away even more slowly taking a year or more for recovery.
Many people can’t get through their daily activities such as dressing, driving, typing at a computer and simple lifting due to the severe pain and restricted motion. Sleep is generally interrupted as well. However, before assuming what you have is frozen shoulder, see our doctors to rule out other conditions or injuries through physical testing and imaging.

What if there was something you could do to be sick less often? What if it was something you had control over, something about your body that you could influence to feel better and protect against disease? Read More
