Clinical Nutrition refers to both the use of food and diet to not only optimize health and emphasize a healthy relationship with food, but also to assist the healing of various illnesses. At Los Gatos Naturopathic Medicine, a personalized nutrition program consisting of appropriate dietary changes and supplements (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, etc.) will be developed upon a careful assessment of your unique nutritional and biochemical needs. Weight loss and increased energy can be much easier to attain and maintain when taking a holistic approach rather than attempting potentially dangerous "fad" diets.
The use of plants and plant extracts to promote healing is based on centuries of traditional use and has been validated by an ever growing body of scientific research. By combining the best of ancient knowledge with the latest scientific research Naturopathic Doctors are uniquely positioned to recommend those products that are best suited for your particular health concern.

Homeopathy works by stimulating the body's own natural ability to heal itself. Its basic principles date back to Hippocrates and were further developed almost two hundred years ago by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. Homeopathic remedies, which are energized preparations derived from natural substances like herbs, minerals and animal products, provoke a healing response in an individual's vital force treating the root causes of illnesses which may include emotional conditions.
Hahnemann's discovery was that a substance causing a symptom in a healthy person would cure that same symptom in a sick person or "like cures like." Homeopathy is a part of standard medical care in Europe, India, and South America and some American doctors are beginning to integrate homeopathy into their practices.
