Let yourself

Proactive, preventive and personalized healthcare created to address your unique health challenges

Our Approach: 
the dynamic of you

You are unique and there is only one you on the planet.

Our functional medicine approach looks at the root causes of imbalance or dysfunction in your body. We look at your specific biological terrain to assess why symptoms developed in the first place.

We view the body as a whole complete system rather than as individual parts. The whole system includes your body, mind and spirit and these are all in dynamic communication with one another. True lasting health comes from addressing all the layers step by step, in order to heal from the inside out.

We partner with you to create a holistic, personalized treatment plan specific to you and your needs and we monitor and adjust based on your body’s response.

We look forward to partnering with you on your journey to flourishing!

Anna Rider’s
healing story

There comes a point when you have to start listening to your own body. Ideally, some of us pick up the cues early and start to respond and heal. Others of us wait until the body screams louder and louder until you have no choice but to pay attention. This was my experience…

…I took an all-encompassing approach to wholeness and healing for my body, mind, and spirit. With this approach I started to experience results.

What is the difference between Nurse Practitioners and Naturopathic Doctors?

Nurse Practitioners vs Naturopathic Doctors
The main difference is in our background and experience. Nurse Practitioners have a background in nursing and have worked in a broad variety of clinical settings within the health care system. NPs have the skill and knowledge to diagnose conditions, order and interpret diagnostic tests, and prescribe medications. Through integration with conventional health care, Anna (NP) combines her clinical knowledge and broad experience with a functional medicine lens. Functional medicine supports personalized patient care and investigates the root cause of an individual’s symptoms, and employs a widespread of treatment strategies that are tailored to the person. This can include lifestyle improvements, nutraceuticals (supplements) or herbal medicine, nutritional changes, prescriptions if indicated, and occasionally further diagnostic testing is required to investigate further. It is a comprehensive, holistic approach.
Naturopathic Doctors have a background in naturopathy (the study of natural medicine) and work in private clinics. They learn about homeopathy and botanical medicine, which are forms of complementary/alternative medicine that involve herbs/plants. They also learn about acupuncture, which has its origin in Traditional Chinese medicine. They use all the different modalities in their treatment plans. Most have an area of focus/ specialty area in their practice. Their ability to order diagnostic tests in the health care system is limited to bloodwork and they have a limited list of drugs they can prescribe. Not all NDs have the authority to prescribe as it requires extra certification.
