Optimal health is not simply the absence of disease,
it is living with a vitality that allows you to experience life as you desire.—Dr. Anja
Integrative Primary Care
All of the providers at WCN (Naturopathic doctors and Chinese Medicine specialists) are trained in primary care natural medicine. We share a belief in the innate healing capacity of the human body and we teach our patients how to optimize their health through diet, exercise, and natural remedies.
Blending the best of modern medical science with the traditional natural medicine approaches, we walk patients through a ladder of intervention that moves up from the least invasive, yet most effective methods possible, until we get to the health benefits the patient is seeking.
