What We Do
Principles that found Naturopathy go back to the “father of Medicine”
Hippocrates of ancient Greece. Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine
which focuses on the importance of our lifestyle, fresh air, exercise,
sunshine, wholesome diet, pure water, healthy environment, rest and
emotional balance, blending centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies
with today’s most conventional medical treatments.
The Principles of Naturopathy
- Primum Non Nocere ~ First of all, do no
- Vix Medicatrix Naturae ~ To act in cooperation
with the Healing Power of Nature.
- Tolle Causam ~ To address the fundamental
Cause of the disease, not just to suppress symptoms.
- Tolle Totum ~ To heal the whole person
(body, mind and spirit) through Individualized treatment.
- Docere ~ To teach the principles of healthy
living and Preventative Medicine.

and treatment. However, naturopathic Physicians also receive in-depth
training in alternative modalities such as: clinical nutrition, Botanical
Medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, and mind-body/lifestyle counseling.

states, such as New Mexico, the term “Naturopath” could also
refer to someone who has received a certificate through home study in
Homeopathy, Herbology and other modalities, but has not had any formal
medical training such as Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology etc...

Sie’s The Day / NAET
Sie has developed her own method of releasing negative thoughts, emotions,
beliefs, perceptions, vows and curses, called the “Sie’s
the Day technique.” This technique is extremely effective at getting
to the cause of emotional and mental imbalance. It is extremely quick,
powerful and effective.
Dr. Sie utilizes
her extensive training with her allergy elimination technique. She combines
the Nambudripad Allergy
Elimination Technique with her Sie’s the Day Technique and
Holographic Memory Resolution to quickly and effectively eliminate allergies
and sensitivities and bring the body back into balance. The NAET aspect
of the treatment uses kinesiology or muscle response testing to evaluate
allergies/sensitivities of food, environment, people, or even one’s
own hormones or organs and treats/desensitizes an individual through
acupressure and a 25 hour elimination of the allergen. The Sie’s
the Day Technique uses kinesiology to determine all the negative emotions,
beliefs, and traumas that have been wrongly associated with the allergen
by the body and then uses acupressure to open up the energy flow to
reprogram the nervous system.
The benefits of
Dr. Sie’s Allergy Desensitization treatments have resulted in
patients reporting no more allergy symptoms, even previous anaphylactic
reactions, hives, bloating, chronic migraines, rashes, leg pains, gas,
joint pains, chronic coughing and phlegm, brain fog, obstructed breathing,
nausea, spontaneous sweating, and typical hay fever symptoms to name
a few. Some wonderful benefits of the treatments have also included
lower blood pressure in several cases, increased energy and stamina,
increased sex drive, elimination of PMS symptoms, enhanced marriages
and family life and decrease or eliminate the need for prescription
technique is a treatment that involves tapping directly into the nervous
system in order to treat allergies, autoimmune problems, nerve disorders
or any other malady affected by the nervous system. Developed by Dr.
Les Feinberg, NMT taps into a basic truth: your nervous system already
knows what is going on in your body and is trying to correct the situation.
The problem is that it's not yet succeeding.
NMT works with
the nervous system and immune system to focus and refine what it is
already trying to do. Sometimes the body gets confused, which results
in disorders such as allergies, neurological conditions, digestive disorders,
autoimmune conditions or pain syndromes. NMT finds out where the confusion
is, and then directs the body to the proper path for correction and
NMT is non-invasive
and non-disruptive. It involves no pills or needles. First the body
is 'asked' about the problem, using muscle testing. Then back points
are stimulated to focus the body's attention to solve the problem.
Many patients report marked improvement or pain relief after one session,
although long-standing conditions may require a series of treatments.
NMT targets the source. Rather than working on individual allergies
or reactions, NMT works with the nervous system to stop the tendency
to have allergies or undue reactions. Because NMT goes to the heart
of the problem, it works faster than its predecessors, N.A.E.T. or J.M.T.

of them include the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese, and East Indians.

ULTRA LITE program is not just another diet; it is system that can help
you control your weight for the rest of your life. The ULTRA LITE program
is the result of many years of research by Melbourne based naturopath
Tony Le Vannais.N.D. Now over 400 certified clinics are successfully
using the system to help their clients lose weight & feel great
at the same time. The Ultra Lite program will encourage your body to
convert your stored body fat into energy while preserving your body’s
protein. This means that you only lose UNWANTED FAT and not lean muscle
tissue. The majority of weight loss programs reduce your protein and
carbohydrate levels too low which results in muscle loss. This can create
the appearance of drawn features and baggy skin. With ULTRA LITE your
body tone improves as you lose weight so you can actually become firmer
as your original body shape returns. The Ultra Lite program requires
you to eat three balanced meals a day. Unlike some weight loss programs,
all of the meals on the ULTRA LITE program contain everyday foods you
will find in your kitchen. So there is no need to do special shopping
trips or prepare separate meals for other members of the family. The
Ultra Lite program provides you with a correct nutritional balance designed
to suit your particular health needs. With the correct balances of nutritional
supplements, your body performs better, your brain clears and your memory
sharpens. You will also feel a new zest for life as your energy levels
are enhanced. The phenomenal results speak for themselves. In the first
week, most people lose between five to ten pounds, followed by three
to six pounds each week thereafter.
ULTRA LITE is
a weight management program not just a diet. You will learn to manage
your weight and enjoy a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life.
ULTRA LITE is only available from a registered health practitioner so
you can feel secure knowing that your total health interests are taken
The ULTRA LITE
program is simple, affordable and easy to apply. Once you learn the
principles of the program you will be able to effectively manage your

Memory Resolution is a new body-mind technique, which allows expedient
access to past memories and complete resolution of the painful emotions
associated with these events without having to "re-live" such
experiences. This technique is profoundly empowering to the survivor
who becomes his/her own "healer." H.M.R. employs both a verbal
component and a simple electromagnetic field technique, which enhances
visualization while fostering safety. This "client-centered"
process facilitates the resolution of "somatic (body) memory,"
thereby disarming the "triggers" that foster physical pain,
flashback, disease and relapse. Individuals who normally cannot visualize,
be hypnotized, or access memory, generally find this process simple
and effective. Traumatic experiences form the foundation of our addictions,
depression, diseases, and many chronic pain syndromes, as well as many
other "disorders." Holographic Memory Resolution teaches the
client how to heal him/herself, resolving the emotions, which anchored
the experience in the past, and enables the client to return the focus
of life to living fully empowered in the present.

is a non-toxic system of medicine used to treat illness and relieve
discomfort of a wide variety of health conditions. It is practiced by
licensed physicians and other qualified prescribers in many regions
of the world, including Europe, Asia, the U.K., and the USA. Information
on the use of several hundred remedies has been collected for nearly
two centuries by homeopathic practitioners, through research studies
known as “provings,” as well as documented clinical cases
and recent scientific trials.
In Germany, where
homeopathy originated, it is required study in medical school and there
are over 6,000 homeopaths. In France, 40% of physicians practice homeopathy
or refer patients to a homeopath. In India, there are over 100,000 homeopathic
physicians, and Mother Teresa used homeopathic medicines in her hospital
in Calcutta. It is estimated that over 500 million people around the
world have received homeopathic treatment.
of homeopathy in treating a wide variety of health conditions has been
demonstrated by two hundred years of clinical experience, and also by
research studies published in medical journals such as The Lancet and
The British Medical Journal.
Chinese Medicine originated in China over 2,300 years ago. Traditional
Chinese Medicine is a way of restoring health, developed by studying
"the laws of nature" and is based primarily on metaphors of
nature. Early Chinese philosophers and physicians formed theories of
imbalances of the human body based on the prevailing conditions that
they witnessed in the surrounding environment. A cold wind, for example,
might get someone sick and they would have chills, a headache, and a
runny nose. And they found that if they used certain herbs and therapies
that the person would get better much faster that those who were not
premise of TCM is that Qi (energy) flows through the body in predictable
patterns through Meridians (energy pathways.) When the Qi flows freely,
there is inner harmony and balance and we feel healthy. When there are
problems in the flow of Qi we will experience pain and disease. Through
observation and experimentation ancient doctors could alleviate pain
and reverse disease though acupuncture techniques to restore the normal
flow of Qi in the body. The useful theories and techniques were passes
on and those that did not work were not passed on. As Oriental medicine
moves into its third millennium of practice it continues to evolve as
a truly integrative form of medicine.
Hands on Healing / Physical
Hoffman and Dr. Sie are both Reiki masters and have combined their training
in Craniosacral techniques, Naturopathic physical manipulation, Bowen,
Chinese Tui Na, and Energy medicine to create a very special hands on
healing experience. Most patients find the work extraordinary and very
relaxing, depending on the techniques used. On the physical level, the
techniques help to realign the spine, the cranium bones, and enhance
circulation. On an energetic and intuitive level, chakras, organ systems,
and energy are balanced, and often traumas are unwound or released from
the tissue memory, overall, resulting in enhanced well being and often
elimination of symptoms. On special request, Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Sie
will work in tandem on a patient.

comprised of a series of precise and profoundly elegant moves which
stimulate energy flow, promoting relaxation and activating the body's
natural healing mechanism and has produced amazing results around the

At this time I

to choose from and rarely see a need for this modality. If this is this

work something out.
