Our Specialties and Treatments

Tacoma Health Natural Medicine Office in Tacoma, WA

Naturopathic physicians Dr. Andrew Iverson and Dr. Cy Fisher of TACOMA HEALTH in Tacoma strive to go above and beyond to meet all your natural medicine and naturopathic family medical needs.

Besides performing a conventional physical exam, we specialize in metabolic chemistry analysis which identifies nutritional and chemical imbalances through testing the urine and saliva. In addition to this and ordering traditional blood work, we also may run tests to determine hormone levels and/or adrenal function, food allergies, and heavy metal burden. In every patient we utilize reflex challenge testing (applied kinesiology or muscle testing), iridology, tongue reading, and reactive vital signs to help us form a clearer picture on how to treat one's unique metabolic needs.

Each person's treatment is determined by analyzing their unique chemistry pattern and balanced with diet and nutritional support. Reflex challenge testing and magnetic field therapy allow us to put specific focus on any organ systems or treat low grade infections that need additional clearing. When needed, we also will perform physical adjustments to the spine (as you would with a chiropractor or osteopath) and utilize injection therapies like biopuncture (injection of homeopathic medicines in trigger points or reflex points) and neural therapy (scar treatment with procaine). Cold lasers, LED, and infrared light therapies are also proving to be excellent methods to stimulate healing and promoting detoxification in our patients. Upon request, we can provide intra-muscular injections of B12 (methycobalamin), folic acid, and other B vitamins as well as the famous Myer's cocktail or "immune pushes" in the form of an IV infusion.

Naturopathic Doctors in Tacoma, WashingtonIn addition to balancing your personal chemistry through specific dietary recommendations and pH balance (ACID or ALKALINE balance), your treatment may include cleansing and detoxification of the organs, blood, and tissues of environmental chemicals, pesticides, solvents, and heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, and lead. Low grade infections from bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites are eliminated with botanical cleanses and colon hydrotherapy to remove the infection and promote healthy good bacterial balance. We commonly find that nutritional deficiencies and chemical toxicity is the main cause of imbalanced hormones. We may additionally treat with bio-identical hormones, known as natural hormones, if we feel the patient still needs further support.

We believe strongly in the healing properties of water when utilized as colon hydrotherapy also named COLONICS and other forms of hydrotherapy utilizing hot and cold water applications in addition to herbal cleansing. In specific cases, we may guide a patient through the more intensive treatments of JUICE FASTING or WATER FASTING once the body is balanced through nutrition and other simple detoxification methods. We find that fasting can create a shift in healing when many other therapies fail to respond.

Let us not forget the healing potential of the mind! We put a very strong emphasis on healing the mental-emotional body and the symptoms that it may cause through daily stress and past repressions. Emotions associated with grief, guilt, sadness, and anger often result in anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain. Commonly such mental-emotional stressors can also result in chronic headaches, digestive complaints, skin symptoms, allergies, menstruation imbalances, and sexual symptoms to name a few. We spend a considerable time in every intake to identify if a patient's symptoms could be caused by an emotional component.
