Naturopathic Medicine & Functional Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of medicine that emphasizes prevention and the use of natural therapeutics to support health. Naturopathic Medicine was developed in the United States over 100 years ago by Dr. Benedict Lust and has evolved into an integrative system of medicine that combines cutting edge diagnostic techniques and non-invasive therapies with an ancient philosophy of healing that draws on the holistic relationship of the body to nature.

Today, Naturopathic doctors are trained and licensed as primary care doctors, and are comfortable collaborating with your MD or other health practitioners to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible. Licensed naturopathic doctors have undergone four years of medical school at an accredited Naturopathic Medical University and have passed a national licensing exam.

Functional Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

At Revive Qi, we combine the modern science of Functional Medicine with the time-honored wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to give you comprehensive, effective care. Traditional Chinese Medicine has always shared the perspective of modern Functional Medicine, in that both are holistic, thorough, and aim to treat root causes of poor health or infertility. 

Functional Medicine seeks to identify root causes through lab testing. Instead of evaluating lab results simply to see whether your body's functions are outside of conventional normal ranges, we evaluate to understand where we can help optimize your body's functions. Chinese Medicine accomplishes detailed diagnosis through pulse, tongue, listening, and observation. Both systems consider how various organ systems work in harmony.

By fusing Functional Medicine & TCM approaches together and listening closely to what you tell us, we are able to better identify underlying patterns of imbalance and create a custom wellness plan leading to longer-lasting effects.

Depending on your needs, your wellness plans may include laboratory testing such as blood work, adrenal stress testing, food sensitivity testing, and salivary hormone testing. Dietary and lifestyle recommendations, supplements, and Chinese herbal formulas might be prescribed based on your test results. Your progress will always be closely monitored and modified when needed.

Your customized wellness plan may also include acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion therapy, qi gong, or energy medicine to relieve stress, ease pain, or promote hormone balancing. These modalities can help you experience results more quickly than you would with herbs and supplements alone.
