NATUROPATHIC FAMILY MEDICINE

Modern Naturopathic Medicine is an eclectic blend of evidence-based conventional medicine, nutrition, spinal manipulation, counseling, herbal therapies, and education.Naturopathic doctors believe in the healing power of nature.

Therapies are often aimed at gently correcting the underlying obstacle or deficiency that is getting in the way of your body’s natural tendency to heal itself. However, ND’s are not averse to prescription medications when indicated. In many states (not Alaska), NDs can prescribe medications.

NON-PHARMACEUTICAL PAIN MANAGEMENT

Dr. May has had extensive training and experience in spinal and extremity manipulation, corrective exercise prescription, gait and posture analysis, myofascial techniques (fascial distortion model, active release technique, Ki-Hara, cupping, etc.) and orthotic fitting. He uses these techniques, along with nutrient and herbal therapies, to reduce inflammation and restore function.

There are no quick 15 minute “rack’em and crack’em” sessions here. Dr. May spends at least 30 minutes per session, utilizing multiple techniques, to get you back to functioning like you want.

WEIGHT LOSS

There is a lot of bad and even harmful information out there about how to lose weight. Dr. May gains from his 12 years as a personal trainer and extensive education in nutrition to provide you with safe and effective methods to lose weight that includes genetic and metabolic testing.

If you’re looking for a lose weight quick plan, Dr. May is not your man. He guides you through an intense first 8 weeks and then provides support for several weeks to months, while educating you the entire time on how to keep the weight off. This is a lifestyle change, not a “fad diet”. Dr. May’s patients lose weight and they keep it off.

HYPOTHYROIDISM

Tired of the same ole treatment for your hypothyroid? Has it stopped working? Is your doctor “chasing” your lab numbers and constantly adjusting your medication?

Dr. May has a different approach to hypothyroidism, which includes nutrition, epigenetics, herbal therapies, and adrenal support. He looks at the whole picture, not just your thyroid. Plus, he spends whatever time is needed to make sure your questions are answered and that you understand exactly what is going on with your body and how to treat it.

DIABETES AND METABOLIC SYNDROME

It’s estimated that by 2020, 52% of American adults will have either diabetes or prediabetes! If you have pre-diabetes or have a family history, be proactive and do something before medication becomes a necessity.

Dr. May specializes in an aggressive, proactive approach to treating blood sugar dysregulation with evidencebased nutrition, exercise counseling, behavioral modification, and herbal therapies.

FOOD ALLERGY AND SENSITIVITIES

Food allergies and sensitivities can play a factor in many conditions and syndromes such as ADHD, rashes, ear infections, sinus infection, and multiple digestive symptoms (IBS, gas/bloating, constipation/diarrhea, etc.). It may also be a factor in difficulty losing weight.

Elimination diets work but they take a long to figure out. Testing is available to help you figure that out much quicker. Dr. May will then help you navigate through how to rotate and/or eliminate certain foods for particular time periods.
