Telemedicine & Wellness

I’m now nine months into having converted my practice into a tele-medicine platform and I have to say it has been a wonderful experience!

Tele-health appointments are incredibly flexible and effective.  These “home visits” focus on delivering effective medical and counseling treatments via virtual, video and/or phone appointments.  These platforms allow us to minimize the time and stress that a traditional office visit create on a busy person’s schedule.

One of my favorite and most effective applications of tele-health is with new mothers.  After my son was born, during my personal struggle with post-partum anxiety, I recognized the need for tele health services.  I was lucky enough to have a wonderful support system in my colleagues but it became evident that a professional service was necessary for those without such resources.

Most post-partum issues like anxiety, depression, malnourishment, nursing troubleshooting, insomnia etc can be managed by maintaining close contact with an objective perspective that focuses on the patient’s needs.  This is a period during which time is scarce and need for support and wellness management is at a premium.  Reflecting on it more deeply, I realize that not only is it effective in the specific context of women in need of post natal care but it has a much broader application for those with limited time and high stress lifestyles.

I first began incorporating virtual appointments about 5 years ago to patients with chronic illness and disabilities who were frequently homebound due to the flaring of acute symptoms.  The more variety of medical and counseling treatments I offer, and the more I connect with different patient’s tele-health needs across the globe, the more I am convinced that this avenue provides an high quality treatment planning platform for achieving optimal health with much greater ease.

If you or someone you know may benefit from establishing a tele-medicine based healthcare, please contact the office at (303) 803-7734 to schedule a complimentary 15 minute consultation.

Certain states in the US have laws against practice of naturopathic medicine, so that limits us from treating patients who live in those states. Those states include Florida, Iowa, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. If you live in one of those states, we cannot currently schedule a new patient consultation with you, but some of our colleagues who live in other states may be able to help.
