COUNSELING AND LIFESTYLE MANAGEMENT
Naturopathic physicians are often the first professionals that patients have had that hear their "whole" story from birth to the present. They are also the best professionals to know what other health professionals would be the best to have on their health care team. Dr. Pincott refers to chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, physiotherapists and clinical counselors if indicated. Using the functional medicine matrix all aspects of the persons health: mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical are addressed. The relationship is "adult to adult" rather than "parent to child" which is the conventional medical model approach.

DETOXIFICATION PROTOCOLS
Toxins harbor in the body in fat and connective tissue cells and require therapies to help mobilize as well as eliminate them. Dr. Pincott recommends a general detoxification program 1-3 times per year and fasting in rare cases is recommended. Other detoxification programs she uses are: Anti-inflammatory Detoxification, Chemical Detoxification and Heavy Metal Detoxification.

DETOX FOOT BATH
This Ion Wave Detox Foot bath is a safe and painless tool used to detoxify and balance the energy meridians of the body and is a wonderful adjunct to any detoxification program.

DIET THERAPY
This is the therapeutic use of food and diet plans to achieve optimal health. Dr. Pincott has been a long time proponent of "Food Combining" as per Dr. Matsen's Eating Alive and Eat Right for Your Blood Type by Dr. D'Adamo as well as utilizing the "Floating Food Pyramid". "Use your foods as medicines" is what Hippocrates, the father of medicine, taught from the beginning.

HEAVY METAL DETOXIFICATION
There are many ways of detoxifying the body of heavy metals other than to use Intravenous Chelation therapies. Metal Free and Magnetic Clay Baths along with herbal drainage remedies are the methods that Dr. Pincott utilizes.

HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE
Homeopathic medicine has been practiced for over 200 years worldwide. It is the use of remedies made from plants, animals and minerals that are diluted in an energetic fashion. When administered they stimulate the body's innate healing powers. These remedies are safe during pregnancy, for children of all ages, and can be taken pre and post operatively when a person is fasting. The practice of homeopathy in Veterinary medicine is gaining rapidly in popularity (so we know it isn't placebo!). Dr. Pincott uses single remedies as well as combination remedies (UNDA's) from Belgium. These act as "drainage remedies" which augment the other therapies beautifully! Most patients experience a deeper sense of well being when these are part of their treatment program.

INHALATION THERAPIES
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant and when it is inhaled greatly enhances the body's ability to heal itself of sinus infections as well as chest infections. It is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease and/or Emphysema.

INJECTION THERAPIES
Intramuscular injections of vitamins as well as homeopathic remedies are utilized by Dr. Pincott. B vitamins injected are particularly useful for the treatment of chronic fatigue as well as bursitis. The homeopathic remedies when injected are utilized to help with virulent flus and infectious diseases.

MEN'S HEALTH
Dr. Pincott insists that all men know what their PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) readings are as they should be compared with their previous readings and not a "normal" range. Selenium reduces prostate cancer by 65% and all men need to know this. Other tests are routinely done to evaluate risks factors of aging and Dr. Pincott has experience treating chronic prostatitis.

NATURAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPIES
Many menstrual, menopausal, aging and andropause (male menopause) issues are addressed using bio-identical natural hormone replacement therapies.

These are the basic guidelines that Dr. Pincott teaches all of her patients. If most followed these guidelines many diseases could be prevented including heart disease, cancer and arthritis!

PSORIASIS TREATMENT
For particularly stubborn cases of psoriasis a German therapy using Fumeric Acid is very effective. Creams and salves are utilized for a period of 3-6 months in addition to Naturopathic BTG's. The fumeric acid utilized is formulated in Germany.

RUBIMEDS (PSYCHOSOMATIC ENERGETICS OR PSE)
These combination homeopathic remedies from Switzerland made their debut to North American health professionals in 2005. These remedies assist in unlocking emotional and autonomic nervous system blockages that are impeding health. Once these are unlocked many other remedies may not be needed in the long term. This system of treatment takes an average of 1.5 years and the Rubimeds are prescribed using the REBA device which evaluates the blockages in the physical, emotional, mental and unconscious levels.

SANUM THERAPY
With the use of these German pleo-morphic remedies, saboteurs of chronic health conditions are treated thus paving the road to optimal health. They turn pathogenic forms of bacteria, fungi and parasites found in the body into less virulent forms. These remedies are important for preventing cancer and treating chronic infectious diseases.

WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
Weight loss is often a natural side effect of Naturopathic BTG's. Evaluating patients for endocrine imbalance, food allergies and digestive health are important components for weight loss.
