A naturopathic physician combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention as well as comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using methodologies that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment with an emphasis on the use of individualized diet, exercise, botanical and homeopathic medicines.
Dr. Hager has a deep commitment to accessible wellness care with an emphasis on client participation in the discovery, recovery and maintenance of optimal health. The fostering of the physician/client relationship lies in the concept of creating a well informed equal participant in making health care decisions. She offers comprehensive medical examinations and testing and collaborates with colleagues in Oriental Medicine, Structural Integrity, Counseling, Cardiology and other specialties.
In the interest of better health screening, Dr. Hager, CCT, offers digital infrared imaging. Digital infrared imaging is a non-invasive procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis as well as monitoring therapy progress. Images or “Thermograms” can be taken of the whole body or just areas being investigated.
The role of thermography in breast cancer and other breast disorders is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology and the establishment of risk factors for the development or existence of cancer. When used with other procedures the best possible evaluation of breast health is made.
