The main force behind Nourish is a deep desire to help our patients discover WHY they are sick.
We are health detectives that specialize in determining the root cause of your illness, even when other providers have told you nothing is wrong. Whether you’re seeking help with a specific condition or unexplained symptoms, each client is individually evaluated by a professional Naturopathic Doctor and provided with a well-researched and comprehensive plan that they can follow for the rest of their lives. We specialize in autoimmune conditions, but work with any patient. Whether you’re looking to optimize your health or get to the bottom of your chronic illness, our practitioners are ready to help Nourish you back to health.
I am the only doctor in Illinois with my combination of training; A Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, a Masters in Clinical Nutrition, and Certified in Functional Medicine. Many other doctors, natural or conventional, spend their time focused on trying to reduce your symptoms whether it is with drugs or supplements. I spend my time getting to the bottom of why your symptoms are there in the first place, so that we can remove these obstacles to recovery.
NDs are not able to bill insurance in Illinois like they are in other states. We will say however, we couldn't do what we do and offer the level of service that we think our patients deserve if we accepted insurance. The insurance system is what has lead to you receiving 7 minute visits at the typical doctor office you've likely experienced. The insurance company reimburses the doctor about $30 for a visit, which is why a typical MD will see 10 patients an hour. If we took insurance, we wouldn't be able to spend 1-2 hours at a time with you. Also to your benefit, because we do not have to split profits with the insurance agency, means we are able to keep costs lower, more affordable for you, and our prices will always be reflective of the service you are receiving. If price is a large concern, we do have options that can reduce your care down SIGNIFICANTLY. We want everyone to be able to afford natural medicine. Contact us for details if this help is needed.
