Feeling torn between a naturopathic and conventional medicines?

If you’ve seen a doctor who will only prescribe medications–or a natural healer who lacks deep medical knowledge—you may feel torn between conflicting advice.

Most people don’t need just one model of medicine. They need a balance of both and that which is best for them at that moment, whether it be with a traditional or naturopathic doctor.

I’m here to tell you that you no longer have to choose.

Finally a Dr who listens! All I can say is FINALLY!!....Dr Sandford is fantastic, it’s so nice to have a Dr actually spend time with you and he listens...sometimes I feel like I can just go in there and spew all the crap going on in my life and it feels good to get a response that "we will get you better". So I would say anyone who’s dealing with Hashimotos or other autoimmune problems to please go see Dr Sandford, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Adam is incredible. His experience allowed him to be able to see exactly what is in my gut that has been throwing a buuuunch of stuff off throughout my life. (Weight gain, hair growth, skin... etc). We have a plan set and I am confident that we’ll be able to get me healthy finally. He knows what he is talking about and won’t stop until he finds a solution. 10/10!

I have been searching for over 10 years, trying to find out what was the cause of a myriad of problems. Dr. Adam Sandford conducted many tests and zeroed in on conditions that have stymied my regular doctors. Including one that they should have caught early on. He and his staff have a marvelous, positive attitude. I am so lucky to have found him and this branch of medicine.

After becoming frustrated with the level of care from my current healthcare providers, I went looking for someone who would really listen to my concerns with an open mind and not just follow standard protocol dictated by insurance companies. I was so very blessed to find Dr. Sandford. He sent me home with a “wellness plan” and my energy level is already improving. It was refreshing to talk to a doctor genuinely interested in bringing me to optimal health and not just treating my symptoms!
