Each of our doctors are licensed by the state of California to practice naturopathic medicine. They’re trained similarly to an MD, with an emphasis on finding and treating the root cause of a health issue. We’ll diagnose your condition, then determine whether we can treat only naturally or if it’s necessary to engage with traditional medicine.
Derek Lawrence, N.D.
“To achieve true healing, balance must be restored on all levels of existence—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I encourage each patient to be a steward of his or her own health while providing support and education to guide them on their journey.”
“I believe that symptoms and disease are signs of a deeper energetic imbalance. I teach my patients how to create healthy lifestyle routines while identifying and treating the underlying cause of disease. I value listening to the individual needs of each patient and strive to create a partnership between doctor and patient. I am dedicated to helping others with their health journey.”
“I specialize in finding the root of a person’s imbalance as opposed to focusing on treating solely their symptoms. Instead, I work with them to restore equilibrium to their overall being. I use acupuncture, nutritional counseling and mind-body techniques as a few of my tools. I believe in the importance of the mind-body-spirit triad. I approach patient care with compassion, concentration, and a good bit of laughter.”
