I have been featured as a guest on Dr. Jeanette Gallagher, ND's radio show discussing herbal medicine, it's place in naturopathic medicine, and how they can help you!

Naturopathic Medicine is here to stay and it is based on the power of nature to heal the body with the assistance of botanicals, nutrition, homeopathy and many other modalities. The body can heal if we learn what is causing the health issue and modulate the influence it has on our body function. Botanical medicine can be in the form of teas, tinctures or capsules that support normal body function. Flowers, trees, roots and leaves are parts of plants that are used in botanicals. While it may seem simple to just go pick a plant and use it as medicine, Botanical medicine is a very precise practice that utilizes the chemical compounds in each plant and compounds an elixir to remedy a specific symptom pattern.
My guest today is Dr. Naz Vassighi, a Naturopathic Physician from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Arizona. She is well versed in using Botanicals and Homeopathy in private practice with all her patients no matter the age or the health condition presenting. Dr. Naz has an extensive background prior to Naturopathic Medical School in Biology which reinforces her experience with plants.
