Are you seeking for a different approach to restoring and maintaining your health and overall well-being? One that allows you to reconnect to your body and strengthen your foundations of health to reach your life potential and go beyond? Contact Dr. Reap and we can discuss holistic medicine.
Dr. Reap is a licensed Naturopathic physician who practices primary naturopathic care for all ages. In the state of Montana, she is able to diagnose, prescribe medications, utilize laboratory testing, and treat illnesses. She also works in collaboration with other healthcare practitioners when appropriate. However, it is her intention to move away from the concept of “treating the illness” and move towards living a healthy balanced lifestyle. Overall wellness is created when there is balance in the foundations of health and ways to support the body’s inherent healing ability. Good nutrition, movement/exercise, sleep quality, mental health, and relationships with others and ourselves have an impact on our health. What we give our bodies determines how our health will be. An individualized wellness plan is tailored to each individual, and adjusted if necessary. To see the best results with Naturopathic care, it is important that the individual recognizes and embraces self-responsibility of their wellness, and be willing to make changes to their lifestyle.
Dr. Reap also has a strong interest in the health of our young community and teaching them how to lead a balanced lifestyle early on in their lifespan. Learning and incorporating healthy habits helps reduce the risk of chronic dis-eases. Currently, the burden of chronic dis-eases is rapidly increasing worldwide, accounting for almost three-quarters of all deaths. Contact Dr. Reap to learn how to keep your children and family healthy and prevent/reduce dis-ease.
Healing with herbs has been used since prehistoric times to relieve illness but as society discovered and became more civilized, the use of medicinal herbs was forgotten. However the decreasing efficacy of synthetic drugs and their contraindications has made us re-think the use of herbs in our modern lives. Dr. Reap encourages all individuals to explore the healing power of herbs and incorporate them in their daily lives. Discover more at Learning Herbs or Herbs with Rosalee.
Homeopathy is a medical system developed in the late 18th century by a respected doctor in Germany. It is based on two theories: “like cures likes” and “law of minimum dose”. It is a safe and gentle therapy that can used in acute or chronic conditions. The chosen homeopathic remedy matches the symptoms of the individual, and does not fall into the “one size fits all” that is often used in conventional medicine. To learn more, see the National Center of Homeopathy.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on therapy that can benefit individuals from infancy to end of life. It works to reduce “restrictions” in the body to help restore motion. It is an effective adjunct therapy for a variety of health conditions, both physical and psychological such as for musculoskeletal issues, chronic pain, headaches, and anxiety.
