In 2018 I was fed up with years of being misdiagnosed by my medical doctors. I finally sought treatment from Spark Health and my life changed for the better. Dr.Zeglen, Naturopathic Doctor is just phenomenal. She explains the process in terms I could understand and follow along with.

Spark Health blends the 100-year-old practice of naturopathic medicine with evidence-based methods.

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct health care profession that combines natural therapies with modern science. Our NDs are trained and certified in Naturopathic medicine and they treat the root causes of health problems rather than their symptoms by using a combination of natural supplements, prescription medications, nutrition, lifestyle counseling, and Nutritional IV therapy.

Homeopath Doctor is trained to practice in one discipline–homeopathy, and only uses homeopathic principles to treat the patients.

Naturopathic physicians are not opposed to drugs or surgery.  When appropriate, NDs refer to specialists and other providers.
