Dr Heidi Fritz ND

Naturopathic medicine is a system of healthcare that applies natural therapies on the basis of current scientific evidence and traditional knowledge. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) undergo four years of rigorous medical training in addition to four years of undergraduate studies. NDs are trained in differential diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis, physical exam, and pharmacology, in addition to extensive training in natural medical therapies. NDs are trained to work safely in conjunction with conventional medical therapies to optimize your health outcomes.

Dr. Heidi Fritz ND emphasizes an evidence-informed practice of naturopathic medicine, basing treatment on what is supported by the scientific literature and staying up-to-date with latest findings. Dr. Heidi seeks to identify and treat the root cause of disease in order to facilitate healing, and is trained in using nutrition and nutritional supplementation as the foundation of health, as well as herbal medicine, acupuncture therapy, and comprehensive laboratory testing. In particular, Dr. Heidi has a special focus on using naturopathic intravenous (IV) therapy in cancer care, as well as other conditions. Dr. Heidi has completed advanced training in naturopathic cancer care, and can help with supporting patients though standard cancer treatments (surgery, chemo, radiation) to improve treatment effectiveness, reduce side effects, and support immune function. Dr. Heidi also helps patients who have completed their standard treatments by helping them recover from the effects of treatments and to help rebuild their health to prevent recurrence

Dr. Heidi can also treat a number of other health conditions, such as: mental health, stress management, chronic fatigue or “burnout,” neurodegenerative disease, poor immune function, and recurrent infections. Dr. Heidi also practices bioidentical hormone therapy to treat women’s health conditions, as well as thyroid hormone replacement therapy for patients with hypothyroidism or low thyroid function.
