Though their disciplines and specialties may vary, the team at Aletris Center agrees that the true definition of health is more far-reaching, and more complex, than a mere lack of disease. The goal at their center is to combine natural and alternative medicine with the best of conventional healthcare available. They apply this preventative, comprehensive, naturopathic philosophy to an extensive roster of ailments from acid reflux to weight gain.
As the staff members' backgrounds vary, so do the treatments they offer, which include acupuncture, holistic pelvic care, chiropractic care, and colon hydrotherapy. Other specialties include naturopathic medicine, natural hormone therapy, women's health, and pediatrics.
