Bringing a patient back to good health requires more than analyzing one part of the body—it’s about assessing all parts of their physical, mental, and spiritual health. That’s what Valley Natural Health’s doctor of naturopathic medicine, Sonal Patel, believes and takes a holistic approach to caring for patients. Here, the doctor combines alternative therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and botanical medicine, with more conventional medicine services found at traditional doctors’ offices, such as pap smears, prostate exams, and vestigial-tail therapy.

This specialized discipline emphasizes treating the root cause of an ailment as opposed to its symptoms. It also incorporates a broader way to help prevent disease, which is why Dr. Kim also offers consultations on optimizing diets to establish and maintain good health.
