Naturopathic medicine blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Holistic healthcare is based on a doctor-patient partnership in which natural therapies are used to stimulate the body’s innate healing abilities.
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy
Adequate hormone levels are necessary for the normal rejuvenation and regeneration processes of the body. As we get older, our hormone levels decline, causing a reduction in energy and stamina. Bio-identical hormone therapy replaces the necessary hormones that your body is now producing at a slower rate, returning your body to optimal health.

She has trained with some of the best leaders in Bio Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) and takes a special interest in balancing and healing the often overlooked thyroid and adrenal glands.
Bodywork is a large part of the professional services at Health Momentum. Bodywork takes place during the visit and is a means of jump-starting the healing processes of the body. Bodywork of different forms is conducted and may include deep muscle relaxation, active release therapy or fascial flushing.
Good nutrition is the foundation for healing health ailments and for promoting lasting wellness. What we put into our bodies on a regular basis provides the building blocks for our cells and tissues. The naturopathic doctors at Health Momentum focus on dietary advice that is realistic and enjoyable for any busy schedule.
Detoxification can be incredibly beneficial for the revitalization and rejuvenation of the body. Strict fasting programs or quick fix solutions do not address the root cause of an issue and can create more problems in the long term term. Gentle detoxification through diet and supplements are a more effective way of creating profound changes that will last.
Herbs and Nutritional Supplements
Many over-the-counter, natural products, purchased at health food stores or pharmacies have not undergone standardized testing, therefore, the efficacy of these vitamins and herbs can vary greatly depending on the quality of the manufacturing. All the professional supplements prescribed by Naturopathic Doctors have undergone rigorous quality control. These supplements are therefore more effective at bringing about symptoms relief.
When you exercise, your body releases ‘feel-good’ chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain, boosting energy and improving overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture, Electro Acupuncture, Cupping
When acupuncture points are stimulated, a cascade of calming hormones within the body is released. In a healthy person, energy moves freely throughout energy channels called “meridians” in the body. In the ill person, these channels become blocked. Acupuncture works to restore health by improving the natural flow and balance among these pathways.
Vitamin B12 injection
B12 injections increase cellular energy in a safe and effective manner in people suffering from fatigue or other generalized symptoms. Oral supplements are another option however, do not normally work as quickly or as effectively as injections. Dr. Cecilia de Martino, ND is the injection specialist at Health Momentum.
Stress is often the root cause of many health concerns. Stress management techniques improve many aspects of health by encouraging muscle relaxation, good sleeping patterns, detoxification, and neurological balance.
Allergy & Food Sensitivity Testing
Rocky Mountain Analytical is the accredited medical laboratory that is used at Health Momentum to determine which foods you are sensitive or allergic to. Rocky Mountain Laboratories test hormone levels, food reactions and environmental toxins so that patients can safely avoid possible unknown allergens that could be weakening them on a daily basis.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with non addictive, natural substances, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing.
