Therapies used for treatment
You really are what you eat. Food is the vector for giving your body the means it needs to run and function optimally. Vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and fat are all used in your body everyday. When "tools" are missing, the body malfunctions and presents with symptoms. Many medical conditions can be treated with food and specific nutritional supplements. This improves health from the inside out without any negative side effects.
Herbs have powerful properties for healing. They gently restore health and come in the form of teas, tinctures, solid extracts or supplement capsules. They are often combined with specific nutrients to affect a certain body organ or system. Dr. Manning is extensively trained in botanical medicine and will find the herb or herbs that best fit your specific case without any medication interactions.
This system of medicine is over 200 years old and is prescribed based on the idea that "like cures like". Homeopathic remedies are extremely small doses of natural substances that when matched to the person and case history, stimulate the body's self healing response without side effects. Dr. Manning has additional training in the art and science of homeopathy from The New England School of Homeopathy under the instruction of Dr. Paul Herscu and Dr. Amy Rothenberg.
There is more to each patient than just their diagnosis. True healing occurs when the body, mind and spirit are in balance. Dr. Manning takes the time to understand each person's story and works to inspire positive lifestyle change. Communication is a pillar of the doctor/patient relationship. When paired with education about the body and stress management techniques, everyone leaves feeling heard and with the means to approach their life from a healthy angle.
