When your body speaks, listen! Health is more than simply being disease free. It is an ongoing process developing and maintaining the highest level of wellness within an individual. The whole body is involved in this process. In this way, the healthiest results are attainable by each individual. The key word here is "individual." No two people are exactly alike. Lifestyle, body chemistry, likes and dislikes, not to mention all the little unique things that make you who you are differs from person to person.

       "Root Cause" is more than just a buzz word here at the Center. Naturopathic training is focused in looking well beyond symptoms and current healthcare trends to find the starting point, or root cause, of dis-ease. The methodology has been used for thousands of years by trained professionals. 

        The mission of HWNC is to help people achieve the highest level of wellness possible, using only evidence-based holistic health approaches. Evidence-based means studies have been completed on the methods used and found them to improve health in individuals. This approach allows the best of all avenues to be used in promoting health. Some of these approaches you may be familiar with and others may be new. All have been shown to improve health, wellness, and quality of life in thousands of individuals. 

   Please take a moment to look through our pages and learn more about what we have to offer. You will find many informational things on this site. Health education, specialty cooking instructions, information on supplements and essential oils can be found on this site. In house we offer organic, non-gmo products to help you meet your health needs. The information found on these pages is not intended to diagnose or take the place of seeking medical attention. However, our qualified staff would be happy to discuss your personal health needs.
