Naturopathic Medicine

At CBNFM, we provide healthcare for

the whole family.

 Family

Dr. Trautman can function as your primary care physician by providing regular preventative checkups  and wellness education, as well as treating your family’s urgent or chronic health concerns.

Alternatively, she can function as a specialist to consult on a specific issue; she can provide naturopathic options for treatment or complimentary/supportive care for your current treatments.

Dr. Trautman uses functional testing as well as laboratory testing and imaging to develop a broader picture of the cause of symptoms. Depending on the needs of the patient we may do laboratory testing using blood/serum, skin, saliva, hair, urine, stool and/or other bodily fluids. The results of these tests and imaging, if indicated, often indicate the most appropriate method of treatment.

Treatment always starts with clinical nutrition and lifestyle enhancements and then moves up to botanical (herbal) medicine, homeopathic medicine, and physical medicine. If needed Dr. Trautman will prescribe pharmaceutical medication or refer you to a specialist.
