Integrative And Naturopathic Medicine

Discover Health remains one of the most progressive practices in San Francisco by understanding the importance of combining different schools of thought for enhanced wellness. Our doctors collaborate to ensure each patient receives the care they need.

Dr. Thalia Farshchian, our naturopathic doctor, carefully reviews symptoms and works to identify the underlying cause of illness. By utilizing an array of specialty testing and diagnostics, we offer our patients a healthcare experience focused on disease prevention and the maintenance of wellness.

about naturopathic medicine

Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care providers using both alternative and conventional treatments to treat acute and chronic conditions. A naturopathic doctor’s primary goal is to understand the underlying cause of their patients’ symptoms rather than simply treating the symptom.

Dr. Farshchian will help you understand the status of your health and educate you about ways to optimize it. With an extensive knowledge of various therapies, a naturopathic doctor is able to develop a program that safely addresses your health concerns and is personalized to you.
