About Dr. Lisa:
Dr. Lisa, a naturopathic doctor in Chicago who owns Naturally Healthy with Dr. Lisa, specializes in allergies, gastrointestinal issues, weight loss, and overall health and wellness. Dr. Lisa's primary goal for her clients’ first visit is to have them understand that optimal health is not a quick fix. “Health is a unique step-by-step process of making the right choices,” says Dr. Lisa. "While conventional medications may offer quick relief, these methods only remedy the symptoms, ignoring the underlying causes. To create lasting benefits, we must work with our bodies to remove agitators and toxins and to determine what will aid the body in its natural healing processes." Dr. Lisa works individually with each person, carefully studying their unique background, lifestyle, and environment. Knowing how frustrating it can be to work on health problems or disease, Dr. Lisa acts as a support network and sounding board during her patients' wellness journeys.
About Naturopathic Medicine:
Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) like Dr. Lisa teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease. NDs recognize the whole person as a complex, interrelated system, not simply a clogged artery or a tumor. They develop comprehensive treatment plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only treat disease, but also restore health.

Dr. Lisa's Services:
Naturally Healthy with Dr. Lisa offers a variety of patient care options. For first-timers, Dr. Lisa recommends beginning with an Initial Wellness Visit and continuing with intermittent Return Wellness Visits. Typically in-person visits are recommended for the first visit, but phone consultations may be offered for long-distance clients. If a client simply wants to test the waters, or knows exactly what he or she wants, another visit option may be appropriate. These include Acute or Condition-Specific Visits, Detoxification Consults, Weight Loss Consults, Elimination Diet Consults, Nutrition & Supplement Consultation, Lab Review, Hydrotherapy, NST or Reiki Treatment, and Naso-sympatico Treatment. House calls are offered for the convenience of already established clients. Fees vary depending on distance and time of day or night. Grocery Store Walk Throughs are also a helpful add-on to an initial visit to expand the patient's knowledge of food choices and ingredients. Dr. Lisa can highlight appropriate choices and some of her personal favorite foods, including gluten-free options. If you are a local business or school, Dr. Lisa also offers free lectures on various health and wellness topics.
About Dr. Lisa's Smoking Cessation Program:
Dr. Lisa also offers smoking cessation through a Natural Smoking Cessation Program that is six weeks long to help you quit smoking. It is intended to give someone tools to counter the daily habits associated with smoking, supplements to curb their cravings and stave off anxiety, and personal weekly support.
