Dr. Alaina Gair
As a naturopathic doctor, I believe in the ability of healthcare providers to inspire people to reach their optimal state of wellness. I believe it is important to address the underlying causes of symptoms, and I use the tools of naturopathic medicine to help patients remove obstacles to take control of their health.
I practice evidence-based, individualized care, and see my role as a guide and facilitator to educate and empower my clients to make the changes their lives require. For each patient, I cultivate individualized treatment plans using lifestyle and dietary improvements, supplement prescription, and acupuncture. I complete a focused physical exam and order blood tests as needed to assess physiological imbalances and identify food sensitivities.
