Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine is a form of healthcare that emphasizes prevention and the use of natural therapeutics. Naturopathic medicine focuses on a whole-systems approach to healthcare where an individual’s health is viewed as a sum of their total parts versus a symptom of their disease. Physical, mental, and emotional aspects of health are addressed to help the body recover and restore proper function.

Dr. Inouye’s integrative approach to treatment combines the best techniques of modern, traditional, and empirical scientific methods.
