Practicing Natural Medicine Since 1991
Message from Dr. Clement,
Welcome. After practicing naturopathic and energetic medicine for over 25 years, my love and passion lies in my working with very specific modalities, in which I see such miraculous results. I am honored to share these specialties with you.
I sincerely hope you spend time visiting my website. All of these therapies are created with the intention to serve you at my highest level as a physician and as a healer.
HCG Diet Protocol
HCG Diet Protocol
As a practitioner, I love the HCG diet and the amazing results that I see with my patients.
I admit that when I first heard about the HCG diet, I was aghast with the thought of a 500 calorie restricted diet and daily injections. However, after my due diligence into the research behind the protocol’s physiology, I changed my skeptical opinions and understood why the HCG diet works so well.
I prescribe a 23-day or a 40-day protocol based on the work of Dr. Simeon.
These are some of the reasons why I love to prescribe the HCG diet:
1) An increase in the body’s metabolism with the best possible chance to keep the weight off with ongoing proper nutrition and exercise.
2) A continual loss of weight by day four after the fat loading days are over.
3) A decrease in appetite and cravings.
4) Elimination of allergic type foods.
5) A sparing of muscle mass during the fat burning process.
6) An increase in overall energy.
7) Improved sleep.
8) Overall fat burning especially off the mid section of the abdomen.
If you are interested in a short consultation to evaluate if this diet is right for you or if you have already done the HCG diet and wish to repeat it again, contact me to discuss your options. Learn more
One of my favorite and most commonly run laboratory tests in my practice is the Adrenal Stress Index. The Adrenal Stress Index gives us fabulous clinical insight into how chronic stress has affected our health. The ASI tests for circadian rhythm alterations laying out a blueprint for recovery from the effects from stress.
The ASI test is clinically relevant when a person seems always fatigued, relies on caffeine, sugar or stimulants for energy, has yo-yo dieted, has blood sugar issues, has an afternoon drop in energy, has chronic stress, has poor sleep or gets a “second wind” at night and cannot sleep.
The ASI is an “at home” saliva test where the samples are collected at four times during the day. No is no blood draw. Simply mail the box to the lab.
Some of the reasons I love to run the ASI test:
1) Everyone needs these results due to our stressed out lifestyle.
2) ASI is an home saliva test verses a blood draw. Mail in box provided.
3) Cortisol levels show 4 specific time periods to help chart the body’s energy levels throughout the day.
4) DHEA levels indicate the body’s adaptation to acute of chronic stress.
5) The SIgA marker shows how chronic stress has effected the immune system.
6) Progesterone levels demonstrate the precursor to stress hormones.
7) An immune system marker tests for the body’s reaction to gliadin, and screens for wheat allergy as well as for Celiac Disease.
8) The lab gives a supplement recommendation for adrenal support.
If you have ever experienced a situation of acute or chronic stress and would like to test your adrenal levels, contact me for a brief consultation to see if this test is right for you. Learn more
When I started my practice in 1991, I saw miracles unfold when I began prescribing homeopathic remedies. In fact, my practice grew so quickly, I had to increase the number of days and lengthen the hours that I was working.
These are only a few examples of the many miracles I have witnessed over my 25+ years of practice. No names or genders are mentioned to protect my patients’ identities.
1) Alopecia areata (auto-immune hair loss) completely reversed with a remedy for emotional stability and courage.
2) Lifelong anxiety attacks totally eased after a remedy for the shock and loss in dealing with the death of a parent as a toddler.
3) Months of recurrent nightmares disappeared completely after a remedy for intense fright from seeing a pet die.
4) Depression and hopelessness lifted after a remedy given for the genetic cellular memory regarding starvation from a famine in Europe.
5) Fear and emotional immobility relieved after a remedy given for the genetic cellular memory from war and genocide from World War II.
6) Hormonal balance when hormones could not be prescribed because of cancer.
As I feel that every person would benefit from understanding homeopathy, I have created an online, self-study course in homeopathy, The Spirit of Homeopathy. In this course, you will learn the basics of homeopathy, studying at your own pace, in your own surroundings. You will learn about the polycrests, or the most common homeopathic remedies as well as specific remedies for adults, children and many health conditions. I encourage you to learn more about this wonderful healing modality.
If you are interested in scheduling a homeopathic session, please contact me. You will love the process and the results. And do check out my online course.
In 1995, a patient of mine told me of a way to get rid of food and environmental allergy symptoms with acupressure treatments. I almost laughed at the idea; however, when I found a practitioner to do a milk treatment and an egg allergy treatment on me, I was amazed at my “no symptom” response when consuming both.
Ingesting eggs used to give me total brain fog, and drinking milk would make my heart race, give me an upset stomach and create even more brain fog. As I had egg and milk sensitivities all my life, I could not believe how profound these allergy desensitization sessions were. So I became trained.
After practicing these sessions for over twenty years, I have greatly expanded and improved the basic protocol (which used to take dozens and dozens of treatments not to mention months and months of appointments.) Creating my own system, I am able to reduce and/or eliminate allergy symptoms within three to four sessions. Even lifelong sensitivities improve.
If a person has life threatening allergies, such as shellfish or peanuts, I do not attempt to clear these or even have the person come in contact with the substances for a partial clearing; however, for the common food and environmental allergies, my system works beautifully.
Other than common allergies, do you realize you may be allergic to your own hormones? To your sweat and saliva? To specific people? Yes, to almost anything!
For over two decades I have used a simple, yet profound technique in my office for clearing stuck emotions: Neuro-Emotional Technique or NET. Sometimes I do this technique by itself, and other times I team this with homeopathy for an even greater effect.
Unlike a counseling session where a person may have to continually discuss emotions associated with an event or trauma in the past in order to desensitize to it, an NET session works by activating an acupressure point associated with an emotion or experience that has caused emotional or physical pain.
We hold our emotional and our physical experiences in the meridians and in our cellular memory. Assessing this information is done through applied kinesiology, or AK. Balancing the associated meridian shifts the effect of the trauma and allows the issue to resolve on a very deep level.
For instance, if I have knee pain and the pain is associated on a conscious or unconscious level with shame, holding the shame point on the palm of my hand while bringing up the incident in my mind, helps clear the emotional energy in the knee which results in pain.
So many of our physical issues have an emotional component and so many of our emotional issues just keep holding on, interrupting the joy we should be living in the present moment. NET is an effective way to clear both.
I tell my patients, doing NET for emotional issues is like leaving soda pop out overnight…it is still soda pop, but the fizz is gone and it tastes bad. We still have the emotional past, but the energy on the situation is gone and it does not resonate with us anymore.
Now is the time to release the cellular memory of past events and to live in the joy of being fully present!
Functional Medicine looks at the underlying issues of health and wellness rather than strictly looking at diseased states of organs. A Functional Medicine Doctor wants to know…How are my organs functioning? How is my liver, my heart, my kidneys, my adrenals, etc.
A blood chemistry panel looks at certain markers for liver disease. Blood chemistry screening is extremely important for ruling out disease; however, what if the lab results are normal showing no disease, and the patient still experiences symptoms?
Example: A Functional Medicine Doctor wants to know if your liver is functioning at its highest capacity and performing it’s many jobs. These questions deal with issues of liver function, not necessarily liver disease.
• Is your liver able to clear toxins from the blood to protect my tissues, my kidneys, my brain, etc.?
• Is your liver producing natural antihistamines when a person experiences an allergic reaction?
• Is your liver sluggish when processing and conjugating hormones?
One can easily support the function of the body in many well-known ways. By increasing our low-intensity exercise, by adding specific types of organic foods, and by targeting organ-specific supplements.
My gift regarding Functional Medicine is by creating combination, low-dose homeopathic remedies for the energetic improvement of specific organs or the entire body. And then the true miracles begin…
How are my is in model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
