I am often asked by my patients if they should treat their particular neurological condition with medication or alternative methods such as naturopathy or acupuncture. Well, the answer is almost always both! When I first opened my practice in 2007 and then branded it with the name "neurOasis" I wanted to convey the idea that clinical outcomes in patients will almost always be better if they are treated by the best of western medicine WITH the best of alternative therapies.
So, it makes alot of sense to take daily medication to prevent migraines and at the same time see an acupuncturist and a naturopathic doctor to get proper nutrition and take preventative supplements. It is no accident, of course, that I have an acupuncturist (Jessica Kwong) in the office three days weekly and our naturopath (Dr. Laurie Brodsky) two days weekly. Other treatments such as meditation, chiropractic care and Reiki also have scientific studies that indicate their usefulness.
