My approach to medicine and healing is based on the naturopathic principle, Vis Medicatrix Naturae, the “Healing Power of Nature”. The human body is well adapted to heal itself given the proper conditions. In our culture we have lost track of some of the “foundations of health” that allow and support the body’s own healing mechanisms. By reestablishing these foundations, the patient is in a much better position to heal and to lead a healthy life. Jeff Metzger is a provider of primary, naturopathic health care with an emphasis on treating chronic illness. Each appointment typically involves assessment of presenting problems, personal and family history and a physical examination. You and Dr. Metzger will develop a plan together for immediate and long-term treatment.
