Pure Wellness Center

Tom Ballard, RN, ND
Scientific Natural Medicine Since 1982

Naturopathic Doctors are some of the most highly educated and rigorously trained healers in the world. We practice Green Medicine - sustainable, organic, whole-system, in harmony with the systems of the earth and body. My holistic approach to diagnosing and treating disease brings together the best of the following therapeutics:

  • Clinical Nutrition
  • Scientific Detoxification
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Lifestyle Counseling
  • Weight-loss programs
  • Genetic Health Evaluation

Having graduated from a four-year naturopathic medical school, I am uniquely skilled at providing you with a natural and integrated approach to your health problems. Naturopathic medicine treats your entire person – not just your symptoms – and emphasizes prevention and lifestyle education as the cornerstones of true wellness.

What I treat
I specialize in treating difficult chronic health problems: fatigue, weight, diabetes, depression, allergies, arthritis, skin conditions, insomnia, hormone imbalances, PMS, menopause, and fibromyalgia, to name only a few. I've found that few people need to take prescription drugs,. Drugs are are designed for suppressing symptoms.  Most health conditions respond well to supplying missing nutrients and removing toxins.

What is an ND’s training?
Naturopathic education consists of a four year doctoral program that includes conventional medical education and diagnostics as well as thorough training in natural therapeutics. Generally, ND’s use the same means to diagnose patients as conventional MD’s, then use natural therapies to heal.

  • The clinical education involves two years of direct patient care supervised by licensed ND’s.
  • State licensure is granted after passing national board exams.
  • Licensure requires yearly continuing education.
  • State licensure ensures regulation of education and practice and the safety of patient care. Most of the licensed US states have professional associations for ND’s, and there is a national organization, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

By focusing on your body’s innate healing power and intelligence, I empower you to generate wellness in your body not just today, but for the rest of your life.
