Imagine a Doctor Who Spends the Time to Identify the True Cause of Your Symptoms,
A Doctor Who Focuses on Resolving Your Health Concerns, Not Covering Them With Medications…
Welcome to Onyx Integrative Medicine
Integrative medicine means the best of naturopathic/holisitc medicine, combined with the most advanced laboratory testing. The focus is on working with your body and addressing the causes of the symptoms you’re experiencing, not simply suppressing them.
It also means focusing on the whole person. This means all symptoms — physical, mental, and emotional — are taken into account.

What is a Naturopathic Doctor?
The answer to this question is simple. A Naturopathic Doctor is a doctor that listens to you, takes the time to find out what is causing your symptoms, and works with the body to resolve your symptoms – not suppress them.
You may be used to only getting 5-10 minutes with your doctor and feeling rushed.
You may be sick of getting prescription after prescription and never feeling like you are fixing the problem.
You might have told your doctor about your symptoms, and felt like he or she didn’t believe you.
It sounds like you are looking for a Naturopathic Doctor.
Naturopathic Doctors are different than conventional doctors. Some of their training is the same – anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology – but the way they look at the body and health is different.
Like MD’s, Naturopathic Doctors are:
- Licensed physicians in Arizona (medical health care providers in Kansas)
- Licensed to diagnose and treat
- Graduates of 4 year accredited medical school
- Licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medications (In Arizona)
- Regulated by a Board of Examiners
- Required to invest in yearly continuing education
- Licensed to perform physical exams
- Able to order laboratory testing and imaging
Naturopathic Doctors are different than conventional doctors in that they do not treat symptoms – they treat people. At the end of the day, every person with the same diagnosis did not get there the same way or for the same reasons – and Naturopathic Doctors get that. They do not treat with a one-size fits all approach; every treatment plan is individualized to each person.
Naturopathic Doctors see the body as connected. That is, every symptom you are experiencing ties into your other symptoms. You mental, emotional, and physical well-being are all intertwined.
