Naturopathic medicine, the combination of ancient wisdom and modern science.
The Source Naturopathic Medical Clinic
Dr. David Arneson established The Source in August 2002 with the vision of providing superb, compassionate holistic health care for the fairest price possible. We have been growing and serving the community at the same location ever since!
Our doctors are all licensed primary care providers who hold Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine degrees (NMD) from federally recognized medical schools. Naturopaths are trained to seek out the least invasive intervention required to effect a cure. We are interested in you as an individual and trying to understand and appreciate your unique medical history and biochemistry to arrive at a highly tailored treatment strategy that addresses the root cause of your condition, not simply the symptoms. Often this is possible with diet counseling and lifestyle modification. Sometimes this may require the use of homeopathy, IV therapies, botanical remedies, prescription medicine, physical therapeutics, and/or minor surgery.
We also offer cutting-edge modalities using the latest research and technology such as Ozone therapies, FSM, PEMF, BEMER, Rubimed, Glycocalyx Check, Shockwave therapies, and more.
We will refer to specialists as needed, either within the profession or to allopathic (MD) or osteopathic (DO) colleagues.
Our team includes a licensed massage therapist who is available on site by appointment, and a great office manager who keeps the clinic working smoothly and makes everyone feel welcomed and valued, whether on the phone or in person.
In our continuing effort to keep our costs down, we do not accept insurance at this time. Payment by credit card, cash, or check is expected at the time of service.
We welcome you to drop by any time and get acquainted!
