Philosophy

As a Naturopathic Doctor with over fifteen years of personal and professional experience in the health and fitness industry, Dr. Wulkan has helped individuals optimize their physical performance and body composition. The many tools available to us in Naturopathic Medicine, such as hormone testing, food sensitivity testing and cortisol testing allow her to determine an effective treatment plan to help you reach your goals. She has also gained expertise in treating injury rehabilitation for athletes, weekend warriors to any chronic cause of pain, using tools such as acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Wulkan’s philosophy as a Naturopathic doctor is to examine all possible contributing factors to a condition, rather than simply a “one size fits all” approach.
