About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is based on six fundamental principles: First, Do No Harm; The Healing Power of Nature; Identifying and Treating the Cause; Physician as Teacher; Treating the Whole Person; and Prevention.
Dr. Stricker utilizes state-of-the-art comprehensive testing including, but not limited to: food allergens, mold toxicity, stool analysis, hormones (thyroid, adrenal, sex), organic acids, heavy metals, micronutrients, genetic markers, chronic viral infections and neurotransmitters to uncover the root cause of dis-ease and develop a clear understanding of each patient’s unique makeup. She then guides patients through integrative, holistic treatment plans, prescribing safe and effective natural and modern medicine.

Working with Dr. Rachel Stricker, ND, RYT as my Naturopathic Doctor has been transformative. Easily one of the best decisions I’ve made, in regards to healing & wellness.

I had such a grounded and healing Thai massage with Rachel. Her space is energetically calm and soothing and I felt pent up tension in my tissues dissolve as she applied the perfect pressure suited for my level of tension. She used some therapeutic oils as well which helped me feel centered and made the release/surrender to the healing work that much easier. I highly recommend a healing session with her.
