Top Questions

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness that emphasizes
prevention and the self-healing process. Naturopathic doctors use non invasive modalities such as herbal remedies, diet and lifestyle modification.

What should I expect at my fist visit?

Our first visit will include a complete health history, individualized recommendations and a first acupuncture treatment. This will typically take about 2 hours.

Are Naturopathic doctors licensed?

The State of Indiana does not yet offer licensure to naturopathic doctors. Due to this, Dr. Walker holds an active license from the state of Hawaii. Dr. Walker works to provide wellness consultations in the state of Indiana. As such, the information on this website is not intended to treat or diagnose disease and it is recommended that you continue to consult with your licensed primary care provider for any medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture is not sensation-less.  The needles used are very thin but you will still feel them on initial insertion.  Once the needles are in, however, they should not cause you any discomfort.
