Why do you have heartburn? Why do you have acne? Why aren’t you having a period? What went wrong and how can it be fixed? By addressing the why, she addresses the root cause.
Dr. McCarter uses safe, effective and natural therapies to help per patients restore optimal health and vitality. These therapies include nutritional assessment and lifestyle counseling, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and homeopathy. These therapies stimulate the natural healing processes and nurture the body back to health rather than suppressing symptoms with medications.
