Welcome to the practice of Dr. Lucy Rojo, an integrative natural medicine practitioner in Stanton & Palm Desert, California. Here, the best of natural and conventional practices come together to offer you an optimal wellness plan and health options.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care - an art, science, philosophy and medical practice of diagnosis, and treatment. More importantly, we strive to prevent illness and optimize wellness. Surgery and pharmaceuticals are generally not the first choice of therapies unless the situation dictates an appropriate referral. Together patient and doctor generate a plan with measurable objectives and realistic outcomes. The devised plan often includes: testing to gather further information, herbal support, nutritional & dietary guidance, intravenous therapies, homeopathy, and bio-identical hormone balancing. These approaches are used to attain optimal wellness or disease management objective(s).
Dr. Lucy Rojo will approach your health condition uniquely and individually. Dr. Rojo believes that illness does not arise randomly in the body. Every chronic illness or disease stems from more fundamental underlying causes. When these underlying sources are addressed and treated, the body is better equipped to help heal itself from within. However, when more in depth action is required, naturopathic methods can blend cohesively with conventional therapies to manage health.
Symptoms are the body's natural attempts to deal with underlying problems, and often serve to guide the practitioner and patient to the true cause of illness. The holistic, wellness approach empowers patients to have a better understanding of themselves and allows them to be active participants in their journey towards health and wellness.
