Dr. Geo Espinosa provides an overview of the Integrative Urology Center at the Smilow Center in this video interview.
Naturopathic treatments are non-toxic and will not interfere with your current treatment regimen or medication. In fact, some integrative, holistic treatments may enhance the results of your current treatment.
Since no single therapy is right for all patients, we will work with you to determine a course of treatment that fits your personal situation.
Our treatment methods include:
- Nutritional support and counseling, including dietary modification and optimal use of dietary supplements
- Botanical medicine (therapeutic use of Eastern and Western medicinal herbs)
- Mind-body counseling, including stress management and help with psychological factors associated with a diagnosis of urologic disease
- Acupuncture (insertion of fine needles at specific anatomical points to provide balance and relieve pain, as practiced for thousands of years by Chinese medical practitioners)
- Identification of environmental toxins that may contribute to urologic conditions
- Exercise instruction
