Clinical Interests

Clinical interests include utilizing homeopathy as the primary treatment for acute and chronic conditions. Dr. Vassighi is one of a few naturopaths in the nation who has completed a specialized residency focused on homeopathic training, making her part of an elite group of highly skilled homeopaths. She treats a wide variety of conditions but is particularly interested in utilizing homeopathy along with nutritional and lifestyle adjustments to treat digestive disorders, namely GERD, IBS, SIBO, Crohn's, and Ulcerative Colitis.  


Dr. Vassighi believes that the combination of natural medicine and a patient-centered approach are integral to true healing. In using natural therapies designed to stimulate the body's own innate ability to heal, we can gently guide the body to recovery from acute and chronic diseases as well as diminish the predisposition for future illness. Dr. Vassighi collaborates with patients to make shared healthcare decisions together, encouraging patients to take an active role in their healthcare. Working together as a team along with naturopathic treatments help patients to transform into the best version of themselves.
