What is Naturopathic Medicine?
The six principles that guide the therapeutic methods and modalities of Naturopathic medicine include:
First Do No Harm: –Primum Non Nocere
Naturopathic medicine uses therapies that are safe and effective. A gentle approach is the best approach in most cases.
The Healing Power of Nature: –Vis Medicatrix Naturae
The human body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. The doctor’s role is to facilitate this process with the aid of natural, non-toxic therapies that work in harmony with the body.
Treat the Cause – Tolle: Causam
NDs seek out the underlying cause of a disease and do not simply suppress symptoms. Only rare circumstances call for a suppressive approach. Symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body’s natural attempt to heal, or the language of the body. Naturopathic doctors are trained to speak this language and restore the body back to a state of health and balance.
Treat the Whole Person: – Tolle Totum
Health, along with disease, is a balance of many different factors. Often people will need to be approached on multiple levels to achieve true and lasting health.
Doctor as Teacher: Docere
For thousands of years doctor’s have had the responsibility to educate their patients and encourage them to take an active role in their health. An empowered, knowledgeable patient who takes responsibility of their health can achieve many wonderful things. Unfortunately, in this day and age, many doctors skip over this crucial aspect.
Prevention is the Best Cure: – Praevenire
Naturopathic doctors are preventive medicine specialists. NDs are specially trained to assess patient risk factors and have the tools and knowledge needed to reduce risk and prevent illness. Education and a healthy lifestyle are two of the best ways to prevent disease and enjoy life.
Our Approach to Health
COUNSELING AND STRESS MANAGEMENT
What to Expect
- Investigation of nutritional, metabolic, mental/emotional, and/or physical imbalances
- Review of other pertinent symptoms or aspects of your intake form
- Initial treatment plan
- Time for questions
*Please arrive on time to allow us the full allotted time with you. We will do our very best to limit waiting, as we respect your time as well.
Most follow-up appointments will last approximately 20-30 minutes and will be tailored to you specifically. See “Our Approach to Health” for possible approaches that may be utilized, but please keep in mind that we address all of our patients as individuals and utilize the approach best suited to them and their concerns.
The frequency of your appointments will vary based on your concern and what the doctor believes is in your best interest. Generally, your appointments will be every 2-4 weeks initially and become farther apart, about every 1-3 months, as you achieve higher and higher degrees of health.
Timeline to Health
In general, Naturopathic protocols generate health on a deeper level and this takes time. Some estimations are 1 month for every year you have been sick, however this is not always true. Colds, flus, and other acute conditions can be resolved very quickly, often in just a few days. Chronic conditions, however, often take months to years. Although the timeline to renewed health may seem long, our goal is that you will begin to see positive and lasting changes throughout your consultations.

“Over the past year, Dr. Asbill has created a personalized treatment plan for me. Her ability to provide me the space to process trauma has had a lasting impact on my life. I feel in charge of my health with the guidance of an expert. Dr. Asbill trusts my opinion and has taught me how to trust my voice over the decisions of my physical and mental health. She helps me manage my physical health with a comfortable balance of blood work, taking supplements, and somatic bodywork. She is guiding me as I practice connecting my emotions to my body. Through somatic work, I am releasing past trauma and learning how to feel good in the present moment. Our conversations about changes I can make at home, such as meditation, foods, and self talk, have greatly improved my mental state. In addition to having more energy during the day, I now have the tools to manage my anxiety and redirect my thoughts to a more positive place. Every question I have is answered thoughtfully. I continue to recommend my closest friends to Dr. Asbill because of her high level of personalized care. I am eternally grateful for our time together.”
Thanks to the guidance of Dr. Asbill, my body is gently finding its way back to homeostasis. Gallbladder surgeries, high stress and a lifetime of eating the wrong foods for my constitution left my body and mind in a state of complete disruption. She has been thorough, determined, encouraging and balanced in her approach to my healing. Since working with Dr. Asbill, I have sent numerous family and friends her way, all of whom have been highly pleased with her care. She is truly the best.
We love Dr. Calley, She has been wonderful to work with and has really helped solve some of the most confusing aspects of my daughter’s health challenges. We would have never gone down the homeopathic route without her guidance.
My 12 year old son was experiencing anxiety due to social pressures, separation anxiety when I was separate from him, fears that something would happen to me. He was also not handling his anger and frustration appropriately. Through discussions with Dr. Asbill and via homeopathic remedies, my son began to handle his anxiety and behavior much better. His anxiety dissipated, he navigating changing his core social group very well. He has also found more appropriate ways to handle his anger and frustrations. I am thankful for the time Dr. Asbill spent with my son and for her wisdom and guidance. I am comforted to know that I can call on her in the future. I am also comforted that I have taught my son that there can be a natural approach to emotional and physical health.
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Asbill. She is pleasant, efficient and thorough. She communicates clearly and is very knowledgeable. I trust her guidance on getting me on the path to optimal health! Thank you!
Dr. Calley is amazing! From the minute I met her, I felt a sense of calm and caring and that feeling over the past months continues to grow as we have gotten to know each other. She is not only extremely knowledgeable about health and healing, but goes about explaining treatment and diagnosis in a manner that is not only thorough but understandable. I am so very thankful that I found Dr. Asbill and will continue on a journey of health and well-being… not as a sick patient looking for a pharmaceutical cure. I am feeling amazingly healthy and it is because of the partnership I now have with my doctor. Thank you Dr. Asbill.
My doctor listens very carefully to what I tell her and also asks questions.
“Following an unforeseen emergency visit I was diagnosed with anxiety. As a healthy 40 year old man it was difficult to define this as an actual diagnosis. I attempted to visit my PCP and found myself taking prescription medications that made me feel uncomfortable. I didn’t want to live life depending on strong medications. I got in contact with Dr. Calley Asbill and immediately knew I was headed towards a better quality of life. In addition to my anxiety, I also received treatment for painful varicose veins. The course of treatment was comfortable and extremely effective. Dr. Asbill is tentative to my concerns and provides exceptional care. I would feel confident calling Dr. Asbill for every aspect of healthy living.”
“Where do I start…I first came to Dr. Asbill after experiencing some trauma and not in a good place. I was seeking a doctor that would take the time to listen and explore what was causing some of the issues / symptoms I had. I knew immediately from the first visit that I found something special in Dr. Asbill. It was not the typical 10-15 minutes with my PCP but an extensive and probing examination. It was so refreshing and comforting to have someone to listen and provide in depth explanations to ensure I understood and felt comfortable with the diagnosis and treatment plan. I could tell she genuinely cares for her patients. I believe God places people in our lives at the right time…Dr. Asbill is one of them for which I am grateful.”
Dr. Asbill is a very caring and smart practitioner. She listens and does what is necessary to help her clients. She is ready when you come in for an appointment.
