What does this mean? Any health problem you might have can be addressed naturally by Stahler by means of botanic medicine or nutrition or bodywork. By optimizing your physiological states in this way, for example, metabolic syndrome, or Type II diabetes, can be treated. She co-manages your care with your medical doctor, making referrals when necessary; understanding prescription drugs and the subsequent potential herbal/nutritional interactions. She co-works with chiropractic doctors on physical structural problems.
Stahler’s passion is cranial sacral therapy because she has seen the power of this light-touch osteopathic therapy help people heal in indescribable ways. In recent open houses and health fairs, she has given demonstrations to participants, asking the question: “Who has a pain or injury that they would like me to address?” In quick order, each person has received significant soothing relief. To their follow-up question – “Can you treat my whole body?” – the answer is “Yes!”
In order to help people get to know her and her cranial sacral therapy work, Stahler is offering short, one-problem appointments such as knee pain, sore shoulder, TMJ, and painful lower back. A special introductory price is available for the month of October. Like an onion, factors underlying the injury or pain will be addressed in these appointments.
Stahler is happy to see you for longer appointments regarding conditions such as fibromyalgia, insomnia, gluten intolerance, IBS, pain/injury resulting from car accidents, sports injuries, or falls. Her expert knowledge of natural medicine helps you optimize your health as an equal partner in your care.
Stahler is also teaching a 10-week course on gluten-free cooking for Liberty Adult Education’s winter quarter. In the spring quarter, she’ll teach everyday common herbal medicine using Herb Pharm and Wise Woman tinctures and Gaia products available in area health food stores.
Having earned a bachelor’s degree in nutrition from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Stahler completed her dietetic internship and earned a master’s degree in public health from University of California, Berkeley, where she fell in love with the Bay Area.
One of the reasons she chose Brentwood for her practice is the city’s deep-rooted connection with agriculture. Stahler knows food crops inside and out, having earned a doctorate in horticultural genetics from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. She received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, a prominent naturopathic school. Stahler’s extensive training and scientific mind helps her sleuth out the cause of her patients’ health problems and formulate a plan to restore them to health.
Madrona Naturopathic Healthcare is located at Delta Spine and Sportcare, 350 John Muir Parkway, Suite 265 in Brentwood. For appointments, call 925-513-8883.
