Meet the Doctor
Dr. Stephanie Bartolotti, DACM, AP, CFMP
Welcome to New Direction Natural Medicine! I am here to help alleviate your chronic health issues with a natural approach. We offer the most relaxing environment, take the time to listen to you and offer natural solutions to resolve your chronic health problems. If you are like me, you are probably not satisfied with taking prescription medications, which only mask the symptoms, leading to more pills to combat the side effects of the first pill, and so on… Now I am just as skeptical as the next person when it comes to the “magic solution for your health problems”, but I can honestly say that after many years of treating patients I am still completely blown away when I see each patient drastically improve their health through the power of Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Functional Medicine.
Patients often come to see me when they’ve tried everything without success. Nothing is more rewarding than to see someone who has struggled for years finally overcome their health problems and be able to enjoy life! With a combination of this 5,000 year old medicine and sophisticated functional diagnostic testing, I am here to provide you with the best quality natural healthcare tailored specifically for your case. No two patients are the same, which is why we create
customized treatment programs to fit your healthcare needs and
help you achieve your goals.
As a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, I have been fortunate enough to be able to help patients overcome chronic conditions including: pain, allergies, anxiety, depression, fatigue, infertility, digestive problems, autoimmune disease, hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, arthritis and more. My patients absolutely love their treatments and I am always amazed to see their transformation. There is no greater feeling than seeing a patient struggling with infertility finally become pregnant or a patient with debilitating pain become pain-free!
Chinese medicine is a holistic medical system in which we address the root cause of your illness by identifying patterns of symptoms and strengthen the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Functional medicine identifies the root of your health problems (i.e. parasites, heavy metal toxicity, mold, nutritional deficiencies, etc.) via lab testing to treat the core issue causing your symptoms.
The combination of these two powerful systems of medicine allows me to help patients with just about any chronic medical condition without invasive procedures or harmful side-effects. I also help patients identify emotional, lifestyle and dietary issues that are at the core of their illness and help them to make positive changes in their life. I look forward to helping you overcome your health challenges and getting you on the road to a healthy and happy life!
