Welcome to drdanielheller.com. I am a naturopathic doctor, and I practice holistic medicine. This site is here to help you learn about my services and my expertise. I also hope it can help you sort through the conflicting health and wellness information you may have come across.
I have been practicing holistic medicine as a naturopathic doctor since 1995. In that time, I’ve come to develop what I call a “fad-free” philosophy. I’ve seen many trends come and go in holistic medicine and natural health. What I’ve found is that a simple and direct approach to health and healing works best: it is the most effective, and it is also the easiest for patients to apply to their lives. Holistic medicine really means healthy eating, healthy living, and healthy attitude. My goal as a naturopathic doctor is to assist you in finding and removing the cause of the problem, and helping your body to heal itself naturally. That’s why I focus on healthy diet and nutrition, and on the whole person. I use nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, lab work, and other methods to help your body and mind heal.
I also want to help you feel better quickly, but also in a lasting fashion. To me, you are a whole, vital person, not a disease or a collection of chemicals, organs, and cells. That’s why I believe that what truly helps me to help you, beyond just my knowledge and clinical experience, is that I listen to you. You’ll find that I really do care about my patients, and want to help you.
You won’t need to come in frequently for repeat office visits, because I don’t rely on techniques that provide short-lived relief but bring you back into my office again and again. I’ll do my best to help you get at the cause of your condition from the very first visit.
I believe holistic medicine is for everyone, which is why my fees are so affordable. I can work out a payment plan with you if need be. Some people with out-of-network insurance benefits are able to get reimbursed for my services, and my services are usually covered by flexible spending plans.
I have tremendous enthusiasm and confidence about what holistic medicine and naturopathic healthcare can do for you, because I’ve seen it work so well in thousands of patients. I’m excited to share how effective natural healthcare can be.
I’ve helped people with a wide range of health conditions: pre-diabetes, diabetes, anxiety & depression, chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism, and candida yeast problems. I am experienced working with allergies including food allergy and celiac disease; infections, including chronic or recurrent infections; diet and nutrition; digestive disorders, heart disease, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood lipids, and many other conditons.
I am a research fellow with the Optimal Health Prevention and Research Foundation in San Diego, CA, investigating medical biomarkers, food allergy, metabolic syndrome, mediterranean diet, glycemic index and glycemic load, dietary acid-base balance, magnesium, and caloric restriction.
I am a native Californian, born in San Francisco and having lived most of my life on the west coast. I also lived in New York City for close to ten years, and practiced as a naturopathic physician in Stamford, Connecticut from 1997 to 2008.
I have created a women’s health website, www.pmscomfort.com, dedicated to educating and empowering women as regards PMS and PMDD, and providing holistic natural relief solutions for premenstrual symptoms.
My other interests include anything related to nature, including birding, gardening, keeping cymbidium orchids, and observing the world around me. I have a lifelong interest in non-dual philosophy.
