Areas of Specialty

What are Dr. Park’s areas of specialty?

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation:
By incorporating the traditional as well as the latest science based natural therapeutics such as Western herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, homeopathy, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine (internal as well as external), Naturopathic manipulation, Structural Integration, Somatic Re-education, and muscle energy technique, I approach pain management and rehabilitation from several directions to facilitate a quicker and lasting recovery. I have had good success in areas of:

  • Post Motor Vehicle Accident
  • Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Chronic Knee Pain
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Ankle sprain / strain
  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scoliosis Rheumatoid Arthritis / Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Carpal Tunnel Sydrome
  • TMJ pain/dysfunction syndrome
  • Migraine / Tension Headache

Neuro-endocrine Disorders:
Understanding the patterns of the physiological inter-relations among the different biological systems of the body greatly enhanced my understanding of both Naturopathic and Chinese medicine. It has been my experience that an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the interplay between the autonomic nervous system and the different hormones of the body helped to broaden my knowledge base as a practitioner of natural medicine. I have dealt successfully with cases involving:

  • Hypertension
  • Cardiac Arrhythmias
  • Chronic Fatigue (Syndrome)
  • Insomnia
  • Diabetes & Impaired Glucose Tolerance
  • Thyroid dysfunction (Hyper..& Hypo…)
  • Adrenal dysfunction
  • Obesity
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Migraine Headache
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Polyneuropathy
  • Herpetic Neuralgia
  • Seizure / Tremor disorders
  • Hyperactivity
  • Vertigo & Tinnitis
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Infertility
  • Dysmenorrhea

Digestive Disorders:
In both Naturopathic and Chinese medicine, proper digestion and assimilation is an essential component to good health. By teaching and promoting a healthy wholesome diet, along with an individualized diet plan utilizing Naturopathic and Chinese Dietetics, and checking for food sensitivities, each person’s diet choices have to be fully addressed. I have seen that poor health starts in the digestive system, and thus by cleaning out and rebuilding the digestive tract with diet, herbal medicine and nutraceuticals, the overall health of the individual can greatly improve. Areas of experience include:

  • Constipation / Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Excessive Gas & Bloating
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Hepatitis
  • Candidiasis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Intestinal Parasites
  • Gastric Ulcers
  • Cholecystitis
  • Non-specific abdominal discomfort / pain
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease

Pediatric Disorders:
Natural medicine has traditionally been exceptionally effective with children. Starting with my own children, I have seen that with dietary modifications and few natural supplement support, children have the capacity to respond quickly and effectively to natural medicine. Diseases I have seen include;

  • Infant Colic
  • Ottitis Media (Ear Infections)
  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Juvenile Diabetes
  • Childhood Eczema
  • Childhood Asthma
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Vaccine toxicity Removal
  • Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder
  • Immune deficiencies (Chronic Colds / Flus)
  • Chronic constipation / diarrhea
  • Childhood depression / mood swings

Mood Disorders:
It seems as if everyone is on some form of anti-depressants / anti-anxiety medications. Using conventional medications for the suppression of certain mood tendencies can be useful at times. However, we often become too dependent upon the drugs to suppress our feelings deeper and deeper inside. There are natural and safer alternatives to the drugs as well as natural methods that aim at addressing the cause, rather than suppressing the symptoms. I have experience in;

  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Bi-Polar Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorders
  • Chronic Stress Management
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
  • Other Worldly Experiences…

Environmental Medicine:
Living in this chemical ridden land, it is essential that every health practitioner learns about the subtle signs and symptoms of environmental toxic burden, and incorporate proper testing and safe and natural detoxification treatment for this ever-increasing “epidemic”. Areas of treatment specialty include:

  • Heavy metal Toxicity
  • Dry Cleaner Agent Detox Program Stop
  • Smoking Program
  • Drug Rehabilitation
  • Seasonal Allergies
  • Chronic Sinusitis
  • Asthma
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Food Allergies
  • Chronic Unrelenting Cough

Skin Disorders:
Skin conditions are most often an internal problem. Skin is one of the main routes for internal toxins to be deposited. Once the internal system is detoxified and re-harmonized, the skin with some nutritional / herbal / homeopathic support, will come back to its natural vibrancy. Health conditions I have had great successes include;

  • Eczema
  • Acne Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Hives
  • Allergic Dermatitis
  • Fungal infections (Athlete’s foot, Jock itch, and fungal infection of the nails)
  • Chronic Dry Skin
