Dr. Marilyn Tran,

Naturopathic Doctor

“The natural force within each of us is the greatest healer of all.”

Hippocrates, Father of Modern Medicine

 

The human body is truly miraculous. At any given moment, innumerous natural processes transpire to keep us well and alive. The irony is that more often than we would like to believe, our minds – fears, negative thoughts and self-limiting beliefs – get in the way. For that reason, treatment plans created by Dr. Tran emphasize healing both the body and mind.

Clients appreciate Dr. Tran for her compassionate approach to care. She takes her time getting to know them as individuals above and beyond their medical conditions. She is also meticulous in her intake and examination of test results to uncover the true root cause of disease.

Because all systems of the body are interrelated and function together, in treating one, others will also be addressed. In simplest terms, Dr. Tran treats conditions connected to mental health, digestion, and skin problems.

Dr. Tran believes in setting a strong foundation for health. Starting from the basics, clients who actively participate to transform their health will benefit from the best outcomes.

Most clients report feeling more at ease, refreshed and uplifted after their consultations and treatments with Dr. Tran.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a scientifically-validated method that teaches you to clear your mind, quiet your emotions, and calm your body. It is a simple and systematic approach to help you attain greater levels of health and well being by becoming more present and aware in the moments you actually live. Instead of struggling to get away from experiences you find difficult, you practice being able to be with them. Equally, you can bring mindfulness to pleasant experiences as well.

 

Mindfulness meditation can help you:

  • Relate to stress in more creative ways
  • Reduce endless mind chatter in order to think more clearly
  • Become more aware of how you truly feel, and why
  • Sleep better, lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety and depression
  • Better manage the emotional and physical pain that often accompany medical conditions such as cancer, heart disease, back problems and psoriasis
  • Get off the worry treadmill and become more productive and happy
