Frequently Asked Questions

Danielle Hofer is a traditional naturopathic doctor and works with your medical doctor providing natural health care suggestions, but she is not a medical doctor.

In August 2024, Danielle will sit for board certification from the American Naturopathic Medical Association as a Traditional Naturopath. She is a certified Nutritonal Therapy Practitioner from the Nutritional Therapy Association. She has a Masters in Education and a Bachelor’s in Secondary English Education from Butler University. 

Additionally, Danielle continues her education with other cutting edge root cause seminars throughout the year. 

Naturopathic medicine is based on treating the underlying cause of illness and stimulating the body’s self-healing mechanisms, and therefore can treat a whole range of ailments. 

By encouraging the body to function properly, by restoring balance in all the interconnected systems of the body, optimal health can be achieved. 

Once this happens, symptoms will clear on their own – for symptoms are nothing more than a warning signal that an imbalance exists beneath the surface of the body. 

Traditional NDs are trained in subjects such as anatomy, physiology, gastrointestinal health, dietary evaluations, nutrition, food-based supplements, homeopathy, herbology, acupressure, homeopathy, exercise therapy, hydrotherapy, oxygen therapy and detoxification.

Traditional NDs personalize the healing modality to the needs of the individual with methods which are effective for both chronic and acute problems. Traditional NDs cooperate with all branches of medical science, referring individuals to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.

In practice, traditional NDs perform lifestyle analysis, nutritional and dietary assessments, metabolic analysis and other evaluative procedures. They are trained to use a wide variety of natural methods, which involve the individual in the healing process. Naturopathy is based on a belief in the body’s natural ability to heal itself when given an appropriate internal and external healing environment. Naturopaths are not involved in the practice of medicine and do not use drugs or pharmaceuticals, nor do they perform abortions or surgery. They have traditionally been referred to as “drugless doctors.”

In reality, traditional Naturopaths deal with wellness and relief from conditions, which are the result of stress whether from mental, nutritional, environmental or physical factors.

Expect to spend 60-90 minutes with Dr. Danielle. She will review your intake forms with you to ensure all gaps are filled in and she understands you and your circumstances. 

Then she will take time to muscle test (in person) or ask a series of deeper questions (virtually) along with other kinesiology testing needed based on how you present. 

She will then order functional labs for you, provide you general nutrition, lifestyle, and supplementation to get started on until she can create you a full protocol after viewing your labs. Note- it may take 2-4 weeks to get your functional labs back depending on the type of lab ordered and how backed up the lab is.
