Dr. Malik is a Vermont and Connecticut licensed naturopathic physician. He attended a four-year doctorate program in naturopathic medicine at a nationally accredited university. Naturopathic physicians are trained in the appropriate, effective and safe use of natural and prescription medicines. Preventive and holistic medicine requires knowledge of the whole body and an understanding of how an individual’s concerns can be a sign of simple underlying dysfunction. There is always a balance to be struck between addressing the underlying cause of disease and simply improving the symptoms associated with it. An important goal is to have improved and lasting vitality as quickly, easily, and affordably as possible. When used in effective and safe doses, high quality natural therapies are powerful medicines. With many patients, the goal is to prevent or reduce their need for prescription medications. When necessary, natural and alternative approaches are used in conjunction with pharmaceutical therapies. Our goal is to maximize each patient’s capacity for health, vitality, and longevity.
