As a homeopathic practitioner and naturopath, Dr. Julie Lachman works with patients to address the causes of their health concerns and restore health, naturally. Her practice, established in Doylestown in 2012, moved to a new location, in Furlong, on April 1. The updated space offers the same practices and specialties, including homeopathy, botanical medicine, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, constitutional hydrotherapy, biotherapeutic drainage, clinical nutrition and food allergy testing.
Lachman sees both adults and children for a wide variety of conditions. She is an expert in women’s health, including issues such as fertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome and weight gain. The clinic’s Body In Balance fertility program focuses on stabilizing hormones, naturally, without drugs or bioidentical hormones. “After determining the causes that prevent a woman from having a normal menstrual cycle, we use diet, homeopathy and other techniques to restore that balance. When a woman is cycling and ovulating normally, the stage is set for a healthy conception and pregnancy,” says Lachman.
The clinic’s innovative weight loss program is a six-month regimen that includes high-quality, physician approved supplements, a recipe book and a personalized binder for patients to track progress. “The program includes support for a full six months after the initial weight loss to help patients achieve and maintain their goals,” says Lachman.
Naturopathic medicine does not treat any one specific disease, but instead focuses on restoring balance to the body and finding the root cause of the problem. “I’m committed to getting at the reason for the symptoms and helping the body heal itself naturally,” says Lachman. The clinic addresses symptoms such as acne, constipation, asthma, autism, migraines, insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, diabetes and chronic pain.
In addition to treating patients in the clinic, Lachman is active in the community and has spoken at dozens of conventions and workshops in and around Bucks County. She’s been a member of organizations such as the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Pennsylvania Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians, International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, and is a certified CEASE (Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression) therapist.
