Naturopathic Medicine focuses on supporting the body’s innate ability to heal itself with supplementation of herbs, diet and nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and lifestyle management.and the Metabolism of glucose, fatty acid synthesis, utilization and the hCG mechanism.   She is very excited to be part of the hCG diet Program, which offers hope of not only wieht loss, but weight mainteance and ongoing good health.  Dr. Mullen’s training as a Naturopathic Physician gives her a broad scope of understanding, diagnostic skills and treatments in her areas of expertise.
