As a Quantum Biofeedback Specialist, Dr. Shiva sees Quantum Biofeedback as an integration of Quantum Physics and Naturopathic Medicine and as an amazing way to help awaken our innate healing abilities and wisdom.
Dr. Shiva’s specialty is Blood Chemistry Analysis based on the Functional Medicine principles, Bio-identical Hormone Balancing and Replacement, and Quantum Biofeedback. She uses state of the art Blood and Saliva Testing to evaluate blood chemistry, nutrition and hormone levels. Then using these results she customizes a Hormone Balancing Plan specific for your needs.

Natural hormones combine with hormone receptor sites and elicit biological effect without many of the undesirable side effects that are seen with the synthetic form
