Dr. Emily Maiella

Trained as a naturopathic primary care physician, Dr. Maiella enjoys visits with the entire family, including infants, children, adults of all ages and pregnant/postpartum mothers.

Her specialties include the treatment of Lyme disease and long standing infections.  Her focus is to balance and restore the immune system, using a variety of natural plant-based anti-microbials and immune modulators.  Emphasis is placed on detoxification of heavy metals and toxins, dental health, and gastrointestinal restoration.  Treating the “infection” may be further down on the list of priority than most people would think, though infection is methodically addressed at each visit, as your treatment plan changes as YOU change.

Every visit includes a comprehensive assessment and physical exam, using Autonomic Response testing (ART), which is the work of Dr. Deitrich Klinghardt.   Please read about this assessment tool here.

The use of ART helps to identify organ dysfunction, infection and toxicity as well as facilitate communication from the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious.  With your permission, Dr. Maiella helps her patients to identify and resolve traumas/conflicts using methods such ART, psychokinesiology (PK), mental field therapy (MFT), color therapy, eye movements and generational genograms.   You may be asked to dedicate a few visits just to focus on this work.

Your  self reflection and inner work will synergize and strengthen all other suggested treatments.

Dr. Maiella loves living close to nature by growing organic vegetables and fruits, and being a graceful steward of the earth.  She loves nurturing all things, plant, animal and especially her children.
