Treatment of Chronic Illness in Sedona Arizona

Chronic illness often leaves people frustrated and at wits' end. Even the the best of conventional treatments may not address the suffering of these conditions. The symptoms of persons with chronic illnesses may cause them to feel tired, irritable and unwell. Though they may know that lifestyle changes may help them, they feel stuck and unable to make those changes.

Through combining my knowledge of naturopathic, Chinese, and mind-body medicine, I support people in their path to health. Energetic medicines such as acupuncture and homeopathy often aid people in removing the blocks impeding better self-care choices. Counseling and lifestyle changes help to address the multi-faceted dimensions of illnesses.

Many chronic illnesses and symptoms, such as chronic fatigue and migraines are multifactorial and require addressing those contributing factors at different levels including diagnostic testing, energetic treatments, nutritional interventions and emotional balancing.

I collaborate with primary care physicians, physicians of various specialties, and practitioners of other healing modalities to provide comprehensive care that addresses the needs of the patient as a whole person.

When we first came to see Dr. Rubiales, my daughter Liz really felt there was little hope to feel better and nothing she could do to control her life and headaches. Jump ahead to the present and with no small thanks to Dr. Rubiales, she lives much more pain free, she is empowered to control her reaction to pain, and she is much more positive! Thank you does seem inadequate! We are thankful for Dr. Rubiales being such a blessing and role model in our lives.
