Naturopathic Health Consultations with Dr. Connie Hernandez


Hawaiian SunsetWhen I first started practicing medicine, I saw so many simple cases… sore throats, ear infections and high cholesterol, among others.

Moving from rural Vermont to Silicon Valley, I welcomed far more complex cases and stressed people into my practice. Clients were coming in with anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Moods and sleeplessness often revolve around unresolved health and lifestyle issues. Though conventional antidepressants may sometimes be the answer,I often find these conditions to be caused by or aggravated by underlying nutritional or hormonal excess or deficiency.Clinical psychologists and psychiatrists often refer to me to test for and correct the underlying imbalance. Connie Relaxing at the Retreat CenterPatients may self refer for help in understanding the center of gravity in their particular case. There may be a need for social or spiritual support, major lifestyle change, or direction in selecting an appropriate mental health professional to work with on an ongoing basis.

Helpful natural therapies may include bio-identical hormones, balancing of adrenal and thyroid glands, correction of blood sugar issues, targeted amino acid therapies, vitamins or minerals, herbal supplements, homeopathy, flower essences, exercise, breathing practices, or meditation. I annually teach an energy medicine class series through the Ananda Sangha, emphasizing spiritual and vibrational approaches to physical, mental, and emotional healing.

What patients and colleagues say about Dr. Connie

AshaAs a teacher of meditation and a spiritual counselor, people often ask for my help in resolving challenges in all areas of their lives. Often I sense that some physical imbalance, perhaps quite subtle, is contributing to their distress. I am so grateful then, for Dr. Connie Hernandez. Naturopathic medicine is a remarkable blend of science, art, and intuition, and Dr. Connie is a master physician. Countless times her skillful diagnosis and treatment has been a key factor in helping people regain their physical, mental, or even spiritual equilibrium.

Wendy RogersAs a transpersonal psychologist, I believe that wellbeing and vitality emerge from the alignment of body, mind, and spirit. A stressful lifestyle and neglected health issues sabotage our efforts to experience well being and vitality. I refer my clients to Dr. Connie with full confidence that she will assist them in not only identifying but resolving health and lifestyle issues. I value Dr. Connie's sensitivity to each client's unique needs and circumstances, and her expertise, thorough approach, and caring nature. I trust Dr. Connie and know my clients are in good hands.

Bonnie Zimmerman - Photo Not Available"I've collaborated with Connie Hernandez, N.D. in the care of a number of people with long time anxiety and depression. Dr. Hernandez'holistic approach to diet, food absorption, endocrine evaluation, and support of the nervous system has been quite synergistic with the mindfulness-based therapy I do. Combining her approach and mine, I have seen people come off anti-anxiety medications, anti-depressants and alcohol after many years of use, and maintain the ability to meet life without spiraling into depression or anxiety. I have also seen a number of the chronic health problems that often accompany long term depression and anxiety fade away as Connie and I work together, so that people no longer have chronic gastrointestinal pain, headaches or severe menstrual cramps.
