Natural Therapy

Natural Therapy Advisor: Ben A. Hokenson, DC


Natural therapy, commonly referred to as “Alternative Medicine,” is an integral part of healthcare focused on wellness rather than disease.  Health is the natural state of the body and mind.  Sickness and disease are a result of our bodies’ inability to adapt to the compounding effects of physical, chemical and emotional stress in our body, leading to toxicity and deficiencies.  The focus of natural therapy is to support and enhance our body and mind’s inherent self-healing and regulating capabilities.  Interfering stressors and toxins are removed, thus providing the essential natural ingredients that we lack in order to regain and maintain physiologic compatibility known as “health.”


The mission of Uriel's Natural Therapy division is to increase the understanding and participation of “Alternative Medicine’s” role in the care of the patient.  Working closely with the Medical Research division, the Natural Therapy division’s vision is to promote health and wellness by supporting preventative healthcare pursuits, research, and quality healthcare delivery.
