Dr. Sanaz Forghani is a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor in the state of California. She earned her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. What intrigued her most about this particular medicine was its component of psychology (mind-body connection), which she chose as a Bachelor’s major at UCLA. She believes that the greatest wisdom of Naturopathic Medicine is that it considers mental, emotional, spiritual, and social factors in the treatment of the individual and not the biophysical factors alone. An intimate understanding of the patient’s psychology, life-style, family, and belief system is not just desirable, but very much the center of her outlook. Valuing the naturopathic principle “Docere” (doctor as teacher), she supports that if the patient is to be the true protagonist of his/her health, the doctor must then not undermine the patient’s initiative. The doctor must inspire and guide patients to heal themselves. In her practice, she utilizes homeopathy, drainage remedies, detoxification and cleansing protocols, botanical medicine, therapeutic nutrition, lifestyle modifications, dietary supplementations, physical medicine, as well as prescription medications when warranted. Common conditions she treats include, but are not limited to allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, depression, diabetes, digestive complaints, fatigue, fibromyalgia, hormonal imbalances, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, migraine headaches, and sinusitis.
