Serene Natural Health specializes in treating brain health disorders using natural medicine. We have a unique approach that sets us apart. Each practitioner at Serene Natural Health specializes in working with brain health and is an expert in their particular area of treatment. Brain health is complicated and multifactorial. In order to successfully treat brain disorders multiple treatments are often necessary for healing. Most of our patients see more than one doctor at our clinic in order to receive care from the expert in that area.
