Jackson is able to order both conventional and alternative labs tests to ensure the most accurate diagnosis possible during the initial consultation; she also can interpret lab results ordered by other practitioners.

Naturopath Medicine is a distinct system of holistic, primary healthcare whose focus is to treat the whole person by addressing the root causes of illness, rather than just suppressing troublesome symptoms. Therapeutic modalities such as herbs, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements, individualized diets, bodywork, and pharmaceutical medications are utilized to promote, physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual well-being.
Jackson is available to see acute walk-in cases such as upper respiratory infections, digestive complaints, UTI’s, minor injuries, etc, but will refer to Urgent Care in the case of a true medical emergency. She may recommend nutritional supplements, herbs, or homeopathic remedies from the pharmacy’s extensive selection of professional-grade products, or prescribe a pharmaceutical medication onsite if necessary.
Patients can be seen on a walk-in basis during Dr. Jackson’s regular office hours in the pharmacy (Monday and Friday from 12-5pm). Appointments during pharmacy hours are available by calling 808-463-8730.
