Dr Tamara Potselueva is a Board certified Naturopathic Physician and Registered Nurse licensed in the State of Connecticut. Naturopathic Physicians use methods of healing that employ various natural means to empower an individual to achieve the highest level of health possible by supporting the body's own healing processes. The relationship between the physician and patient evolves with a patient-empowerment approach. Illness may provide opportunities for positive change and new balance in life towards its meaning and purpose.

It can be used as a Preventive medicine, as intervention in acute stages of diseases and during recovery periods, also as a support in various chronic conditions bringing self healing on the way to optimal health.
