Now you might be thinking: Medical doctor and natural health? The two just don't mix. Trust us – it does! Dr. Zickler has a strong interest in all aspects of health, especially nutrition and naturopathy. He has always believed that as a doctor, it is his responsibility to not only help his patients recover from disease and illness while it exists, but to also help prevent disease and illness from occuring at all. Dr. Zickler's philosophy on health became even more clear, when his daughter decided to study as a naturopathic doctor.

Optimal Health According to Dr. Zickler


Combining his medical experience and interest in natural health, Dr. Zickler believes that optimal health can be achieved by being proactive and practicing health care management early in life, rather than only treating a health condition when it becomes a severe. This is made possible by combining good nutrition and natural medicine into your everyday life, and using western medicine only when needed.
