How He Practices
Dr. Lemley has a unique style of practice. On the spectrum of scientific to esoteric medical treatment, his practice is closer to the scientific end. Dr. Lemley uses scientific laboratory methods of testing that are generally accepted within the medical community (not all naturopathic doctors do this). He prefers proper medical diagnoses from formal medical authorities, rather than using more esoteric methods such as muscle testing or kinesiology. Put simply, Dr. Lemley’s diagnostic technique would be akin to any conventional medical technique. He uses the same or similar methods, equipment, and procedures.
He differs from conventional medical doctors in that he believes in a treatment regimen that uses natural modalities, such as herbs, homeopathics, specific clinical nutrition, intravenous therapy, Chinese medicine, etc.
Dr. Lemley specializes in women’s health, and anti-aging care for both women and men. For women, he has extensive experience and knowledge in the areas of peri-menopause, menopause, and hormone therapies (and is the only naturopathic doctor in southwest Montana that openly specializes in this field). Additionally, he specializes in anti-aging treatments in men (aka “manopause”).
Specific reasons that lead women to seek Dr. Lemley’s expertise include PMS, peri-menopause, menopause, osteoporosis, heart disease, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), annual exams, bio-identical hormone therapy, fertility issues, colon problems, fibrocystic breast disease, anxiety/depression, hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, heavy cycles, irregular cycles, acne, migraines, bladder infections, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
