Naturopathic Medicine

The healing power of nature in Body, Mind and Spirit

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, rather interest their patients in the care of the human frame through lifestyle and diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease," - Thomas Edison.


Naturopathic Medicine holds that we have it within ourselves to heal.

A Naturopathic Physician is trained to employ nutritional counseling, botanical and homeopathic medicine, hydrotherapy, traditional Chinese medicine, physical medicine (including Bowen Therapy, Massage Therapy) and energetic medicine. A regular part of practice also includes more conventional methods such as ordering lab-work and other diagnostic testing. Currently, licensed Connecticut Naturopaths cannot prescribe pharmaceutical medication, although Dr. Storch may collaborate and recommend its use.


Hi, I'm Fran Storch, N.D.,


Fran Storch, N.D. received her B.A. in Psychology with Laboratory Science from Rutgers University in May 1985. She then worked in market research and toxicology, before taking a position as associate pharmacologist at Wyeth-Ayerst Research in Princeton, NJ. There she did research in behavioral neuroscience for 5 years. She then attended the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR, where she received her Naturopathic Doctorate degree in 1995. Dr. Storch has practiced in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, Canada and in Mystic, CT


Many Connecticut based insurance policies cover Naturopathic services. We are currently credentialed with: Anthem, Cigna, Connecticare, Healthnet and Oxford. Each policy has different benefits and not all policies will cover our office visits. We accept Husky plans which cover people under 18 years of age. Medicare does not cover our office visits, but we may be able to bill your secondary insurance plan.
Dr. Storch is a member of Connecticut Society of Naturopathic Physicians, as well as the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

Welcome to my Website!

The goal of Naturopathic medicine is to search for the cause of the problem and treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. We strive to use the least harmful therapies in each individual's case. Caring for and educating the patient with an emphasis on prevention is important to us. We engage the patient as an active participant on their journey to maximum health!


How can Naturopathic Medicine help me?

At any age, naturopathic medicine can help you access your own power to treat and prevent illness. Your first visit consists of an hour of extensive history taking, including review of your current medications and/or supplements. In between the first and second visit, we follow up by requesting lab-work and/or reviewing previous physician's records. You will then create a diet diary for one week. Think of food as your fuel, it is important to know what is going on with you! At the second visit, we pull together the pieces as we get a complete picture of your dynamic system.
