Pharmaceutical prescribing:

Dr. Rae regularly prescribes medications to her patients, and can assist you to safely weaning off unnecessary pharmaceuticals, in particular when better alternatives are available.  Sometimes medication is necessary, however, and Dr. Rae will use it with the minimum dose possible to achieve the best results.  Dr. Rae also uses medications in new and innovated ways to support your body’s ability to heal itself, rather than to just to repress symptoms, contrary to what is typically done in the conventional medical system.  She uses this approach in many conditions such as hormone balancing (i.e. bioidentical hormone replacement) and inflammation modulation.
