Hello! I’m Faith Schwartz, founder of Thrive! CMH Holistic Health & Wellness Center LLC. I am a holistic health practitioner with a doctoral degree in traditional naturopathic medicine. I’m also a clinical herbalist with nearly a decade of education and experience in the science & art of natural medicine.
My journey into the realm of natural health was motivated by a desire to care wholly and completely for the health needs of my family. When my first child was born I read book after book on pediatric health care, nutrition, and herbology. As the years went by, four more children were born into our family and I took my education to the next level, pursuing formal training in homeopathic medicine, Western herbalism, and finally a degree in traditional naturopathic medicine.
Now, I’m able to better serve my community and my family by providing complimentary and alternative options for any health challenge.

Is a Traditional Naturopath a licensed doctor?
Traditionally-trained naturopaths are not licensed medical doctors (M.D.). By law we do not diagnose, treat, cure or prescribe drugs for disease.
Traditional naturopaths use the doctor of naturopathy credentials (N.D. or H.H.P) to consult with clients, as well as to teach, write and access medical research.
At Thrive! CMH you’ll receive recommendations based on the latest research in health care combined with effective, natural, healing therapies that will help you achieve lasting relief from your chronic health issues.
Most importantly, these natural approaches can be used solely -or- serve as complementary, safe, additions alongside your conventional medical care.
