NJ Natural Medicine ~ A Comprehensive Approach to Holistic Healthcare

Dr. Jason Frigerio was premed at Connecticut College when he discovered naturopathic medicine and realized that the conventional medical approach wasn’t the right fit for him. He soon began the intensive six year dual-degree program at the prestigious National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, where he received a doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine and masters in Oriental Medicine. A licensed acupuncturist as well as a naturopathic doctor, Jason now successfully runs NJ Natural Medicine in New Vernon. He treats a varied patient population, ranging in age and illnesses including constipation, kidney disease, cancer and emotional disorders.

During the two-hour preliminary consultation, Dr. Frigerio assembles a comprehensive health history of each new patient in order to potentially identify underlying causes for their illnesses. He uses Bio Resonance Therapy, an electrodermal screening device that tests food sensitivity, allergies, evaluates the organ network of the body, explores pathogenic microorganisms that may be factoring into the patient’s presentation and tests different supplements to see which may resonate better in each patient. Afterward a treatment is usually offered, which may include soft tissue bodywork, acupressure and acupuncture. The doctor finds that soft tissue work is incredibly effective in releasing blockages in the body and can identify where imbalances may lie. As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Frigerio has extensive training in nutrition and frequently offers patients advice on how to live well and healthfully though dietary changes. Nutrition is a major component of naturopathic medicine; it is fundamental to good health.

Dr. Frigerio believes that even when cases are long and challenging, his work is always rewarding. He explains, “I’ve been blessed with a wonderful patient population. The more you work with people and help guide them through health challenges, the more you realize the importance of positive attitude, finding meaning in your life and being happy. It is an opportunity to connect and support people.” He continues to be popular with his patients because he focuses on understanding the whole person, spiritually, emotionally and physically, remaining wide open to any information that presents itself in order to see the big picture.

The doctor creates a casual, peaceful atmosphere in his office with an “underlying focus on connecting with people and not just treating a disease. I focus on treating the individual and understanding the challenges they go through.” In order to ensure a positive and joyful experience, he offers them a space where they can feel completely heard. He says, “Listening is a powerful healing tool in its own right—listening with an open mind and heart to every person.” Dr. Frigerio practices a sustainable approach to healthcare, using simple changes and treatments to create a plan that can be utilized long-term.
