Naturopathic Medicine in Guilford, Connecticut

Hello and welcome! I am a licensed Naturopathic Physician (ND) who provides in-person and telehealth visits to those seeking a holistic, natural approach to their health.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct medical profession that combines evidence-based medicine with traditional therapies such as herbalism, homeopathy, and other natural substances. 

Naturopathic doctors diagnose and treat illness by addressing the underlying causes of disease. My approach involves nutrition, detoxification, lifestyle counseling, and body function optimization.

I start by providing a holistic, individualized evaluation of your symptoms and their potential causes. This is followed by a treatment plan that aims to rapidly restore your health and increase your resilience to illness.

A Holistic Approach

I specialize in the holistic treatment of mental health conditions and digestive disorders.

My approach combines perspectives and diagnostics from conventional medicine with philosophies and treatments from naturopathic and homeopathic approaches.

Is Naturopathic Medicine Effective?

Read what others are saying:

Dr. Pistoia evaluated and successfully treated me for a stubborn gallbladder condition that had stumped another doctor and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.


He's a highly analytical thinker with an incisive mind and an ability to synthesize symptoms into a cohesive picture of a person's health.

I've been struggling with digestive issues for over a year now and worked with many doctors to figure it out. Dr. Pistoia helped get to the root of the problem and genuinely cared about what I was going through.


After the first visit he helped me to understand why my body was doing [. . .]. Within 2 weeks my symptoms were gone.

Dr. Pistoia is wise beyond his years and explains everything to you so you can understand why you are dealing with whatever you are dealing with and how to fix the issue. Have an open mind and heart going into naturopathic medicine, and Dr. Pistoia will help you heal and have your body thriving again so you can enjoy life.

About Me

My mission is to provide you with the education and care you need to rapidly restore your health and improve your resilience to illness.

I’ve been studying health since childhood and have always been curious about the human body and life in general. Nature, psychology, and physiology topics in particular have always interested me. 

Fortunately, I was introduced to the importance of exercise and nutritious eating early in life due to my father's weight loss goals. I took to cooking and exercise rather easily, but I was also introduced to illness early on, as I struggled with skin problems, IBS, and frequent infections.
