"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for our own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think can be most useful."

Mona strives to understand how ones whole being contributes to their overall wellness. She learned this firsthand when becoming quite ill as a young woman, eventually being called to cure herself. This experience enlightened her understanding of the interactive relationship between the body, spirit and mind in determining wellness. As a naturopathic physician, this conviction guides her treatment of patients. She invites them to be an active participant in finding the root causes of their ailments, striving to empower her patients with the knowledge to take control of their own well being.
Mona welcomes patients with a full range of medical concerns, running the gamut from allergies and digestive disturbances to diabetes and heart disease, honoring the healing power of the individual while often utilizing natural remedies and non-invasive treatments. She also has the ability to prescribe medications and help patients find more suitable long-term alternative solutions to those where appropriate. Dr. Bhalla welcomes patients who have never tried naturopathy before, eager to work together with those who have been unable to find the help they need. She is also willing to work alongside patients’ current primary physician(s) to find an integrative and effective treatment plan.
The main tenet of naturopathic medicine is also a core belief held by Mona: the body will inherently tend towards health if obstacles are removed and a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual health is nourished.
Mona has a true passion for family medicine, and enjoys working with whole families, including children, young adults, adults, and seniors to discuss healthy lifestyle recommendations in hopes of preventing the onset of disease and/or improving their quality of life. Mona has long been interested in helping people in the most profound and effective way possible via understanding their stories and how that relates to their physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual health.
A resounding theme in the patient feedback Dr Bhalla receives is that she is compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental and trustworthy - a true partner in health.
