Owner: Dr. Anorah C. Schostag, naturopathic doctor
Address: 2433 Hedgesville Road, Martinsburg, W.Va.
Opening date: March 17, 2012
Products and services: Naturopathic medicine, including individualized health consultations; natural healing modalities used include herbal preparations, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, nutrition, dietary supplementation and lifestyle counseling; natural pharmacy with remedies only available through physicians; thermal body imaging (thermography), which uses a specialized infrared camera to reveal inflammation and/or underfunctioning in the body. The infrared analysis includes male and female health screenings to evaluate breast, cardiovascular and carotid, lung, thyroid, dental and musculoskeletal health, as well as pain syndromes and immune dysfunction.
Target market: Individuals with complex health issues who are looking for other options to find relief. I like to see people of all ages, but baby boomers seem to be most interested in staying healthy and seeking out alternatives to enhance well-being and quality of life.
How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? For me, being a naturopathic doctor is a way to help people empower themselves, and that in turn makes me happy.
