Dr. Jody Noe
Dr. Noe is a Naturopathic Oncologist and a Cherokee Medicine Woman. She runs a practice in Pawcatuck, Ct.
Jody's classes at Farmacy are always a blend of well researched science, stories, physiology, nutritional healing and herbs. Dr. Noe believes that nature acts in a powerful and profound manner through mental, spiritual, and physical mechanisms to restore balance and health. In a healthy person, balance is usually quickly restored, but when the healing capacity of a person is compromised, help in healing is needed. She use natural, effective, and non-toxic therapies to support the body's natural healing process, stimulate the body's vital force, and prevent further disease from occurring. She shares these therapies in our level 2 programs.
