When not practicing or teaching, Dr. Noé lectures nationally on naturopathic medicine and phytotherapy.
Dr. Noé practices traditional Cherokee medicine, a method that encompasses mind, body and spirit and requires patients to participate in their own healing processes. The Cherokee Way honors not only the medicine that is used to affect the physical being, but also the Spirit that is in each and every living thing and affects us all concurrently. In 1987, Dr. Noé was accepted as an apprentice by Crosslin F. Smith, high medicine priest of the Keetoowah, the western band of Cherokees in Tahlequah, Okla.
When developing a treatment plan, Dr. Noé assesses all symptoms and causes of a condition – not only the physical aspects, but the spiritual, emotional and psychological facets as well. Her practice is based on a holistic approach that incorporates a patient’s thoughts, feelings, lifestyle, family history, environmental stresses and nutritional status. Using naturopathic medicine, Dr. Noe teaches patients how to restore and maintain their own health through living in harmony with themselves and their environment.
