Philosophy of Health

The philosophy of Dr. LeAnn Fritz, ND, MA

LeAnn is a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) and a Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP). She believes that God created the body to be self-healing when it is given the proper tools (nutrients) that it needs. Due to lack of fresh air, sunshine, pure water, raw and organic foods and also due to high stress levels, diets rich in processed foods and poor spiritual health, our bodies often seek to tell us that it is time for a change by showing warning signs or symptoms that we too often ignore. These symptoms could include (but aren’t limited to):


  • inability to sleep well
  • skin problems
  • headaches
  • PMS issues
  • constipation
  • stomach pain
  • hair loss
  • low energy
  • bloating
  • allergies
  • depression
  • back pain
  • trouble losing weight
  • and more

These symptoms are NOT normal. They are the body’s effort to help you understand that something needs to change.

What is Naturopathy?

The goal of a naturopathic doctor is to seek out the root cause of health problems and to educate the client on how to aid the body in becoming balanced, repaired and full of vitality.

The essence of naturopathy can be best explained by these six principles:

  1. First, do no harm (no therapy should help one area of the body while harming another)
  2. The body was created to be self-healing if given what it needs
  3. Identify and remove the root cause (rather than “manage” or suppress symptoms)
  4. Treat the whole person, not the illness (there is more to YOU than your symptoms)
  5. The Naturopathic doctor is primarily a teacher (one’s health is a result of one’s own choices)
  6. The value of prevention is integral to optimal health

"After 2 1/2 years of running a fever, continual sinus infections, and fatigue to the point that all I wanted to do was sleep, I want to thank New Hope Health, LeAnn specifically for doing what she does. Over the last year and a half she has walked me down the path of natural healing and found the source of the fevers, something the medical doctors I saw could not, even with their sophisticated medical technology and testing! I now have the energy to spend time doing things with my ever so energetic 7 year old and have not run a fever in many months! Thank you LeAnn Fritz ND for the continued encouragement and all that wonderful training you have done to be able to help others! You rock!"

—Jaimie Miller, Gobles, MI

“I had a great week! I feel like I have been happier this week. Lots of good things going on and trying new recipes. Weight is starting to come off again and that of course makes me happy too!”

—Sherry Cook, Lansing, MI

“LeAnn’s program for me has been incredible... after just a few weeks, I have seen major improvements. Saw diabetes doctor today. She was very happy. Been off all meds for 2 months now. A1C dropped 1.9 without meds. She is willing to continue watching my experience.”

—Tom Mather, Montrose, PA 

“Finally! A holistic practitioner who treats the whole body with knowledge, care and compassion. Thank you, thank you, thank you LeAnn. I see the light that you held up for me!”

—Diane Wenger, Kalamazoo, MI 

“The day after having LeAnn mud pack some old injuries, my thought were more clear; I was more focused and able to come up with solutions to problems much easier and quicker than before my sessions.”

—Juanita Marvin, Plainwell, MI 

“I had been having severe, unexplained pain in my hands. The pain would sometimes keep me up at night. After seeing LeAnn, I learned so much and made several changes. Somewhere in all this MY HAND PAIN ABATED DRASTICALLY! No more pain meds at all! I don’t know what specifically is the cause, but I know the solution and it is wonderful!”

—Cheri R., Kalamazoo, MI 

“Before working with LeAnn, my health and life was in terrible shape. I had numerous health issues including kidney stones, high blood pressure, overactive and fatty liver, obesity, fatigue, gout, pseudo-gout, body pain, headaches, acidic body PH, acid reflux disease, high cholesterol, borderline diabetes and a very poor mood/outlook on life. I was on 6 different medications for my many issues when I started working with LeAnn. I have worked with LeAnn for 7 months now. The results have been many and significant. I have lost 82 pounds; my blood pressure is now normal without medication; my gout and pseudo-gout issues are now gone without medication; my energy level is very high and steady throughout the day; my sugars are normal and steady; my body PH is neutral now; my acid reflux disease is gone without medication; my body pain is gone; my mood/outlook on life is great now; my liver is now normal; my cholesterol level is normal now; and perhaps the most dramatic result is no more kidney stone production after passing 17 of them! My relationships are much better without the pain and stress of health issues. I haven’t taken a sick day at work in 6 months. I am able to exercise rigorously now. Working with LeAnn has opened my eyes to the overall state of health worldwide and especially in the U.S.A. The most significant thing I have learned is that your overall life experience is directly affected by what you put into your body.”

—Jerry Phelps, Mattawan, MI

“When I first walked in to LeAnn’s office, I had lots of questions about a healthier life. LeAnn was very helpful in getting me started on my healthier journey. She guided me in making healthier decisions in my day to day living. Thank you LeAnn for the jump start!”

—Mary Stull, Allegan, MI 

“What supplements do I need? What vitamins do I need? The pharmacy is full of them. Which one is best? Dr. LeAnn gave me two simple tests and she had all the answers I needed. How simple is that! I am so glad I know her.”

—Elizabeth DeJager, Shelbyville, MI 

“I was feeling weak since a sinus infection months ago and had no energy to train for a running goal. After a visit with LeAnn and following her program for just one month my strength is coming back— I feel so much better!”

—Sue, Galesburg MI 

“After just a few weeks of changing my diet along with the supplements my body was lacking, I felt like I did as a young adult. My energy level went from sluggish to high gear! I still feel great just maintaining your recommended diet. Thanks LeAnn I appreciate you!”

—Jan Peeters, Otsego, MI 

“My blood work was far from what I had hoped for when I finally started paying attention to all those numbers, (LDL’s HDL’s, TRI’s, iron, vit. D, sugar, etc.). I turned to LeAnn after a visit to her office and asked about supplements. I scheduled my first consultation with her and followed the plan that she created for me and was amazed when all my organs started improving and my body became more alkaline. Now I live in Florida and still follow her advice. My blood work improves every year and this Jan. MY MEDICAL DOCTOR WAS JEALOUS of MY NUMBERS. What a wonderful thing. LeAnn put my health back in my hands. Thank you LeAnn.”
