About Dr. Archdeacon

In his family practice, Dr. Gabriel Archdeacon treats patients of all ages, suffering from all types of conditions.  Philosophically he believes that it is best to treat individuals from a young age and establish a pattern of health early in life.  For this reason he specializes in Pediatrics.  

Dr. Gabriel believes that the health of a child is directly related to the health of the parents at the time of conception and throughout pregnancy.  Dr. Gabriel enjoys helping young people of reproductive age optimize their health in preparation for having children in the future.

Dr. Gabriel practices primary care medicine utilizing a holistic approach.  Symptoms are not themselves illness, but the signs of illness.  Suppression of these symptoms (either with natural remedies or pharmaceutical medications) will lead to recurrence, or the development of a more serious condition.  Instead, Dr. Gabriel’s approach is to offer relief from symptoms when necessary through palliative treatments while determining and treating the underlying cause.

Dr. Gabriel practices a form of Martial Arts called Qi Gong.  He is also an outdoors enthusiast, naturalist, and forager of wild edibles and medicinals.

Dr. Archdeacon holds a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and certification in Natural Childbirth/Midwifery from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon.  NCNM is the oldest accredited naturopathic college in North America.  In addition to five years of formal medical training, he has completed a three year internship in pediatrics and midwifery at the Natural Childbirth and Family Clinic (now Canyon Medical Center) also in Portland, Oregon.  

Dr. Archdeacon is a certified practitioner of Core Synchronism, a version of Cranial Sacral Therapy taught by the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics.

Dr. Archdeacon received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biotechnology from Rochester Institute of Technology.

In the state of Vermont Dr. Archdeacon is a Licensed Primary Care Physician (PCP) and accepts both private and state health insurance.  As a Naturopathic Doctor he is able to serve you either as a PCP or in an adjunctive role.

About Dr. Renner

Dr. Renner received her doctorate degree from the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine and her master’s degree in Acupuncture from the University of Bridgeport Acupuncture Institute. Her doctoral training focused on the prevention and treatment of illnesses through natural therapies such as nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, mind-body medicine, physical medicine, and hydrotherapy.  Dr. Renner furthered her studies in mind-body medicine, classical homeopathy and CranioSacral therapy in order to focus her practice on the integration of the mind-body-spirit connection.  Dr. Renner loves to incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture into her diagnosis and treatment plans with patients.  She is currently a licensed Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist in the state of Vermont.

Dr. Renner strives to find the root cause of illness and disease and to treat each patient according to his/her own personal needs and individuality.  It is her belief that the root cause of many illnesses are related to stressors in one's life, past and present.  Paying attention to how a person's life story and stress accumulations have affected him/her are often the most important and crucial components to consider for true healing to take place.  As such, Dr. Renner pays close attention to how these factors have influenced her patients and how to help her patients move forward in a healing way. 

Dr. Renner has successfully treated people with a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, hormone imbalance, menopausal symtpoms, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, food intolerances/allergies, seasonal allergies, thyroid disease, joint pain, headaches, migraines, back pain, Lyme disease, and much more.


About Our Practice

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care -an art, science, philosophy and practice of diagnosis,  treatment and prevention of illness. Naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles which underlie and  determine its practice. These principles are based upon the objective observation of the nature of health and disease,  and are continually reexamined in the light of scientific advances. Methods used are consistent with these principles and  are chosen upon the basis of patient individuality. Naturopathic physicians are trained as primary health care physicians  whose diverse techniques include modern and traditional, scientific and empirical methods.

Naturopathic practice includes the following diagnostic and therapeutic modalities: nutritional medicine, botanical  medicine, naturopathic physical medicine including naturopathic manipulative therapy, public health measures and  hygiene, counseling, homeopathy, acupuncture, prescription medication, intravenous and injection  therapy, and appropriate methods of laboratory and clinical diagnosis.
