Naturopathic or Natural medicine works with an individual’s body as an integrated whole to achieve what conventional medicine cannot.
The current, mainstream model of Western medicine ignores the real causes of disease and illness. But naturopathy gives an individual the opportunity to dramatically improve chronic problems that are poorly addressed by conventional medicine.
Naturopathic medicine can be the best of both worlds, blending the latest medical science with modern complementary & alternative medicine. Natural medicine addresses the causes of a person’s illness and treats them naturally, rather than just throwing drugs at symptoms.
Naturopathic practice includes the use of a detailed, hour-long history at the initial visit, clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing, nutritional and botanical medicine, diet and lifestyle modulation, and hormone balancing.
Naturopathic doctors focus on treating the cause of illness to promote and maintain health, rather than masking the symptoms. Medicine is changing. People are seeking a more integrated approach to their healthcare needs. Simply taking prescription drugs doesn’t make one healthy. Naturopathic Doctors can treat all medical conditions and can provide both individual and family health care. Among the most common ailments they may treat are allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
