Naturopathic Medicine : All the Body’s Systems are Interconnected
The human body is designed to maintain its health. If you are not feeling at full health, it does not mean your body is breaking down. The symptoms you feel are your body’s attempt to adapt to some strain. Symptoms are signals for us to start investigating that strain and eliminate it.
Naturopathic Physicians are Medical Detectives
The first step in our investigation is to listen to you. We know that the best information regarding your health is going to come from you. Different bodies lose their healing ability for different reasons, and Naturopaths work closely with their patients and listen to those individual symptoms for clues about each unique case. A Naturopathic physician looks at the symptoms the body is exhibiting as clues to a root cause. Symptoms are not just eliminated. When the underlying cause of your symptoms is discovered, a Naturopath has the knowledge and training to recommend methods to support your body’s healing.
What can I expect from a visit to your office?
A Naturopathic investigation includes a detailed history, physical exams, laboratory analysis, and other diagnostic procedures. Your first visit will include a thorough history of your case and a physical examination. Pertinent lab work will be ordered. There will be time for you to ask any questions pertaining to your doctor’s background and approach. Follow-up visits will be shorter and we will continue treatment or address any acute needs you may have. You will leave each visit with a detailed, individualized, easy-to-follow treatment plan. We also encourage you to call or email with any concerns or questions you may have.
