Naturopathic medicine has benefits
Naturopathic doctors try to use the gentlest approach in treatments and health care posing the least risk of side effects. A naturopathic doctor can play a key role not only in addressing health concerns but working with you to accomplish health and wellness goals from disease prevention to lifestyle changes that benefit your emotional and physical state.
Most of us only act when symptoms appear. We see a dentist for a toothache or our doctor if the pain or physical sign causes concern. Naturopathic doctors are your health care provider to address and treat immediate health concerns but also look to the underlying cause such as disease to prevent symptoms from returning. Further to that your Naturopathic doctor looks after your health advising and recommending proper nutrition, exercise, supplementation, balanced lifestyle changes and emotional support to boost your optimal wellness. By promoting wellness, a Naturopathic doctor aims to prevent or mitigate any symptom or concern that brought you to their office in the first place. No one wants to experience reoccurring symptoms of pain or discomfort.
Naturopathy is safe and effective
Naturopathic doctors employ treatments with emphasis on non-toxic and natural substances. As a health care provider, a Naturopathic doctor will look at your complete lifestyle and will advise and recommend a complete health regime.
Naturopathy treats the cause versus the symptom
Naturopathic doctors go far beyond addressing immediate symptoms. They look to the cause in order to take an active role in prevention. Pain, discomfort or physical signs can be symptoms of underlying issues. A Naturopathic doctor will, of course, treat the immediate symptom but will work with the patient examining their entire history and lifestyle in order to promote their health.
Naturopathic doctors learn about you
The root of Naturopathic philosophy is treating the whole person. A Naturopathic doctor will treat each patient as an individual and learn their patient’s medical history, family history, emotional state, environmental conditions, social, diet and nutrition and lifestyle in order to evaluate and address health concerns. A Naturopathic doctor can play an important role in disease prevention and not just symptom treatment.
Naturopathic treatments are highly individualized. You have a unique story, history, genetics, dietary habits, lifestyle and associated health concerns.
