HOW I CAN HELP
What exactly is a naturopathic doctor?
We are medically trained (4 years post-undergraduate degree) with a focus on natural therapies, naturopathic doctors (NDs) blend the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s innate ability to heal itself. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.
NDs can treat all medical conditions that you may see your family doctor for.
Some of the most common concerns I treat
Although I focus a lot on detox, weight-loss, energy and hormone balancing, here are the most common concerns naturopathic medicine excels at treating:
Chronic pain- especially headaches
What treatments do Naturopathic Doctors use?
Since most of our philosophy is centered around getting to the root cause of your symptoms (so that they disappear for good), we focus on fundamental dietary changes, lifestyle habits (sleep, stress, exercise), vitamin supplements, herbal products , even acupuncture to treat your problem. If we need more information we can run advanced lab tests first (saliva, blood or urine), and prescribe bio-identical & thyroid hormones as necessary.
Basically, every patient is unique and every treatment is tailored on an individual basis. However, the overall framework of being healthy is always focused on the same foundational principles: diet, exercise, sleep, stress. I help you master the basics before you can fine-tune your needs (then , of course, I can help with that too).
