Naturopathic medicine is a distinct health care profession that combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as primary care providers who diagnose, treat, and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions while addressing disease and dysfunction at the level of body, mind, and spirit.
NDs concentrates on whole-patient wellness through health promotion and disease prevention, while addressing the underlying cause of the patient’s condition. They provide individualized, evidence-informed therapies that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches in order to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.
What To Expect In Your Initial Consultation?
Naturopathic medicine is among the finest examples of a health-focused, patient-centered therapeutic relationship. Rather than spending mere minutes reviewing a patient’s set of symptoms, naturopathic doctors work to truly excavate the layers to uncover the root cause of a disease.
The doctor and patient meet for extended periods of time (one-two hour is not uncommon) to discuss the patient’s unique story including their medical history, environment, lifestyle, diet, spiritual concerns, and anything else that helps to paint the picture of the patient’s health on a deep level. The ultimate goal is to design a plan that goes beyond treating symptoms and considers the whole person to use the least amount of force necessary to remove the cause of illness.
