What Is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is the cornerstone of your private healthcare, as it treats health concerns by finding and effectively managing the root cause and associated symptoms. This will be evident right from your first visit, as it will last approximately 1 hour. This time will allow us to really get to know you and collect as much information as possible pertaining to your health concerns.
We may recommend that you complete certain assessments, questionnaires or laboratory tests in addition to performing a complaint-oriented physical exam. Once the required information is obtained, we design an effective, practical and gentle treatment protocol to best meet your needs and abilities.
Modalities implemented may include one or a combination of:
- Nutritional management
- Nutritional supplements
- Therapeutic massage and/or lifestyle counseling
We believe in the Patient-Centered Care model – this means that your health is our top priority! We are happy to collaborate with your medical doctor and other members of your health care team to ensure that you are getting the very best care possible. We are confident that this is the best way to bridge the gap between the conventional and alternative healthcare systems!
You should know that reaching your health goals will require your time and commitment! We invite and encourage you to be an active part of your health care solution.
This is best accomplished through our provision of ongoing patient education and empowerment. When possible, we will present you with various treatment options, so that you can make educated decisions relating to your health. We welcome your feedback and understand that you may have some obstacles – please share them with us, safe from judgment, so we can modify your protocol and set you up for success!
