The scope of practice for naturopathic medicine includes all aspects of preventative and natural health for your family, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Naturopathic doctors can help patients with ailments such as colds and flus, injuries and sleep disorders, as well as with more chronic health concerns such as arthritis and chronic pain, allergies and asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, digestive disorders, HIV/AIDS, adjunctive care for cancer and much more.
Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention of disease, encouragement of the body’s inherent healing abilities, treatment of the whole person and personal responsibility for one’s own health. In addressing your illness or efforts to optimize wellness, the naturopathic care team might prescribe vitamin/mineral supplements, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, provide physical medicine and hydrotherapy treatments or recommend changes in diet, lifestyle and exercise.
Annual wellness exams are an important component of preventative health. Wellness exams include a comprehensive assessment of body systems, screening physical exam and personalized additional screenings tailored to your health goals, risks and needs. Make an appointment.
While firmly science-based, modern naturopathic medicine also preserves the centuries-old wisdom of successful natural therapies. Your naturopathic team takes the time to listen and to get to know you as a whole person. As a partner in your own health care, you play an integral role in making decisions about your treatment.
Individuals unsure of how to choose the best treatment for their condition are urged to begin by making an appointment with a naturopathic care team. Initial appointments are comprehensive and last 1-1/2 hours.
