Conventional medicine typically works by first trying to determine what your health condition is, i.e., coming up with a diagnosis, and then treating the condition with prescription drugs and/or surgery. With the help of imaging technology and biochemical tests, medical doctors are pretty good at finding the cause of your health condition and treating it using the means they have available.
What happens when they can't figure out what's wrong with you?
Such patients typically go from doctor to doctor and get no help or are made worse by being prescribed inappropriate treatments.
This is where naturopathic medicine can help. A naturopath doesn't need to know your diagnosis to be able to treat you, although it helps. We can look at your whole symptom picture and prescribe treatments that emphasize the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Naturopathy is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes the use of natural remedies to promote healing and wellness. Naturopathic practitioners focus on treating the whole person, rather than just the symptoms of a specific condition, and use a range of techniques including herbal medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling.
Many diseases are caused by chronic inflammation in the body. By reducing inflammation through nutrition, supplements, acupuncture, and lifestyle, you are likely to see improvements even in conditions that haven't been diagnosed.
If your doctors can't figure out what's wrong with you, consider seeing a naturopath. We can make suggestions that will improve your quality of life.
