May 15-21 is Naturopathic Medicine Week! We're celebrating by shining a light on our Naturopathic Doctors and sharing some information about what Naturopathic Medicine is and what it's like to work with a Naturopathic Doctor.
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct branch of primary health care rooted in a philosophy of assisting the body’s capacity to heal by using the healing power of nature. There is a focus on using less invasive treatments, treating the root causes of disease, and removing obstacles to healing.
What should I expect when I meet with a Naturopathic Doctor?
At HealthPoint, naturopathic physicians are important members of our patient care teams and are highly skilled at integrating natural medicine into any treatment plan.
Like other providers at HealthPoint, naturopathic physicians provide routine health screenings, physical exams, as well as visits to address both acute and chronic health conditions. In addressing your health concerns, a naturopath will most often include questions about your diet, exercise, sleep, and emotional well-being. Treatment plans may include natural treatment modalities such as herbal medication, lifestyle recommendations, supplements, homeopathy, acupuncture, and physical medicine, but may also include conventional medications.
How can I learn more about HealthPoint’s naturopathic doctors?
You can get to know our naturopathic doctors on the HealthPoint website.
If you’re interested in learning more about naturopathic medicine or choosing a naturopathic doctor as your primary care physician, please call your clinic and request an appointment with the doctor of your choice.
