We take pride in our patient commitment
Our physicians take the time to get to know their patients. Whether you have never seen a naturopathic physician, or are a seasoned veteran of natural medicine, our physicians can help you navigate the often perplexing maze of information regarding your health. Combining the science of medicine with centuries-old healing arts, we strive to strike a balance of the best of both worlds.
Regardless of your current health status, whether you are battling a chronic degenerative disease, training for a marathon, or seeking preventative medicine, natural medicine can help you achieve optimal wellness. Optimal wellness is a mentally, physically and emotionally balanced state– a state your body constantly tries to attain. Unfortunately, many obstacles can prevent that balanced, healthy state. Our job is to help you identify and remove these obstacles to good health through targeted nutrients, herbal medicine, homeopathy and diet.
At the Clinic of Natural Medicine we treat you, not your condition. We believe that whatever your disease or condition may be, it is a manifestation of underlying imbalances in your body. Determining these underlying imbalances is an essential step in correcting them. This is achieved through a thorough consultation (our first visit is often one hour in length), a review of all conventional testing (blood work, pathology reports, imaging, etc.), a physical/nutritional exam, and further testing if indicated (conventional or non-conventional blood work, salivary, fecal or urine analysis). This may even include analysis of your genomics, which tell us at the most basic of levels how your process certain nutrients or break down substances your body manufactures, like hormones, catecholamines, and neurotransmitters.
Symptoms as Language
Symptoms can be viewed as the language of the body. One role of the naturopathic physicians at the Clinic of Natural Medicine is to interpret your symptoms. While it is possible that several symptoms are unrelated, it is also possible for themes to emerge from a symptom complex. The body must be looked at as a whole as well as its parts. While the conventional medical profession has divided the body neatly into areas of expertise, this reduction to parts does not always allow for assessment of the entire functioning unit. There is not a single process in the human body that takes place in isolation. Treating the whole person, as a unique individual, is essential for successful care.
Doctor Means Teacher
The term doctor is taken from the Latin word “docere” which means teacher. At the Clinic of Natural Medicine, our naturopathic physicians will dedicate the time needed to guide you through the “what’s,” the “why’s” and the “how’s” of improving your health. By understanding your condition and the precise rationale behind their therapeutic recommendations, you are empowered to take control of your health.
