Make The Most Out Of Your Naturopathic Visit

Seeing us for the first time? Here are some tips to make the most out of your appointment. 🌱👩🏻‍⚕️

1) Write down your medical history before your appointment.

2) Identify any health concerns including digestive problems, sleep troubles, skin issues, or low energy.

3) Naturopaths will take the proper time to get to know you as an individual. Be ready to answer questions about your physical health, emotions, and well-being. This will typically include how much sleep you get per night, what you eat in a day, and how much caffeine and alcohol you consume.

4) Think about the biggest concern regarding your health and what key symptoms have bothered you over the past year.

The Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

THE PRINCIPLES OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE 🌱🌞🌙🌼🍃🌻

1. The Healing Power Of Nature – Naturopathic physicians facilitate the healing process by removing obstacles to cure and identify treatments to enhance healing.

2. Identify And Treat The Cause – Treat the underlying causes of illness rather than just the symptoms of disease.

3. First Do No Harm – A naturopathic treatment plan uses therapies that are gentle, non-invasive, and effective.

4. Doctor As Teacher – The Latino root of doctor is docere, which means “to teach.” The primary role of a naturopathic doctor is educating, empowering, and motivating patients to assume responsibility for their health and adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle, and diet.

5. Treat The Whole Person – It is the patient that is in need of treatment, not just the disease state or symptom.

6. Prevention – It’s far easier and cost effective to prevent a disease than to treat a disease. Naturopathic doctors uncover potential susceptibilities of future disease states in their patients and work on preventing them.
