What a Naturopath Can Do For You
When visiting a Naturopathic Doctor, the experience is much more than a regular doctor's appointment. It's like seeing a family doctor who is an expert in natural medicine. Naturopathic Doctors treat many different forms of health concerns. Everything from frequent infections to longstanding digestive and hormonal issues, from children's to senior's health concerns. Anything that you may have questions about that has to do with your body, a Naturopath can help.
Really, it's the approach that makes seeing a Naturopath different from other doctor appointments. They take the time to look at the root cause of what is going on in your body, life and environment to make a diagnosis and then provide treatment options.
Why patients see a Naturopathic Doctor.
Have inflamed skin, abdominal cramping, bloating or diarrhea? You may have a food sensitivity or food intolerance. Some Naturopathic doctors offer lab testing or elimination-challenge diets to determine if you may have food allergies, intolerances or sensitivities. After taking a look at what you eat, your symptoms and how it's effecting you, they can recommend what can help you and if you might need further testing.
Want more answers about your child's health?
If you're wanting to take a more natural approach to your child's health then a Naturopathic Doctor can absolutely help. Parents can make an appointment for their child as early as an infant for an examination. They will have the time to ask any questions or voice any concerns. Naturopaths can help with many different problems, but some common health concerns for children include: eczema, food sensitivities/ allergies, asthma, frequent colds & flus, ADHD, digestion, recurrent ear infections and much more.
Diagnosed with an illness, and looking for different options?
Being diagnosed with a possibly chronic disease or illness can be scary and leave you feeling vulnerable. Naturopathic medicine is highly effective when patients combine conventional and naturopathic medicine and treatments. Using naturopathic medicine can minimize the side effects from prescription drugs, surgery and treatments.
Are you recently pregnant?
Just having another person for support while you are pregnant, is one less thing you have to worry about. There is so much information to know, so many questions to ask. Seeing a Naturopath while you are pregnant can help to promote wellness and health for yourself and the baby. Naturopaths work with midwives, family doctors and obstetricians together as part of a team. Naturopaths help with using herbal medicine, acupuncture, diet and lifestyle, and vitamins and minerals. These treatments help during pregnancy to relieve any symptoms you may be having during and after your 40 weeks of pregnancy.
