Prevention is 1000X Better than finding the Cure!! What is Naturopathy?
The whole premise of Naturopathy is preventative medicine, to prevent illness from the beginning. When you choose to live the VitaLife, you choose to stay happy and healthy. It's also about treating the individual patient. Unlike conventional medicine, where several patients may get the same medicine for a sore throat, Naturopathy treats the individual, so each patient will have a different natural remedy. Conventional medicine tends to treat just the symptoms; your doctor gives you a prescription based on the symptoms you're exhibiting.
Naturopathy is well-rounded and takes into consideration many factors, not just the symptoms. It looks at the whole picture: your mind, body and emotional health and you are individually treated with a natural remedy. A Naturopath will try to get to know their patients very well so that they may get to the root of the problem. At the same time, because Naturopathic doctors are still trained in conventional medicine, they can order some conventional labs and scans when necessary, alongside alternative medicine tests (like nutrient blood tests and food sensitivity panels).
This well-rounded approach to your health care ensures that you get the best possible treatment. I know that many of you may have questions about Naturopathy and I invite you to ask me here, using this forum. I am happy to answer all your questions and comments, let's start talking!
To Your Health and Wellness!
