“My first visit with my naturopathic doctor was amazing! She spent a whole hour with me. I’ve never felt so listened to before.”
We try and make this statement the most said thing in our practice. People have often seen all kinds of doctors and other health care practitioners who spend as little as five minutes with them. When we’re with you, we aren’t anywhere else in the world. We give all the time we have to make sure we’ve got all the facts and know about every part of your health. We listen and make sure all your concerns are being met with top priority.
There are a few things that are very important to me:
Prevention: Our goal is to get you feeling as happy and healthy as we can, so that when stressful events inevitably come up, you’re better able to cope and manage through it in a successful way.
Root Cause Resolution: We always want to find the true root cause of what’s causing your health issues and medical concerns, and avoid simply masking symptoms without treating the underlying issue.
Individualized Treatment: Naturopathic Medicine is able to cater healing options that are suitable for your needs and lifestyle, while ensuring that we’re considering the big picture of what may be limiting your health potential.
Why Should I See an ND?
If You Have It, NDs Can Treat It!
Naturopathic doctors are used to treating all of the most common conditions seen in practice and thrive when we’re treating less common conditions. Some of the most common things we treat are listed in our FAQs. If you don’t see the condition you’re looking for, we probably treat it and would love to bring you not only restored health but peace of mind. Call to ask us about it!
NDs are Highly Educated
To become a Naturopathic Doctor, we have to enroll in a 4-year program at an accredited naturopathic medical school. You have to have a degree before you start (and I attained a Bachelor of Science), so every ND has had at least eight years of post-secondary education.
Naturopathic medical school involves thousands of classroom and clinical training hours, as well as working with real patients during our clinical rotation.
Many people are surprised to hear that NDs take the same diagnostic, anatomical, and pathophysiological training as medical doctors. It’s safe to say, we’ve put in the time and money on our skills to make sure you get the most of out of them!
Naturopathic Medicine is Covered by Most Extended Healthcare Plans
Most extended health care plans cover visits with your Naturopathic Doctor. Coverage may vary depending on your insurance company, but you can call them to find out what your plan offers.
Naturopathic patients often say they felt listened to for the first time after seeing an ND. Health concerns are a sensitive thing to talk about, and there are a lot of emotions surrounding a diagnosis or the figuring out the cause of unknown symptoms. We practice compassionate healing and make sure you get to tell all sides of your story. We’ll likely ask you things you’ve probably never been asked before to make sure we have a really good idea of all that’s going on for you. Patients love their NDs!
NDs Use Natural Therapies
Naturopathic medicine is designed to use natural interventions when possible, gently invoking the body’s natural ability to heal itself so you won’t have to keep wondering about side-effects from conflicting medicines. You’ve got other things to worry about!
NDs can look at your diet and your lifestyle, removing things that are getting in the way of you being healthy. We might use herbal medicines, or supplemental vitamins and micronutrients to help your body’s cells get back in balance. We want you to be able to rely on your body, and each person is unique so we do what it takes to get you feeling better. Saying we care aren’t just words, it’s a passion.
NDs Care About All Aspects of Your Health
NDs care about our body- all of it. Which is why we want to know how you’re sleeping. It’s why we want to know how well you’re digesting food, how your relationships are, and what your stress levels are. We want to work with you and explore all areas of your health to offer you complete, comprehensive care.
If all that works for you, then we’d love to start helping. Naturopathic doctors love their jobs and their patients.
