One of the biggest dilemmas of today’s health care is that it largely employs pharmaceutical drugs that are designed to control symptoms.
There is no dispute that these drugs save lives and serve an important role in today’s health care. They can allow for comfort that enables one to continue to work towards better health. However, although symptoms of an illness are important to address, it is not where treatment should stop.
Naturopathic medicine focuses on a holistic approach seeing each person as an intricate and inseparable whole of body/mind/spirit. It's health care that goes beyond treating symptoms to addressing the root cause of an illness. Your ND will do a comprehensive health history, any lab testing required and develop a health plan aimed at supporting you achieve optimum health. The goal here is to help you, not just survive, but to thrive!
