Naturopathy is a fantastic choice towards being proactive about your health. Conventional medicine has its place especially in times of emergencies and sometimes, alongside with naturopathy. However, many people who chose to take the naturopathy route do fine going all natural and allowing the body to heal itself without having to deal with medications that can have side effects. When dealing with non-emergency acute illnesses such as a cold or flu, we believe naturopathy is the best choice to help build up the immune system.
However, with that said, there is a place for medicine, but we as a society here in the U.S. have been known to be a bit over medicated compared to the rest of the world. Here at Nutritionally Yours (our holistic center), we tend to be more balanced. That is why we also have a medical doctor on staff who works in conjunction with our naturopath for unique situations. However, a good portion of our patients hardly ever and sometimes never need to see the physician.
Prevention is probably the key factor as to why someone may not need to see the medical doctor. That is because when it comes to naturopathy, people are most likely to be proactive about their health, making lifestyle changes that include a healthy diet and supplements as needed. However, in other situations, someone may have been very health conscious but still have an illness due to nothing they did wrong. For example, getting bit by a Lyme infected tick or inheriting an autoimmune disease. These people depending on the severity of their chronic illnesses may need to incorporate both naturopathy and conventional medicines (even though they may have made healthy choices before becoming ill).
At Nutritionally Yours we teach and educate our clients on how to obtain better health and wellness through Naturopathy. We work in a partnership with our clients and take the time to understand their overall health history. Nutritionally Yours uses a variety of natural remedies.
Some techniques of naturopathy that we chose from for a client include herbal remedies, natural remedies, homeopathy, vitamin and mineral programs and nutrition counseling. We see people in our office that have a wide variety of acute and chronic health concerns.
Each person is given an individualized support program to help them achieve better health and wellness. The goal is to educate, guide and support each client in regards to alternative remedies to help each person to take charge of their own good health.
The truth about naturopathy is that it is an excellent way to learn about yourself and your health; you will have a partnership with your naturopath for your health. You will also become more proactive and feel better than you have in years! Your body can heal itself in many cases, and with naturopathy, you can improve your health naturally!
