Naturopathic treatment modalities include:
Naturopathic doctors believe food is the foundation of good health and will therefore work with the patient to assure their diet is one that supports health.
The plant kingdom provides an endless sources of natural therapies. Botanical medicines are typically provided in liquid tinctures or dried botanicals in capsule form.
Using spinal and joint manipulation techniques similar to a chiropractor, the naturopath can help restore normal joint function.
It is based on the belief that disease develops when energy (chi) that flows through the body in distinct pathways called meridians becomes blocked. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, chi can be unblocked and the body will return to health.
Everyone is exposed to environmental toxins from air, water, and food. The body has mechanisms to eliminate toxins, however in many chronic disease conditions, the body’s elimination pathways have been compromised. Environmental medicine is a modality that recognizes this imbalance and focuses on eliminating further exposure as well as restoring the body’s detoxification pathways through diet, specific supplementation, chelation, depuration, IV Therapy, etc.
Naturopathic doctors are trained to use all standard lab analysis testing (e.g. blood chemistry, chemistry panel, cholesterol profiles, auto-immunity panels, hormone testing, etc). Naturopaths will also use specialized testing such as Food Allergy IgG Panels, Urine Toxic Metals, Organic Acid Testing, Nutritional Profiles, Comprehensive Stool Analysis and Neurotransmitter testing.
