Common Conditions We Can Help With

 

Naturopathic Care is based on strengthening and bringing balance to the main systems of the body, including the systems of: immunity, digestion, elimination, and neuro-endocrine signaling. Overall, naturopathic medicines will optimize metabolic function so an individual can perform to their highest potential in life. Also known as functional medicine, this is done by understanding which systems of the body are overstressed and overburdened and then building them up with safe and effective natural medicines, thus treating underlying causes instead of just symptoms. Naturopathic medicine has a particular focus on the following general approaches to building health and improving the body's natural ability to recover from illness:

 

  • Detoxification
  • Balancing and rebuilding the GI tract
  • Balancing and supporting the hormonal system
  • Support for stressed out patients by strengthening the adrenal system
  • Reducing allergies and the inflammatory load
  • Building up and supporting the immune system
  • Working on proper nutrition and well-being through a whole food based diet and appropriate exercise
  • Emotional support and balance

 

The following list provides a look at the range of medical conditions for which we can provide supporting natural medical care. This list is not exhaustive, and because the goal of the natural medicine modalities we practice is to increase the ability of one's body to respond effectively to disease and ill health, we can actually aid in a wide range of disease and health concerns, from psychiatric issues to chronic physical illness to cognitive problems.
