Naturopathic medicine in Lake Stevens is a branch of medicine that holds to the belief that the body is capable of healing itself by following certain precepts that include eating organic foods, completing moderate exercise on a regular basis and living a balanced lifestyle. It combines the best of both modern and traditional medical practices and believes that treatment should not involve harmful side effects. Practitioners of naturopathic medicine are medical doctors who specialize in complementary medical treatments that utilize homeopathy, acupuncture, nutritional supplementation and herbs.
The goal of naturopathic treatment is to improve overall health, treat illness of all types and prevent disease by treating the whole person – spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. By carefully eliminating the cause of an illness, the root of the problem is addressed, rather than just managing symptoms. Patient education about illness, healthy living and working cooperatively with the patient are important, too.
Naturopathic healing must involve comprehensive evaluation through laboratory testing, physical medicine, nutritional and botanical additives, personal counseling, acupuncture, injections and more. Each person is treated individually, just as in conventional medical practices.
