Both conventional and naturopathic medicine in Marysville are valuable resources for patient care that focus on different aspects of the individual. Traditional medicine is essential in most emergency situations. Naturopathic medicine works best for preventing illness and disease since it emphasizes wellness through lifestyle, diet and nutritional supplementation. It also is an effective first step for treating chronic conditions like arthritis and eczema and for non-emergency sickness like the flu and a cold.
Conventional medicine is generally focused on relieving symptoms with medication or surgery. While this is sometimes necessary, there are often unwelcome side effects. Naturopathic medicine treats the source of the health problem and encourages the body to utilize its own innate healing properties.
Naturopathic care includes aspects of traditional medicine such as diagnostic testing along with alternative medical testing to effectively diagnose a medical problem. Naturopathic doctors or NDs can also write prescriptions, if needed, and offer referrals to medical specialists for acute care.
Naturopathic medicine is exceptional, in that:
- NDs work in conjunction with patients to treat a health concern.
- The source of the illness or disease is unearthed, and the entire person is treated without harm.
- Safe and all-natural therapies are stressed, like minerals and vitamins, herbs, nutritional IVs, bioidentical hormones, acupuncture, etc.
Your ND can be your primary care physician or work with your medical doctor or other specialist for your overall health care.
