Naturopathic Medicine

Natural Doctor, Natural Health, Holistic, Acupuncture, Naturopath

Naturopathic medicine is a holistic system of medicine which supports the natural healing ability of the body. It is a combination of the wisdom of nature and the rigors of modern science and medicine. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions, while addressing disease and dysfunction at the level of body, mind and spirit. NDs focus on whole patient wellness through health promotion and disease prevention while identifying and addressing the underlying causes of each individual person’s condition. Dr. Carrie provides gradual, effective and personalized care that is tailored to you and your lifestyle.

Natural healing modalities such as nutrition and lifestyle counseling, vitamins, minerals and botanical supplements, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, clinical and functional lab testing, drug-nutrient interactions and more.

First, Do No Harm: Naturopathic medicine is gentle and effective. NDs choose the least invasive and least toxic treatment options necessary for each patient. The Healing Power of Nature: Naturopathic doctors understands and supports the inherent healing power of the body. Identify and Treat the Cause: Symptoms are the way our bodies tell us that something is wrong. Naturopathic doctors strive to determine and treat the cause of illness, not just treat the symptoms. Treat the Whole Person: NDs recognize that the body is an integrated whole and treat the patient, not their disease. Naturopathic Doctors will assess many aspects of health including nutritional status, lifestyle, family medical history, genetics, environmental and social factors of each person’s life. Doctor as Teacher: A Naturopathic doctor’s major role is to educate and encourage the patient to take responsibility for his or her own health. NDs are catalysts for healthful change, empowering and motivating the patient to assume responsibility. Prevention: “Prevention is the best cure”. Naturopathic medicine promotes overall health, wellness and prevention of disease.
