Benefits of a Naturopathic Doctor

Naturopathic doctor

Most people strive for the best health possible.  Traditional medical treatments and prescriptions are the mainstay of our system and will probably always remain so.  You may have heard of naturopathy.  That offers a holistic method to maintain well being.  It is often used in conjunction with traditional treatments and can dovetail nicely.


Sound practices of healthy eating and reasonable exercise are a solid foundation for dealing with many conditions that can be easily prevented.  Naturopathy is similar in that it offers strategies for the individual to decrease the chance for some diseases through the natural elements in the body.  In some cases, it can also help with conditions like menopause, sleep disorders, and stress reduction.


This is a system that works collaboratively with your traditional medicine healthcare providers.  It focuses on using natural processes including herbs, massage, acupuncture, nutrition, and exercise.

The naturopath will help find the natural, self-healing properties in the body, including solid nutrition from whole foods, superfoods, and appropriate exercise.  


A naturopathic doctor will conduct a thorough examination including a detailed discussion of your lifestyle.  Since they seek to treat the entire individual, you may expect questions to cover the body, mind, and spirit.  They are trying to find the source of any illnesses, rather than to just treat the symptoms.

The treatment will probably consist of developing a personalized plan incorporating diet, stress management, and exercise regimen.  It can also involve massage, acupressure and acupuncture, and herbal treatments.  The goal is to develop and maintain a balance in the body.


There are different types of naturopathic practitioners:  physicians, traditional naturopaths, and other healthcare providers.  Each will have a different educational background.  Before beginning with a new provider, carefully research their education, training, licensing, experience, and references.


Most people find the fees for naturopathic consultations quite affordable.  

Conditions Treated

Some of the more common conditions that benefit from a naturopathic session include fertility issues, obesity, chronic fatigue, headaches, and other issues.  Some are specially trained in natural childbirth.  

Combining traditional medical treatments and prescriptions with the holistic methods of a naturopath can be the answer for many people.  Working with MDs, pharmacists, and therapists, you can find the best solution for healthy living.  It is important that all parties be kept fully advised and seen regularly so that all elements of your healthcare can be coordinated and work to the optimum benefit of the patient.

When embarking on a multi-disciplinary approach, be sure to ask many questions to be sure you understand all the implications.  Always have all your providers communicate frequently.  You can develop a team that you trust and can rely on for the best treatment options, both traditional and natural.
