Whether your body is in optimal health or you are receiving treatment for one or more medical conditions, naturopathic care is beneficial to all individuals. Based on the premise that the body was designed to heal itself, naturopathic treatment for oncology, pain and discomfort, and detoxification can benefit both men and women. Additionally, gender-specific care if available to treat and prevent the most common ailments that target men and women; which includes working with patients undergoing treatment for prostrate, breast, uterine, cervical, and ovarian cancers.
Naturopathic doctors not only help treat patients currently undergoing treatment for disease, but they also work with patients to prevent cancer or maintain a status of remission, undergo detoxification from the chemicals found in our food supply and environment, and restore a body’s system that may have suffered damage. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat patients holistically by restoring their systems back to the balance nature intended and to educate patients regarding the damages our bodies receive from outside sources and how to avoid them.
To determine if damage has been done to a person’s body, naturopathic doctors may indicate a variety of specialty tests are indicated. These are different tests from typical lab tests and are used to check for specific deficiencies or imbalances your body may be facing. If needed, your doctor will discuss each with you and proceed accordingly to develop an individualized care plan.
