Naturopathic medicine is primary health care that uses the wisdom of the ages – treatments that have been practiced for hundreds of years. It focuses on the prevention and treatment of disease and injury while also placing an emphasis on continued optimal health. Naturopathic medicine treats the body as a dynamic organism that seeks to be in regulatory balance, both internally and in dynamic interaction with the environment. As such, naturopathic medicine focuses on treatments that cover all aspects of health, concentrating on the whole person. Using natural remedies, naturopathic medicine does not simply treat symptoms – it attempts to find and treat the underlying cause of the condition.
At Pinewood, we strive to be your partners in health. When you make an appointment with us, we will spend as much time as is necessary to speak with you about your medical history, goals for your health, and any specific issues or illnesses you would like to address.
At your first naturopathic consultation, the Naturopathic Doctor will conduct a thorough interview, encompassing your complete medical history. We recommend you bring with you any diagnostic or blood test results within the previous six months that relate to your initial concern. We also suggest you bring with you any current medications, supplements or natural remedies you are taking.
Upon review and discussion with you, the Naturopathic Doctor will recommend any treatments that may benefit you and how those treatments will help. You can ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have. After you and your doctor make a treatment plan, you will receive thorough support from our staff throughout the process.
