Naturopathic Medicine Treatments for Adult and Paediatrics
Naturopathic medicine treatment uses holistic approach of management, which means treating patient as a whole, not focusing only on one symptom or a part of health.
Initial intake may take 90 minutes and includes thorough history taking, relevant physical exam, discussion of possible diagnosis and underlying causes, recommendation of lab tests if applicable, and implementing a treatment plan.
Follow up visits may take from 20 minutes to 60 minutes depending on the treatment plan. Generally, treatments include lifestyle modification, dietary management, nutritional medicine, botanical medicine, physical therapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, mindfulness counselling, and naturopathic injection therapy.
Consistency and compliance of treatment are crucial to achieve the best outcomes of the treatment. Choosing quality supplements is also important to make the treatment effective. Poor quality supplements may not work for desirable action for the patient’s conditions.
