Whole food nutrition is the best medicine and the first area that naturopathic practices focus on. The old adage "you are what you eat" has become "you are what you can absorb." Eating foods that do not agree with your body or eating a diet of processed foods can have numerous implications physically and mentally. Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with food and nutritional support than they can by other methods, with fewer complications and side effects. Hippocrates was the first to say "Let food be thy medicine, medicine be thy food".
Everyone is exposed to greater quantities of chemicals in the environment, food, and water supply. These chemicals can interact synergistically to elevate their negative effects. There are effective measures and steps for immune restoration.
Plant substances are powerful medicines and the use of botanical medicines can address a variety of disorders concurrently. When properly implemented, botanical medicine can effectively be applied with minimal likelihood of side effects.
Homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of “like cures like.” Empirical observation indicates that it works on a subtle, yet powerful, energetic level, supporting an individual’s constitution. Like a tuning fork for the body, the correct homeopathic remedy can heal on a physical, mental, and emotional level.
Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness. Counseling, nutritional balancing, stress management, and other therapies are used to help patients heal psychologically.
Individual state licensure and scope of practice dictates methods of therapeutic manipulation, in-office minor surgeries, and acupuncture. However, the basic philosophies, knowledge, and teaching can be utilized to give the best insight of when to refer out.
