Most individuals have experienced Traditional Medical Practices, and as many have seen a Medical Doctor some time in their lives. Today, many people are seeking Natural Remedies to compliment their health and wellness or support physical maladies. This is called Integrative Medical Services or Complimentary Medical Practices.
Naturopathic Medicine, known as Naturopathy, is a complementary form of medicine that follows a holistic approach, where practitioners view the individual as not just a patient, but also as a whole person.
Integrated Medicine focuses on healing the whole person, rather than simply treating the symptoms of illness or disease. This works very well with the afflictions of addiction as the body and mind tend to be chemically altered by long term use and determining a true evaluation of what is really happening for these individuals is really difficult and almost impossible when we treat the addiction with more drugs.
A Naturopathic Doctor and a Medical Doctor will jointly examine the individual’s current nutrition and lifestyle, and identify areas of the individuals overall health that can be improved to bring the body back into balance.
This gentler, non-toxic, common-sense technique may reduce or eliminate the need for medication in many cases or allow the individual to look at all options before a prognosis is made or the individual is forced into thinking that medications are they only option.
Working with an Integrated Medical team allows the individual to apply the best of both worlds in their recovery and also allows for maximum healing potential. Integrative Doctors educate the individual about their overall health. Patients have found amazing benefits from this increased self awareness of both mind and body.
