If you’re frustrated with your primary care doctor and interested in seeking other options for your healthcare needs, you might wonder whether an alternative medicine practitioner is right for you. Naturopathic doctors offer patients well-visits such as physicals and sick visits. A naturopathic doctor or ND holds a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree earned through post-secondary education and hands-on clinical training. An ND must also earn a license to practice. Learn some of the benefits of choosing this kind of doctor.
Get a Holistic Approach to Your Healthcare
An alternative doctor considers you as a whole person and not just your symptoms. For example, instead of looking only at physical causes for stomach aches or back pain, your alternative doctor may ask questions about your mental and emotional state, as mental illnesses such as anxiety may cause physical pain.
Natural Therapies Are a First Choice, Not a Last Resort
Naturopathic doctors first seek ways to help you feel better that are minimally invasive and require the smallest possible pharmaceutical solution. Patients may receive trigger point therapy, biofeedback and IV therapy as well as craniosacral therapy and joint manipulation before more intensive measures are explored.
Enjoy Life-Long Care
NDs welcome patients of all ages, including children and adults, so you can have continuity of care. They are qualified to administer routine vaccinations where appropriate, physicals for school or work, and prescribe medication if that’s what’s best for you, such as when an antibiotic may be needed to clear an infection.
