There’s a saying that Naturopathic Doctors don’t treat diseases,
we treat people.
A disease is generally comprised of a constellation of signs and symptoms, messages that one’s system is out of balance. For most people, symptoms are troubling and uncomfortable, and we generally want them to resolve as quickly as possible. However, I want to do more than address your symptoms. I want to help you get to the root of your health concerns, so that you can thrive.
Over-focusing on symptoms and diagnoses can be lead us astray, because our real aim is to restore health and vitality. Nonetheless, here is a list of common conditions or symptoms that motivate people to seek naturopathic support. This is not an exhaustive list of ‘conditions treated,’ but includes many of the conditions that I commonly see and/or have expertise addressing.
