What can naturopathic medicine do for you?
Naturopathic medicine blends traditional non-toxic therapies with modern scientific research to create a holistic, patient-centered model of health care that is both effective and safe. Naturopathic medicine is for everyone, at any stage in the lifespan. It is individualized to address each person’s unique needs and emphasis is place on prevention and self-care.
It is a historical system of medicine that concentrates on whole-patient wellness. The medicine used is specifically tailored to each individual patient and emphasis is placed on prevention and self-care.
Naturopathic physicians are extensively trained in finding and treating the root cause of illness; they aim to help patients make lifestyle choices that promote health and provide lasting cures rather than suppressing symptoms while the disease process continues.
Dr. Amy Rolfsen will use a variety of tools in order to tap into the innate healing power of the body and promote balance; these include clinical nutrition, supplements, detoxification, herbal medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, chelation, IV nutrients, and bio-identical hormones. The goal is to re-establish balance on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels while teaching you how to maintain life-long balance and health.
Typical conditions that naturopathic doctors treat are digestive disorders, immune imbalances, allergies, food and chemical sensitivities, skin conditions, depression, anxiety, hormone disturbance, obesity, stress, fatigue, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and several others.
Naturopathic doctors are required to complete an undergraduate degree in pre-medical studies before graduating from a four year program at an accredited naturopathic medical school.
Naturopathic physicians are trained as primary care providers; this allows them to run laboratory tests, perform physical exams, diagnose, and treat all health conditions.
