What is Preventative Medicine?
Preventative medicine is a critical aspect of naturopathic medicine. Rather than solely treating symptoms of illness, naturopathy promotes the importance of mitigating illness altogether. Some patients are genetically predisposed to certain familial medical illnesses. Whether this pre-disposition includes cancer, cardiovascular disease, or hormonal imbalances, our physicians leverage the full scope of naturopathic remedies which help our patients prevent the onset of illness. The modalities to prevent disease can include herbal and homeopathic remedies, high-quality and research supported nutritional supplements, and lifestyle & dietary counseling. Our Health for Life physicians will create individualized preventative regimens which can help mitigate both acute and chronic medical conditions.
Who Will Benefit?
Everyone! Regardless of genetics or lifestyle, there is benefit in people of all types and medical histories practicing preventative medicine. Some of the symptoms that are indicative of larger underlying lifestyle opportunities include high-blood pressure, high cholesterol, frequent sickness, hormonal imbalances (endocrine and adrenal), acne, digestive issues and food sensitivities.
