Frequently Asked Question
If my symptoms are managed with medication why should I seek a naturopathic doctor?
Symptoms are the body’s attempt at telling us there may be something deeper going on. While medications can take away the symptom, the cause of that symptom is still there. For example. taking acid-blockers for heartburn may help with the symptom of heartburn, but the underlying problem still exists. When medications mask symptoms over a long period of time, other symptoms begin to appear and deeper pathology can develop. Naturopathic medicine can help you discover why you developed your disease in the first place and how to prevent further progression. Most importantly, naturopathic medicine can help bring you back into a state of balance and freedom from daily medications or supplements.
