“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absences of disease or infirmity.” – World Health Organization, c. 1948
Finding a naturopathic physician in Seattle who is as committed to your health as you are is key to reaching your healthcare goals. A naturopathic physician can help you along the path to wellness, treating the root causes of disease, without being encumbered by pharmaceuticals and long series of conventional therapies riddled with poor outcomes and side effects.
Naturopathic physicians look at a wide range of factors that affect health, such as:
- Family history
The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is that health, not illness, is our natural state of being, and nature is the guiding force in optimal health. Naturopathic physicians believe that, when balanced, our bodies is a self-healing entity which has the ability to self-correct most conditions of disease. Treatment modalities of naturopathic medicine involve lifestyle changes, supplements, the use of herbs and supplements, and dietary changes. By learning more about you and your family history, a plan for health with a key focus on prevention is created.
When Should You Visit with a Naturopathic Physician?
Ideally you should make your first visit when you feel you are in a state of wellness so that a risk assessment can be done and a plan of prevention can be implemented. However, a naturopathic physician can easily assist you with existing conditions, such as:
- Heart disease
- Autoimmune diseases
