It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.”
A proper diagnosis is crucial to effective medicine. However the diagnosis itself tells us almost nothing about the individual in front of us. It does not inform us of a patient’s heredity, their lifestyle, past life events or mental emotional state.
Given ten individuals with the same diagnosis, ideally there should be ten specialized treatments.
Unfortunately we know that is not the case. Most people with the same diagnosis are treated with a similar generalized approach, despite the fact that their conditions have developed in completely different ways.
The underlying causes of a disease need to be resolved before healing can truly occur in the body. The present symptoms are important and must be addressed, however they are not the sole problem.
Your whole being must be re-aligned: body, mind and spirit. When this is achieved the disease can no longer reside in the body.
To accomplish this we work to
- Tonify weakened organ systems
- Improve and optimize nutritional and mineral levels
- Stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal itself
- Remove obstacles to cure
- Optimize the body’s ability to detox
- Correct structural integrity.
As a Naturopathic doctor, it is my job to look at you as an individual and see the entire person, from before birth to present day. When you truly understand the entirety of a person, you can make the necessary adjustments to bring them back to a place of health.
