To learn more about personalized naturopathic care, reach out to the nearest office or book your appointment online today.
What is naturopathy?
Naturopathic medicine is dedicated to using natural, non-toxic therapies in a way that aligns with scientific advances to promote wellness and address or prevent illness. It treats each person as an individual and works to restore their structural, physiological, and psychological well-being.
Naturopathic practitioners specialize in natural medicine and therapeutics and are trained as general practitioners, cooperating with medical professionals and referring patients when appropriate.
 
In addition to a standard medical curriculum, naturopathic doctors may study botanical medicines, clinical nutrition, physical medicine, homeopathy, lifestyle counseling, hydrotherapy, and exercise therapy.
 
This broad base of knowledge can give you peace of mind that your unique individual challenges will not be given cookie-cutter solutions.
How can naturopathy benefit my overall well-being?
Naturopathy can often succeed where conventional treatments fall short, such as in treating:
  • Digestive disorders
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue
  • Fertility issues
  • Allergies
  • Headaches
 
You may be aware of distinct health conditions, or you may have unexplained discomfort and the sense that something is not right. Talking to your naturopathic provider is the first step in getting personalized care. Naturopathy encourages open, patient communication so the Zen Attitude Wellness team can translate your concerns, symptoms, and goals into an effective action plan with clear priorities.
 
What can I expect during a naturopathy visit?
Your naturopath session could last 5-60 minutes, depending on your needs. You may need to complete thorough paperwork beforehand to lay the groundwork and acquaint the Zen Attitude Wellness team with your medical history and concerns.
When you come in for your first visit, your provider conducts an initial interview and wants you to bring up any questions you have or fill in any gaps so they can truly understand the best ways to help.
Depending on your needs, they may recommend treatments or supportive therapies such as acupuncture, hormone replacement therapy, homeopathic injections, craniosacral therapy, or nutritional counseling. If your mental health is interfering with other aspects of your well-being, they may explore the benefits of life coaching.
Trust your gut when you feel it’s time to look for solutions that work with your natural strengths. To book a naturopathy appointment at Zen Attitude Wellness, call the office nearest you or schedule online today. Dr. Ksenia Malarkey, Dr. Jeff Kehoe and Dr. Alaina Goesling practice naturopathic medicine at Zen Attitude Wellness.
