Naturopathy is considered a form of alternative medicine that involves a range of natural and non- invasive practices ". The ideology of naturopathy is using natural remedies to help body self-healing and restore balance. It focuses on education and prevention, to teach patients how to achieve wellness and prevent illness whenever possible. It involves many approaches, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, nutritional regimens, lifestyle counseling and exercise. Naturopathic medicine came to the United States from Germany in the 1800s. Nowadays, it is a combination of wisdom of the nature and modern science.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) at Gentle Wellness Center are trained and specialized in treating the person as a holistic unit of body, mind and spirit. The most important feature is that we aim to treat the underlying causes of the disease not just the symptoms. We provide personalized therapy that targets the least forceful and most effective approaches in order to help the body’s natural ability to restore and maintain its optimal functions. NDs may spend up to 2 hours examining you, starting from taking a detailed history until conducting lab tests. We sometimes use touch therapy such as pressure and message to produce balance in the body, which is called naturopathic manipulative therapy. NDs provide care for patients of all genders and ages.
From a research perspective, many studies have emphasized the use of naturopathy in the management of acute and chronic conditions including female reproductive diseases such as pregnancy, menopause, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. While other evidence suggests that naturopathy is used by women with these and other reproductive conditions. Although, herbal medicine has a long-standing position in naturopathic medicine practice; clinical nutritionists have recently adopted it. Moreover, research in naturopathic medicine demonstrates that it is also effective for treating other conditions like cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal pain, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, and a variety of complicated chronic diseases.
