The Naturopathic Approach – No Duct Tape Required!

It’s Tuesday of Naturopathic Medicine Week, and we are so excited to share even more natural health information with you!

The Naturopathic Approach to Health might be a little different than your previous healthcare experiences. You may even find yourself wondering, how do Naturopathic Doctors treat most health problems without drugs?

As an example, consider your car. If the “Service Engine” warning light starts flashing on your car you have 3 options:

1. Ignore it and hope it corrects itself. (but that light gets annoying after a while)

2. Cover it with duct tape so you don’t see it.

3. Bring your car to a mechanic to run a diagnostic test to find the cause of the problem and have it fixed.

With your car, you know the problem will only get worse if you don’t get it fixed soon. It may even cause more serious problems down the road, so you know the trip to the mechanic is the only sensible option.

Your body is the same way. When you start feeling ill, low energy, pain or other symptoms, that is your body’s “service engine” light telling you it’s time to see your doctor to determine the cause of the problem and fix it.

You also know that fueling your car with the proper type of gasoline prevents damage and future mechanical problems. In much the same way, fueling your body with proper nutrition prevents damage and future health problems.

Your health is much more important and valuable than any car. Naturopathic Medicine eliminates the need for “duct tape” and helps you live a healthy, energy filled life naturally.

As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of gain.”
