How does Naturopathic Medicine work?
The healing power of nature
Naturopathic physicians seek to find and remove obstacles to healing, and to facilitate recovery and revitalization.
Treating the causes of illness
Rather than suppressing symptoms.
Identifying stressors and risk factors as well as heredity and disease susceptibility, to aid in avoiding future illness.
Taking care to “First Do No Harm”
Using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat; methods and substances with the least risk of harmful side effects; avoiding when possible the suppression of symptoms; and respecting the individual’s healing process.
Treating the whole person
Taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, genetic and environmental factors.
Is Naturopathic Medicine Right For Me?
Dr. Threlkel offers naturopathic medicine, combining the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes prevention and self-care for optimal health; and when a patient already has a health condition employs both modern and traditional therapeutics including laboratory testing, herbs and nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, Bio-identical and natural hormone therapies and detoxification, with a preference for effective, natural approaches.
