Ten Reasons to See a Naturopathic Doctor

Victoria has a fantastic new online magazine called Victoria Mom.  It’s a great website and sister Facebook page with tonnes of recipes, community connections and articles from various health practitioners and other local experts and mom bloggers.
We recently did a mini interview and they have done a great article with the Top 10 reasons to see a Naturopathic Physician. 

Ten Reasons to See a Naturopathic Doctor

You’ve been to your doctor and have been given a clean bill of health. As far as they can tell, there is nothing “wrong” medically – but you don’t feel right – maybe you’re run down, generally fatigued, have a recurring headache that just won’t quit. You can’t place your finger on it, but you know you can feel better, you just don’t know how to get there on your own.
Dr. Kellie Ferguson of Koru Natural Health Centre said it best:
‘The absolute top reason people come in is that they plain don’t feel well.  
They have often been to their GP, who has done a really thorough job testing and ruling out scary causes and they have been pronounced “all fine”, but they still don’t feel fine.   So they come in and we look a little broader, not just for disease, but for the aspects or systems that aren’t working at their best.  
Maybe we take away things that are preventing them from feeling fantastic, like dealing with stress management differently or modifying diet to avoid 18 cups of coffee, or we add things that may be lacking or necessary to help the body to work more effectively, like digestive enzymes or omega 3 oils.  Or we use herbal or other therapies to restore or heal systems like milk thistle for liver function. (One instructor called this the 3 “r”  Remove, Replenish or Restore).’
With help from Dr. Ferguson we’ve put together a list of the top 10 reasons to see a Naturopathic Physician. If you’ve been feeling ‘off’ for a while, maybe this list will compel you to book a consultation!
1. Focus on the cause not the symptoms –  A mantra of Naturopathic Medicine is seeking the root of why a person feels unwell, not just treating the symptoms. As Dr. Ferguson says: “Many are looking for ways to address reason they are unwell, so that they can try to get things like reflux or eczema under control without having to constantly rely on medications to manage the symptoms.” For example, my best friend struggled with acne her whole life, and only in adulthood was she able to finally narrow the cause down to gluten intolerance. No gluten, no problems! “Many of us {Naturopathic Doctors} also have prescriptive rights and so we can help patients if they do need conventional medications even if it’s just for a short time while they work on cause of the conditions” notes Dr. Ferguson.
