VIDEO: What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine strives to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses. In this video, Dr. Mark Stengler and Dr. Angela Stengler share their own personal reasons for getting into naturopathic medicine instead of the conventional medicine route.
Naturopathic doctors have additional training on top of conventional training and education; the additional focus is on natural therapies to treat root causes of why a patient is sick (or prone to being sick) instead of just addressing single symptoms. It’s a much more comprehensive approach to preventing and treating disease.
We know through studies — and just common sense — a lot of conditions people have are related to their diet, lifestyle, how they handle stress, environmental toxins they are exposed to, etc. Natural medicine deals with these things very effectively. Naturopathic physicians remove obstacles to healing and recovery, which helps the body’s self-healing process.
