What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine specializes in determining and treating the underlying cause of disease. “Dis-ease” occurs when the normal physiological systems of the body are not functioning properly. Symptoms are the presentation of an underlying dysfunction. It is the job of the physician to help the body restore normal physiological functioning aiding in the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians focus on treating the individual and not the symptom! The belief in the body’s ability to heal itself through self regulating. The goal is to strengthen the body to find homeostasis in all situations. Naturopathic medicine looks at the important connection of mind, body, soul balance and looking at the entire person as a whole.
What to expect in a new patient visit
New patient visits with Naturopathic physicians are complex! Dr. Laughlin will spend 60-90minutes in your first visit going through your primary concerns, past medical history, family history, major goals in health/wellness and in depth of how you cope and deal with stress. She also goes through a full physical exam and determines further laboratory testing needed. You will leave with a catered treatment plan including specific supplements, dietary suggestions, and ways to improve your overall health!
