What to expect in a Naturpathic Consultation

Most people are unsure of what to expect in a consultation with a Naturopathic Doctor and how it may differ from a visit with a medical doctor.  Medical doctors typically focus on defining and treating the symptoms of a disease or illness.  The length of the visit is typically brief, as short as a few minutes in some cases, and is concluded with a drug prescription.  This is in contrast to Naturopaths, who have longer visits and take the time to explore the underlying cause to suffering on a deeper more holistic level.  The Naturopathic model focusses on the imbalance in the body and using natural and non-invasive approaches to assist the body to heal itself.  Be prepared to share your story with someone who will listen compassionately to understand your suffering and work with you to restore your health naturally .
