For patients diagnosed with neurological and brain health concerns, naturopathic medicine should be an integral part of a supportive treatment plan. The goal of any treatment is to stop the progression of the disease. Naturopathic medicine accomplishes this important task by supporting all body systems, functions and processes. Intervening at an early stage of any neurological disease or imbalance offers the best possibility for significantly impacting progression.
Our bodies are composed of water, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Imbalances in these substances can affect every aspect of our health and can lead to consequences that speed the disease process. For each specific neurological condition, advances in scientific research and an awareness of all causative factors affecting the development of the disease are incorporated into an individualized treatment and management plan.
Our Naturopathic Doctors conduct a detailed health history, physical exam, laboratory and diagnostic test work up to identify underlying imbalances and barriers to health. Then, a comprehensive treatment plan will be established, reviewed, and monitored.
