Your health concerns
Naturopathic doctors are trained to work with virtually all acute and chronic conditions. Treatment may stand alone or be adjunctive to therapies outlined by other healthcare professionals, including your medical doctor, chiropractor, and massage therapist. The goal is to treat the patient, not simply the symptoms, and optimize health.
Your consultation and assessment
Your initial visit with the ND at Evolve is an hour and a half and includes a thorough health history with a basic physical exam and urinalysis. The information that you provide during this visit, along with the results of any laboratory or diagnostic testing, is used to create a personalized treatment plan. This plan is then explained in detail to you during your second visit. Your ND may provide treatment on your first visit depending on your case and the length of subsequent visits will vary with your individual needs.
Your treatment plan
Implementing your treatment plan both in and out of the office is important to us. We will work with you to be sure that you understand the “how” and the “why” of the therapies offered to help you achieve optimal health.
Typically you will see your ND more frequently at the beginning of a treatment plan. This helps us to ensure that you’re on the right track, and allows us to monitor progress, adjusting your plan according to your response to treatment.
Naturopathic doctors use a unique combination of natural healing techniques to address your specific circumstances. Your individualized treatment plan may include a combination of the following:
- Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Botanical Medicine
- Clinical Nutrition
- Lifestyle Counseling
- Microcurrent / TENS
- Stress Management
