CONCIERGE NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE | SAN DIEGO
Naturopathic Medicine has been practiced for over 100 years and is growing in popularity in individuals that are looking to optimize their health holistically. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on prevention and optimizing the patient’s own inherent self-healing processes to fight disease. Naturopathic Medical Doctors graduate from 4-year accredited Naturopathic Medical programs and are licensed to practice Naturopathic Medicine after passing the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX). Naturopathic Medicine uses many modalities, including botanical medicine (herbs), physical medicine (hands-on), homeopathic medicine (energetic), and scientifically-researched modalities (supplements, pharmaceuticals, and IV vitamin therapy). The key principles of Naturopathic Medicine are the prevention of disease, finding the root cause of disease, educating the patient, treating the whole person, doing no harm, and providing the body with the essential tools to cure disease – a holistic approach!

COMMON CAUSES OF INDIVIDUALS
GOING TO THE DOCTORS OFFICE
Risk factors include but are not limited to:
- High blood pressure
- Tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke
- Lack of adequate exercise and mobility
- Unbalanced diets that undervalue clean foods like vegetables and fruits and overly value foods high in sodium, saturated fats, and unhealthy meats in large quantities
- Undiagnosed allergies to food or environmental factors
- Environmental factors like toxin exposure
- Treating the symptoms without identifying the cause of the problem whether it is nutritional, environmental, hereditary, or even structural.
Many Americans have more than one of the major risk factors that can lead to the most common chronic illnesses. Reducing these risk factors alone can often improve one’s quality of life dramatically. Using Naturopathic Medicine to bring the body back into harmony through a nutritional, physical, environmental and emotional balance approach will further improve the health of a patient.
Common causes or risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, and obesity are similar and overlap — which shows that these risk factors should be avoided as they can lead to not one, but multiple illnesses.
