I do believe there is a time and a place for medical intervention. I want to help you understand when you should choose an MD over going to a natural health practitioner. When your health is in a trauma situation (ie heart attack, stroke, broken bone, organ failure or any other catastrophic condition) is when our MD's are at their best. We have the best doctors in the world when its a trauma health situation. A natural health practitioner won't be able to help someone in this situation.
When you are dealing with a chronic health situation such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol problems, thyroid disease, constipation, sleeping disorders, digestive disorders, swelling, and many many more lables. This is when you should choose to see a natural health practitioner. A Naturopath would be more concerned with a whole body approach to health, than just dealing with the symptom. If you want to discover how you can be healthier than you ever believed you could, then schedule an appt with a natural health consultant and allow him/her to help you make lifestyle changes and educate you on the many different factors that are affecting your health while at the same time eliminating the symptoms that are bringing you down.
