Naturopathic Care

When you think about how many internal and external influences can affect your health and wellness, you can see the need for an approach to health that recognizes and addresses all of these separate influences in a holistic manner. This is the goal and approach of a discipline known as naturopathic health. Here at Living Well Holistic Health, our team can create a personalized wellness plan that helps you feel and function better in every aspect of your life.

Understanding Naturopathy

Traditional Naturopathy, also known by functional or integrative health, differs from traditional medical strategies in some significant ways. The standard approach to modern medicine tends to focus on alleviating the outward or surface symptoms of a disease or injury. If one particular health issue seems to produce those symptoms, the doctor might focus on fixing that issue without looking at any underlying circumstances that might have brought it about.

NATUROPATHY IS A DISTINCT SYSTEM OF HEALTH CARE THAT ENCOURAGES THE BODY'S SELF-HEALING PROCCESS THROUGH THE USE OF NATURAL THERAPIES DRAWING ON BOTH TRADITIONAL METHODS & MODERN SCIENCE.

Naturopathy views you as a whole person -- not just as an injury, illness, or symptom to be treated. This approach factors your physical, psychological, and emotional wellness into account, identifying the various triggers that might work together to undermine your health. Naturopathic doctors and practitioners then address each of those trouble points by administering several complementary therapies as part of a holistic healing program. This strategy not only alleviates the symptoms of your health challenges; it also corrects the underlying factors that produced those symptoms, improving your overall health, and enabling you to preserve that newfound wellness.

Traditional Naturopaths follow 6 Natural Principles
#1  FIRST DO NO HARM

We do not practice surgery, prescribe medications, or replace medical interventions.  However, we utilize the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic modalities like nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, water therapy, light therapy, and manual therapy.

#2  ASSESS & ADDRESS THE CAUSES

We do not diagnose or treat disease.  Instead, we look beyond the symptoms to the underlying causes.  These can include nutritional deficiency, nervous stress, and toxic exposure just to name a few.

#3  THE HEALING POWER OF NATURE

We trust in the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself.

#4  DOCTOR AS TEACHER

We educate our clients to become their own health advocates. 

#5  SUPPORT THE WHOLE PERSON

We view the human body as in integrated whole in all its physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions.

#6  WELLNESS

We focus on overall health and natural hygiene in order to foster and maintain an optimal vitality and quality of life.

What should I expect as a new client?

Wellness Consultation

Your first appointment with us will be a Wellness Consultation.  During this time we will perform a basic wellness assessment through biofeedback.  This assessment helps us understand where your primary imbalances are and what's causing them.  We will also discuss any current medication, diet, and lifestyle habits.  During this appointment we may suggest some basic supplementation or lifestyle changes.

 

New Client Forms

As a prospective client we will email you our client intake forms.  These provide us information on your health history, nutritional status, emotional well-being, and environment.  After your intake forms are reviewed your practitioner may recommend standard or specialty lab tests.

 

Naturopathic Assessment
Next, you will have a naturopathic assessment with Dr. Brandon Drabek, ND or Jennifer Cabic, BCTN to better understand the root cause of your concerns.  They will perform advanced biofeedback, in-office lab testing, and a physical assessment that is geared toward identifying your primary imbalances.  You will remain completely clothed for the physical assessment and nothing is done without your consent. 

Review of Findings & Begin Care
Once the information is collected and assessments are performed, your practitioner will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  • How can you help me?

  • How often do I need to come in?

  • What will my care cost?

 

After reviewing your health history, goals, and lab reports your practitioner will discuss recommendations and notify you if your concerns require care with other providers.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. Our goal is for you to achieve good mental, physical, & spiritual wellbeing through a healthy diet that includes supplementation, fun sweaty activity, meditation, physical therapy, therapeutic massage, & counseling.  If you desire, our our practitioners will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.
