Naturopathy Q & A

What is naturopathy?

Naturopathy is an approach to medicine built around the importance of helping your body heal naturally, using prevention whenever possible.

Conventional approaches to medicine tend to focus on alleviating symptoms in patients who have complex or chronic conditions using medications. While drugs can form an essential part of your treatment plan, they often conceal your symptoms rather than solving them.

Naturopathy recognizes the power your body possesses to heal and regenerate itself and how identifying the root causes of your health problems can help this ability. 

What might be the root cause of my condition?

There are a number of key influences on your health, starting with genetics. Many predispositions or tendencies to develop certain conditions are ones you inherit from your parents.

Although you can’t change your genes, it can help to know as much as possible about your family history. Genetic testing can also highlight any potential problems that could develop because of your genes, so you can undergo any relevant screening exams.

What you eat and drink is also critical to good health. Some of the most serious health conditions affecting people of all ages in the US today are related to diet, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Some cancers

By eating a nutritious diet, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing these diseases and other health problems.

Other influences on your health include environmental factors such as your exposure to pollution, the levels of stress you're under, how much exercise you get, and any bad habits like smoking, or drinking excessive quantities of alcohol.

Naturopathy can help you manage and rebalance these factors so you avoid health problems.

What treatments are used in naturopathy?

When you need treatment for a health problem, your provider at PANDA Neurology & Atlanta Headache Specialists follows naturopathic medicine protocols that aim to maximize healing while minimizing risk.

The first stage of treatment is to boost the body’s ability to heal itself. Your treatments could include:

  • Clinical nutrition
  • Botanical medicines
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Lifestyle interventions
  • Dietary changes
  • Hormone supplementation
  • Nutritional supplementation

In some cases, physical therapies are a valuable addition, for example massage therapy, chiropractic manipulation, or craniosacral therapy.

How does conventional medicine fit with naturopathy?

Naturopathy aims to restore your health using the most natural methods available but doesn’t exclude conventional medicine. If you have a condition that needs specialized treatment, your provider at PANDA Neurology & Atlanta Headache Specialists can recommend whichever conventional therapy is most appropriate.
