I began Mentor Naturopathic Services with the goal of providing personalized consultation services to any person seeking safe,natural,alternative care. Naturopathic Medicine is comprehensive and personalized. It takes into consideration the entire person,their medical,family and psycho-social history, as well as their genetic background. Naturopathic Medicine can be “blended” with western medicine as a complimentary or adjunct therapy with a focus on lifestyle and /or nutritional changes to target or prevent illness and disease.
Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is a system of medicine based on the healing power of nature. Naturopathy is a holistic system, meaning that Naturopaths strive to find the cause of disease by understanding the body, mind, and spirit of the person.
There are two areas of focus in naturopathy: one is supporting the body’s own healing abilities, and the other is empowering people to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health. While naturopathic doctors assist with both short bouts of illness such as colds and flu, and chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, their emphasis is on preventing disease and educating their clients.
Q: What should I expect from my first conversation with a naturopathic doctor?
A: You should expect a lengthy private dialogue with your practitioner. Listening to and understanding the individual client is the fundamental basis of naturopathic medicine. This approach allows for individualized treatment, rather than a cookie-cutter approach to care.
Q: How will a naturopathic doctor treat (INSERT CONDITION HERE)? Naturopathic doctors do not treat conditions, they evaluate people. For example, a naturopathic doctor will not prescribe a drug to treat gastric reflux. They will help analyze diet choices and eating patterns, suggest means to normalize acid production, and/or discuss natural ways to soothe esophageal irritation.
A consulation with a Naturopath typically lasts 45 to 60 minutes .This allows enough time to work through any questions or concerns together.
Q: Is there a difference between a “naturopath” and a “naturopathic doctor”?
A: Yes, although the differences can be confusing. The term “Naturopathic Doctor” can only be used by licensed and board certified medical practitioners who have attended an approved naturopathic medical school and practice in a licensed state. In an unlicensed state, both terms can be used; The State of Ohio does not license Naturopaths. Some of these practitioners may have an extensive background of information, and years of experience. A visit to a naturopathic doctor is like a tune up is for your car – just like scheduled maintenance keeps the tow truck away, regular visits to your Naturopath can keep you healthy and out of your medical doctor’s office.
