Naturopathic & Functional Medicine in Portland OR is a combination of holistic medicine and traditional medicine. It focuses on treating the whole person rather than just the symptoms.
Like functional medicine, naturopathy focuses on providing patient-centered care by addressing the root cause of disease rather than just treating the symptoms that the body manifests. Our specialist in Naturopathic & Functional Medicine in Portland OR seeks to get to the core of what ails a patient, using natural methods to do so. For example, prescribing dietary changes or nutritional supplements to treat a condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Naturopathic & Functional Medicine in Portland OR takes a holistic approach when it comes to treatment. We might do as much as prescribe medication as necessary to help treat the condition, but we will also look for the root of the problem and work to treat that cause through lifestyle modifications and other holistic treatments.
The philosophy behind Naturopathic & Functional Medicine in Portland OR is that healing comes from within. The body has an innate ability to heal itself when given the proper nutrition and lifestyle to encourage that healing process. The role of the physician is to facilitate that process by encouraging good health through diet and lifestyle changes.
This is a powerful approach to medicine as it helps patients heal from the inside out rather than only focusing on the symptoms that they experience. By getting to the root of the issue, patients are able to not only become healthier but also to live their best lives—in terms of both physical and emotional health.
