Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and treating illness. Focusing on prevention, and using gentle non-invasive natural treatments, Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) support and stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal. In the last twenty years, an increasing body of medical research supports the wisdom of Naturopathic treatment, which can complement conventional medical treatment or be used effectively on its own. Naturopathic medicine offers safe and effective treatments for all types of health problems. From infancy to old age, naturopathic medicine can be integrated into everyone’s healthcare.
The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply suppressing the symptoms. Each person’s unique physical, mental and emotional state is considered when in developing a personalized health care plan.
Your first appointment is an in depth assessment of all the factors impacting your health. To allow enough time to understand all of your healthcare needs, 60 minutes is set aside for this initial visit. Your ND will take a detailed patient history, a physical exam will be performed and laboratory tests may be recommended.
Prior to your first appointment, please take the time to complete our new patient forms. These forms help us better understand your current and past health status and are very important to the success of your healthcare plan.
At your second visit, a personalized treatment plan will be presented with recommendations to help you achieve your healthcare goals. Subsequent visits are scheduled periodically to assess progress, make further recommendations and attend to any new issues. If you do become ill, or if any other health issues suddenly arise (such as bladder infections, colds or flu) you can now easily access Dr. Baron's office for safe and effective treatment.
Check with your extended healthcare plan provider to determine if you are covered for Naturopathic Care.
