Naturopathic medicine uses a collection of natural methods to treat your skin and body. The foundation of this medicine is to look at your body holistically so your naturopathic doctor can find the real root cause of your health dysfunctions. For instance, when treating skin conditions like Acne, Rosacea, and Eczema, Dr. Kristen Ma, ND often treats unexpected areas such as your hormonal system, blood, digestion or emotional health for real, long-term change.
Naturopathic sessions may include acupuncture, herbal medicine and supplements, dietary consultation, and changes to your lifestyle and habits. Plans are based on findings from physical assessments and can involve specified laboratory tests.
Naturopathic medicine can always be used in conjunction with conventional, allopathic medicine combining the best strategies for your wellness goals. Many extended insurance and health benefit plans cover naturopathic medicine and receipts for this are always provided.
