Dr. Dave decided to pursue Naturopathic Medicine because he was tired of the of the way traditional western medicine was structured. Western medicine always seem to treat people’s symptoms rather than targeting the root of the problem. Naturopathic Medicine helps give the body the ability to heal itself through things such as Botanical and/or Nutraceuticals. The best analogy to explain this is, “You are walking around when you notice a rock in your shoe that begins to cause foot pain. You can take Advil and wait, which is often recommended for general musculoskeletal pain, which may alleviate some of the symptoms, but you could also simply take off your shoe and dump the rock out, and alleviate all of the symptoms, without spending any money on pharmaceuticals. Unfortunately, our medical system typically advocates for the former scenario and not the latter.” Dr. Dave believes he can change this phenomena with the help of Naturopathic Medicine.
The goal of Naturopathic Medicine is to treat the whole person means (mind, body, and spirit). It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness not just stop the symptoms.
Is to the change America’s idea of health that the foundation of health can be restored using natural solutions. The pharmaceutical companies have been trying to convince otherwise healthy patients that they need to be medicated.
