WASHINGTON, June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- Patients seeking a doctor who will boost their body's natural healing ability and apply the least invasive diagnostics and therapies should consider a licensed naturopathic doctor. This is according to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians
Here are the six reasons:
"Certain chronic health conditions that have symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, or gastrointestinal distress can be difficult to diagnose and treat, and can benefit from a holistic approach," said Michelle Simon, PhD, ND. "Naturopathic doctors use diagnostic tools common in conventional medicine, such as detailed health, disease, and prescription drug histories, physical exams, and targeted laboratory testing and imaging. They also consider diet history, lifestyle habits and choices, exercise history, and social/emotional factors to assess patients' needs. These approaches can open doors to new treatment pathways and options."
