Naturopathic Medicine - Fast Facts
Join Wana and Dr. Thalia Farshchian to learn the FAQ on Naturopathic Medicine.
What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is geared towards prevention of disease. If one is beyond prevention, the goal is to restore balance physiologically and biochemically
How is standard medicine different from naturopathic medicine?
If you are comparing a naturopathic “tool box” to a conventional medicine “tool box” specifically, the naturopathic tool box requires the patient to be more involved in their healing process as it requires diet change, habit change, supplements to organize and possibly more.
A conventional tool box may be simpler and more rinse, lather, repeat.
How does Naturopathic medicine treat complex conditions and its co-infections?
It first starts with a lot of research. A Naturopath looks into diseases and infections researching an array of symptoms, such chronic fatigue symptoms, sinus issues, allergies, and hormonal swings. Then they address the layers and incorporate tools, such as herbal healing options, in a particular order.
Why choose this holistic approach?
When looking at a building that is deteriorating, standard medicine often offers the scaffolding and support necessary to keep the building standing. In this same situation, Naturopathic medicine goes inside to find out what caused the building to deteriorate and fix the core issues. Both are essential to long-term success, but you have to understand what each is able to offer you and set your expectations accordingly.
“My job is to take the seemingly unrelated symptoms your body is using to communicate bits of the story and connect them into a full storyline. It truly requires teamwork for dreamwork, but the outcome is a deeper understanding that shines on a path of healing.”- Dr. Thalia Farshchian
