Naturopathic medicine is a system of health care that has been around for hundreds of years. It has grown and changed over time integrating aspects from conventional, holistic and alternative fields of medicine, including evidence-based therapies.
This form of health-care strives to take into consideration the whole person, not just their symptoms. It acknowledges that to be truly healthy, the underlying cause of disease must be removed. It also supports the body’s innate drive to be healthy.
Therefore, to improve health Dr. Davidson, a naturopathic doctor, will take a detailed client history along with ordering laboratory testing, imaging and perform physical exams as necessary. The doctor will use this information and determine which therapies will be most effective in reversing or modifying disease progression. She will also consider therapies that will boost one’s natural immune system.
