Optimize patient outcomes with naturopathy in your Integrative Medicine practice
Integration of allopathic and naturopathic paradigms is revolutionizing health and healing in a medical practice.This session will address utilizing providers such as Naturopaths, nutritionists, psychologists, Dieticians and Physical Therapists in medical practice to provide increased patient care and education, expertise, and economic viability for the practice.
Integrative doctors burn out with patient seeking a functional approach to chronic ill-health. Doctors are observing their patient population becoming more anxious, stressed, lethargic, emotionally distressed, obese, as well plagued by a myriad of chronic disorders such as pain syndromes, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, adult ADD, and a plethora of gastrointestinal disorders. Doctors particularly in general practice, are trained and practice in boiler plate protocols primarily due to medical insurances, and mandates of their professional body. Yet the doctor of our former years before big pharma revolution, embraced holistic modalities which we now identify as allied or complimentary health. The Wester Doctor has many exquisite pathophysiological strategies to combat disease but is devoid of synergistically interfacing with medicine of the past.
An Integrative Medical practise is ideally placed to blend pharmacological prophylaxis to mitigate physiological morbidities with restoring the body’s magnificent homeostasis. The resurgent blend is an innovative medical paradigm involving the naturopath and doctor to thoroughly heal the many dimensions of the patient’s pathogenesis. Naturopaths become facilitators of a patients upstream comorbidities with natural medicine, be it herbs, vitamins, minerals or homoeopathics. Naturopaths are trained to ameliorate a patient’s pathogenesis prior to it manifesting into some kind of chronic condition like autoimmune disease, CFS or cardiovascular event.
