How Can Visiting a Naturopathic Doctor Help Me?

There are many types of doctors available to visit when you are sick or injured. This makes deciding who to visit a challenge, to say the least. In this short guide, Dr. Carol, Dr. Richard, and our team at Loechinger Clinic – serving the Dayton, OH area – share why a naturopathic doctor is a good choice.

What Is a Naturopathic Doctor?

Though there seems to be some confusion, a naturopathic doctor or NMD is one who does attend medical school for training and certification. They specialize in determining the root cause or causes – the reason for your illness or injury – and aim to correct them as opposed to simply treating the symptoms.

Naturopathic doctors seek to find roadblocks to optimal health, which can include but are not limited to stress and diet. After identifying these roadblocks, treatment methods are utilized to remove them, stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and empower the immune system.

Treatment methods greatly vary depending on the issues at play. They can include the following and more:

The goal is to first use natural, non-invasive techniques, progressing only as necessary. Naturopathic doctors will also work with other members of your healthcare team to ensure optimal results.

What Types of Conditions Can I Visit a Naturopathic Doctor For?

NDs are primary care providers, so you can schedule an appointment for any issue you face. Some common ones treated by NDs include:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Diabetes
  • Headaches
  • Weight issues
  • Chronic pain
  • Allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • ADHD
  • Mental health conditions
  • Digestive issues

Remember that NDs want to ensure that you reach and sustain optimal health. They are the first line of defense for any issue. Many times, they are the only line you need. When you need additional care from a specialist, your ND will be more than happy to refer you and work with that specialist.
