I have some health issues that affect my quality of life yet I’ve had numerous medical tests done and they come back “normal”. How can a Naturopathic Doctor help?
Most medical conditions don’t happen overnight. There is often a period of dysfunction – months, years, or decades – where symptoms can impinge on your quality of life but your body has been able to compensate and a recognizable disease hasn’t surfaced.
If this is the case your medical tests may come back as “normal” or close to it. But that doesn’t mean you need to wait to do something! The pesky symptoms of dysfunction such as fatigue, aches, pains, gas, bloating, generic allergies, weight gain, PMS, headaches, poor sleep – can respond well to lifestyle medicine.
Just like it’s easier to put out smoldering coals than a raging fire, it’s preferable to be reversing dysfunction than waiting to treat the disease.
