Why Naturopathic Medicine?

·         For a Doctor who listens to you,

·         For a Doctor who works to understand the root cause of your illness,

·         For a Doctor who carefully explains your condition and treatments to you,

·         For a Doctor who aims to prevent illness rather than simply treat symptoms,

·         For a Doctor who teaches you how food, nutrition, and how your lifestyle affect your

·         health

 

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

 Naturopathic doctors are expertly trained in natural and integrative medicine. A Doctorate

in Naturopathic medicine is obtained at a four-year medical school, focusing on both

classroom and clinical training. Naturopathic doctors are required to pass a series of Board

exams in order to become licensed doctors. While trained to diagnose and treat disease in

the same manner as conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors often choose to treat

the patient and disease differently. First, they identify and treat the root cause of a

problem, rather than simply treat symptoms. When practicing naturopathy, a doctor treats

the patient as a whole, considering all aspects that may contribute to illness or prevent

healing. Naturopathic doctors educate and empower their patients to prevent disease

through healthy lifestyle choices and natural interventions. Naturopathic treatment can

work alone or together with other approaches. While conventional medical tools involve

mostly drugs and surgery, naturopathic doctors are trained in a variety of therapeutic

tools: herbal medicines, supplements, vitamins, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, counseling, acupuncture, pharmacology, and physical medicine.

 

The 6 Basic Tenets of Naturopathic Medicine:

1. The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae): Naturopathic medicine

values the self-healing power of the human body. Naturopathic doctors work to

promote the self-healing process, as well as remove any obstacles to healing.

 

2. Identify and Treat the Cause or Causes (Tolle Causam): Naturopathic doctors work

to find the root cause of the illness, not just treat the symptoms. Naturopathic

doctors recognize that symptoms are the body’s way of communicating its needs.

 

3. First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere): Naturopathic doctors use methods and

substances that minimize the risk of harm.

 

4. Doctor as Teacher (Docere): Naturopathic doctors educate their patients so that

they can make decisions to maintain health and prevent disease. They also

recognize and value the importance of the doctor-patient relationship.

 

5. Treat the Whole Person (Tolle Totum): Naturopathic doctors treat all aspects of a

patient, including physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and

other factors.

 

6. Prevention (Prevenir): Naturopathic doctors emphasize the prevention of disease by

assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making

appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients.

Dr. Chan is an amazing doctor! A true treasure, and I am so glad that I have found her! She is very kind, compassionate and takes time with her patients. I trust her, and believe she has a sovereign knowledge in her field. Dr. Chan is the first one to ever really help give me advice on a lifelong problem. Looking more at the root cause rather than the symptom. I would highly recommend her. And, encourage people who have chronic illnesses, allergies or hard to diagnose symptoms to see her!

Like a lot of people I had become frustrated with traditional western medicine. I knew that I had the potential to feel healthy but also new that something was just not right. After seeing Dr. DiBacco she got right into my medical history, lifestyle and my concerns about my health. Soon after our first few meetings she discovered food allergies and stress levels were my biggest issues that were holding me back from feeling great!

My Naturopathic doctor is amazing.  I never felt so incredibly hopeful after leaving a health appointment in my life.  It’s not just about using a natural approach to wellness, it’s using a proactive and logical one.
