Naturopathic services provide patients access to proven natural and traditional healing methods under the care of a licensed primary care physician (DC or MD who has completed additional training in the modalities listed). If you and your doctor agree, one or more of these natural healing methods may form a part of your treatment plan.
Your DC or MD clinician may incorporate one or more of the following modalities to assist you in reaching your highest degree of health and wellness. The following methods are safe, gentle and based in the healing power of nature:
The first appointment is usually 1 to 2 hours long. You will be asked numerous questions on all aspects of your health including mental, emotional and physical habits and symptoms. These questions are asked so that your physician can make an accurate diagnosis and prepare an individualized plan for care. Follow-up appointments can last 30 to 60 minutes depending on services required. If at any time your case requires additional care beyond what our clinic can provide, your physician will discuss this with you and provide a referral.
At our Whole Health Center in Lombard, you can request an appointment with a primary care physician (DC or MD) who is trained in naturopathic services. If you are a current patient interested in trying naturopathic services, you can ask your current NUHS clinician about integrating naturopathic services into your treatment plan.
