Naturopathic Care Q & A

What is naturopathic care?

Naturopathic care is a type of medical practice that focuses on prevention and self-healing. Dr. Fandel provides patient-focused, naturopathic care to diagnose, prevent, and treat illnesses and chronic disease by optimizing your health and stimulating your body’s inherent ability to self-heal.

Naturopathic care aims to identify the underlying causes of poor health and actively address them. Naturopathic medicine also operates in a therapeutic order, which includes:

  • Remove obstacles to health
  • Stimulate self-healing mechanisms
  • Strengthen weakened systems
  • Correct structural integrity
  • Use natural substances to restore and regenerate
  • Use pharmacologic substances to halt progressive disease
  • Use high force, invasive modalities

What this means to you is that Dr. Fandel helps you optimize your health and lower your risk of disease with natural and complementary therapies. However, if necessary, she prescribes or recommends conventional medicine.

For example, if you have cancer, she can help you enhance your health with dietary changes, nutritional supplements, and natural therapies, which help keep you strong and able to get through more invasive treatments like chemotherapy.

How can naturopathic care help me?

Dr. Fandel has an intense focus on disease prevention and health optimization. She considers your overall health instead of only looking at your symptoms. For example, if you have gastrointestinal problems, she runs tests to figure out why and offers natural treatments to heal the underlying condition instead of prescribing medicine to relieve your symptoms.

As a result of this holistic approach to medicine, your overall health improves, and your risk of chronic health issues like high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes decreases.

What is included in naturopathic care?

Dr. Fandel spends more time with you than a conventional doctor. Your first appointment could take up to two hours as she takes time to develop a complete understanding of your overall health and lifestyle. Then, she creates a wellness program tailored to address your needs, which may include:

  • Dietary changes
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Homeopathic and herbal supplements
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Stress management
  • Pain management
  • Sexual health treatments

Dr. Fandel also uses extensive testing to assess your hormonal needs and identify other underlying imbalances or issues that can impact your overall health.
