Why You Should See a Naturopathic Doctor in 2017

Dr. Ashley Kowalski, HBSc, ND

Happy New Year! If you’re like most people, then you probably want this year to be brighter, happier, and healthier than the last.  In order to be happier and healthier, you need to feel good about yourself.

How can a Naturopathic Doctor help you feel good about yourself?

1)          Naturopathic Doctors can help you set New Year resolutions and keep you accountable to your goals.  Let’s face it - New Year resolutions ARE difficult to sustain!  There are both internal and external influences that tend to divert us from the path(s) we want to follow.  Naturopathic Doctors can provide you with tools to help keep you on the right track.

2)          Naturopathic Doctors take the time to listen.  We want to know what might be causing you to feel the way you do, and so we ask many questions during the initial visit.  We know it is important to be both heard and understood.

3)          Naturopathic medicine is a form of preventative medicine – that means you will learn tools to safeguard your health and tips on how to make changes with regards to nutrition and/or lifestyle in order to optimize your health.  Your well-being and quality of life is of the upmost importance.

4)          Naturopathic Doctors understand there is a powerful mind-body connection that needs to be addressed in each individual.  Naturopathic Doctors explore physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.  For example, stress is responsible for many ailments and it affects people differently – ranging from symptoms like headaches, to anxiety.   

Why should you start seeing a Naturopathic Doctor today?

Most healthcare benefit plans renew at the beginning of the New Year!  Check with your healthcare insurance plan to verify how much coverage you have for Naturopathic Medicine and book your appointment today.  Invest in your health. Cheers to a happier, healthier you in 2017!
