What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a holistic method of healthcare delivery that focuses on treating the whole individual. It emphasizes prevention and treatment in order for the patient to realize optimal health. While holding firm to the belief that people naturally possess the power to self-heal, naturopathic doctors use a combination of modern, traditional, and scientific methods in guiding their patients towards better long-term health. Burlington Ontario Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialists, Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D. offer a number of treatments that embrace the philosophy of naturopathic medicine, most notably Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
The Six Basic Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
As with several other types of alternative medicine, naturopathic doctors understand that no one understands their patient’s conditions and symptoms better than the patients themselves. They work as a team with patients towards a common goal of optimal health and sustained wellness.
When you work with Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D., they prefer that you think of them as advocates in your pursuit of optimal health. In fact, the principle of “doctor as teacher” is one of the basic tenets of naturopathic philosophy. Doctors in this specialty believe in empowering their patients by educating them about the importance of self-care and maintenance.
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Do No Harm: While all doctors take this oath, those who identify as a naturopathic doctor take three important steps to ensure that they help their patients rather than harming them. They use the least force necessary to diagnose and treat a health condition. When actively treating a patient, they use safe and natural substances and methods whenever possible that minimize the risk of side effects, such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. As experienced naturopathic practitioners, Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D. acknowledge and respect your body’s needs and strive to improve it without exposing it to further harm or risk of future illness.
Healing Power of Nature: Naturopathic doctors believe that all individuals are born with an ordered and intelligent sense of healing powers. Unfortunately, some people are never able to exercise them due to severe physical, cognitive, and emotional limitations from the time of birth. For those who desire to tap into their inherent self-healing powers, naturopathic doctors such as Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D. work with them and guide them to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery.
Identify and Treat the Root Cause: Traditional doctors tend to see patients as a set of symptoms that must be suppressed or a disease that must be cured. Naturopathic doctors, on the other hand, are more interested in finding and treating the underlying cause of your symptoms so you can feel better indefinitely.
Prevention: If Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D., had their preference, they would rather help you avoid ill health than treat the symptoms of it. To achieve this, he continually assesses your risk factors such as genetic predisposition to disease. When appropriate, they use interventions in partnership with you to prevent the development of symptoms or disorders.
Treat the Whole Person: When you present with symptoms of hormone imbalance, dominance or deficiency, Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D., understand there are numerous things besides normal aging that could be causing it. These typically include your unique emotional, physical, spiritual, environmental, genetic, and social factors. While traditional doctors only consider the physical, naturopathic doctors don’t consider any one of these factors to be more important than the other.
Getting Started With Bioidentical HRT
Andrea Kuzmiski, N.D. and Agnes Matacz, N.D. will start by testing an individual’s hormone levels to check for imbalances. Upon determining imbalances, the patient will start on a customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program. The doctors typically prescribe Bioidentical Hormones in the form of a cream. After the comprehensive initial assessment with a licensed naturopathic doctor, patients receive continued care appointments and wellness check-ups that are tailored to individual needs, and they also have access to acute care appointments. Every patient receives a comprehensive, individualized program designed to help establish hormonal balance, encourage disease prevention, and promote overall health and wellbeing.
