Naturopathic practice
I often reflect upon healing philosophies. Specifically, who heals? Generally, my clients that recognize the inherent work and commitment is an essential component. Also that in order for a truly holistic model to succeed I need the whole health story. You are more than your brain, your mood, your gut, or your hormones. You are more than your symptoms. Thus, why I allow 1 1/2-2 hours for all new case reviews, and my meetings are usually 45 minutes to an hour. To truly engage in a holistic model our dialogue is a critical part to facilitating your health and well-being. Assessing your response to our offerings to your mind/body system is important. Thus the process of healing is much more extensive than seeking a natural substance to fix a disease.

All disease is a “lack of ease” or lack of homeostasis in the body. What allopathic (medical) doctors call diseases are only symptoms of a greater underlying problem. Disease is nothing more than a manifestation of our bodies trying to correct imbalances. Our body tells us early on when there is a problem, and we can either respond to these “messages” or try to suppress the symptoms the body uses to tell us there is a problem. Eventually, if the underlying problem has not been addressed, the body will begin to break down structurally.

Addressing Underlying Causes
Fatigue is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people, and understanding its root causes is crucial for effective treatment. There are many root causes; adrenal depletion, chronic stress, anxiety and depression, low immune function and auto-immune disease, hormonal imbalances due peri-menopause, pmdd, pcos, pbcs ,thyroid disease, insomnia, and sleep disorders, viruses like EBV, Lyme, post covid, medical treatments or effects of illness, lifestyle such as a diet high in sugar, processed food and alcohol, weight issues, the list is endless.
Interestingly, research also revealed a connection between gut health and chronic fatigue. Imbalances in the gut microbiome, such as an overgrowth of harmful bacteria or a lack of beneficial bacteria, were found to be associated with fatigue. This suggests that addressing gut health through dietary changes and a digestive repair plan could alleviate fatigue symptoms.

Overall, our findings challenge the conventional wisdom surrounding chronic fatigue and open up new avenues for treatment and prevention. By understanding the diverse causes of fatigue, through newer assessment tools such as microbiome testing, alongside food allergy testing and metabolic testing, we can tailor naturopathic plans to fully heal root causes. Remember, naturopathy seeks opportunities to improve your health.

A Naturopath does not concentrate on naming diseases but rather on identifying those underlying factors, which if not addressed, will eventually result in the manifestation of disease and illness. These factors can be identified and corrected long before it is even possible to make any diagnosis in the Allopathic field. Even after a diagnosis is made by a Primary Care Physician, the same concepts of healing used by a Naturopath can be equally effective, and or compliment, because once balance is restored the body has the greatest potential to heal itself!
