A key principle of Naturopathic Medicine is “treat the cause, not the symptom”. Family lifestyle habits can cause obvious health problems in one family member, while silently affecting the health of others. It is common in clinical practice to hear that family members who adopt new diet plans to help another family member find they feel better within weeks: they lose weight they hadn’t planned to lose, or sleep better and subsequently have more energy.
Lifestyle changes recommended for one family member usually can benefit the entire family. Naturopathic Medicine can help support all members of your family, from prenatal care, pediatric care, women and men’s health, and senior’s health. It’s helpful when healthy living ideas can be utilized by many (if not all) family members, leading to better quality of life, better immunity and more.
