Naturopathic Medicine Q & A

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine focuses on preventing disease and using natural therapies to support your body’s ability to heal. Doctors who practice naturopathic medicine treat the whole patient, relentlessly searching for the true underlying cause of their health problem by exploring their physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being.

Naturopathic physicians receive extensive training in the traditional medical curriculum, including pharmacology, so they’re trained and qualified to diagnose and treat the full range of acute and chronic conditions. They also undergo additional training in natural interventions such as:

  • Clinical nutrition
  • Homeopathic medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Physical medicine

When you receive medical care at Grayhawk Family Practice, your integrative health plan may include treatments from natural medicine, traditional medicine, or both.

If you subscribe to the concierge medicine services available at Grayhawk Family Practice, your naturopathic care comes with 24/7 access to your provider, extended appointments, unlimited office visits, and virtual visits when you need help but can’t get to the office.

What types of naturopathic treatments might I receive?

Naturopathic doctors are experts in a broad range of natural treatments. These are a few examples of therapies often included in integrative treatment plans:

  • Intravenous and injection therapy: To deliver vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants specially formulated to treat health conditions and boost your overall health
  • Nutraceutical prescriptions: For medical-grade nutrients and functional foods
