At the Clinic of Natural Medicine we treat you, not your condition
We believe that whatever your disease or condition may be, it is a manifestation of underlying imbalances in your body. Determining these underlying imbalances is an essential step in correcting them.
Our first meeting we will meet for a thorough consultation. This meeting usually lasts one hour.
Next we will do a review of all conventional testing (blood work, pathology reports, imaging, etc.), physical and further testing if indicated.
We may even do an analysis of your genomics, which tell us at the most basic levels how you process certain nutrients or break down substances your body manufactures like hormones, catecholamines, and neurotransmitters.
Symptoms as Language
Symptoms can be viewed as the language of the body. One role of the naturopathic physicians at Pacific Integrative Oncology is to interpret your symptoms. While it is possible that several symptoms are unrelated, it is also possible for themes to emerge from a symptom complex. The body must be looked at as a whole as well as its parts. While the conventional medical profession has divided the body neatly into areas of expertise, this reduction to parts does not always allow for assessment of the entire functioning unit. There is not a single process in the human body that takes place in isolation. Treating the whole person, as a unique individual, is essential for successful care.
