Naturopathic Medicine can play a key role in treating a number of women’s health concerns. We especially excel in listening to patients and determining which signals from the body are messages of imbalance. Utilizing a variety of treatment methods, such as botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture and nutrition, we guide patients back to a state of hormonal balance and optimal health.
Naturopathic Doctors are trained to support the organs of detoxification – which include the liver, kidney’s, colon, lungs, skin and lymphatic system. Many chronic illnesses will significantly improve by supporting the organs of detoxification. Dr. Mason-Wood and Dr. Bjorndal have extensive training in this area and use a combination of diet, homeopathic drainage, botanical medicine and supplementation to customize a treatment program for their patients.
Functional medicine is an integrated approach to your health that blends Naturopathic Medicine and the latest scientific research to address the underlying causes of disease. The principle of finding the root cause of illness and balancing body systems is taken from naturopathic and oriental medicine. How our genetics interact with the environment and our lifestyle to influence our biochemistry is looked at from a scientific perspective. These two philosophies were brought together to form the system known as Functional Medicine that was created in 1990 by Jeffery Bland, MD.
At Natural Terrain Naturopathic Clinic Dr. Mason-Wood does not just look to treat your symptoms; he looks to treat the underlying cause of your pain. He has been trained to look at your body as a whole and identify the root cause of your pain. Treatment involves the reduction of inflammation while also healing what caused the inflammation.
