Naturopathic Primary Care

Naturopathic primary care begins with natural therapies, such as personalized diets, herbal medicines, lifestyle changes, orthomolecular nutrition, and manual therapies. More invasive interventions, such as surgery and modern pharmacology, are used only when natural approaches do not fully restore health. With naturopathic primary care, you have the best of both worlds -- natural clinical therapeutics that have withstood the test of time and modern evidence-based medical practices.

Optimal Health

Health is a dynamic process of unfolding that invites you to experience a greater sense of personal well-being and connectedness to community and self. Optimal health refers to engaging in this journey to the best of your ability, using all your knowledge and skills as fully and effectively as possible. It is self-referential, assessed according to how you feel in relation to how you felt before, not how you compare to a statistical norm.

Medical Home

A "medical home" is not a place. It is a person-centered approach to primary care that involves a partnership between you, your physician, your family members, and other professionals. Your personal physician is qualified to diagnose and treat a wide range of health care needs. When necessary, your doctor contacts appropriate specialists on your behalf and collaborates with them to ensure continuity and consistency of care. The ultimate goal of a medical home is to promote wellness and utilize resources as effectively as possible to care for the whole person.

Empowerment

Empowerment refers to the process of enabling an individual to think, behave, take action, and control decision-making in autonomous ways. It is the state of feeling self-empowered to actively participate in creating your future. Empowerment is a critical component of primary care because medical clinicians and treatments do not heal you -- you heal yourself. Three types of empowerment are important in healing: biological, personal, and institutional.

Listen to what one child said about her care at HeartSong:

From Lucia's mom's email:
Thank you for yesterday!
Lucia said, "I liked her!"
"She was so thorough --- she even checked my fingernails!"
Then, when we got home, she made a diet journal so next time we see you she will share that with you.
Love to you and great thanks!

Hear what one person has to say about the medical home experience:

You're the mecca, like the home base, i come here and then you can decide where to send me for anything else you think i need. I don't have to figure everything out myself.
