Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique form of primary health care that focuses on combining modern scientific knowledge with traditional natural forms of medicine. It focuses on creating circumstances to allow the body to heal itself as well as treating the underlying cause and preventing it from re-occurring. Naturopathic Doctors, Such as Dr. Amanda Guthrie draw attention to a whole body approach to healing whereby she addresses the underlying cause of illness rather than merely treating the symptoms. Further, she explores the importance of preventing illness and disease by assessing risk factors, heredity, and individual susceptibility to disease. In addressing a person’s health concerns, Naturopathic Doctors look at the ‘whole picture’ – the physical, mental, environmental, and social aspects. This results in a treatment that is carefully tailored to meet each individual’s needs. The means by which Naturopathic Doctors treat are through:

  • Nutritional Counseling and Clinical Nutrition
  • Botanical/Herbal Medicine
  • Asian Medicine and Acupuncture
  • Physical Therapy
  • Lifestyle Counseling

The treatment provided by Dr. Amanda Guthrie is integrated with the work of the other clinicians in order to provide maximal likelihoods of more positive outcomes.
