Finding a good doctor near your home can be a daunting task – especially if you are looking for a physician who will support your own “natural medicine” beliefs of limited pharmaceuticals, treating the root cause, and using nutrition and other natural therapies as the first line of attack on any existing medical conditions. The type physician you are looking for must be eminently qualified from a medical training perspective, but they will be able to combine the best therapies of conventional medicine with the best available holistic, natural medicine therapies. This type doctor actually does exist! In the natural health world this type doctor is called an “Integrative Physician”. They integrate natural and conventional medicine modalities to give you the best therapeutic options that have the most promise for healing the true underlying cause of the disease or condition with the fewest side effects possible. They often simply enable the marvelous innate ability of our body to heal itself by giving the body the raw materials its needs. And that doctor will become a critically important partner of yours in your lifelong journey of vibrant health.
