You’ve likely heard—or asked—this question more than once: “How do I find good doctors near me?” Locating a physician close to your home can be a daunting task, especially if you’re looking for one who will support increasingly popular “natural medicine” practices:

  • Limited pharmaceuticals
  • Treating the root cause
  • ‘Finding a good holistic doctor near me.’ Using nutrition and other natural therapies as the first line of attack on any existing medical conditions.

The type of physician you’re looking for must be eminently qualified from a medical training perspective, but he or she 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, and in the natural health world is called an “integrative physician.” They integrate natural and conventional medicine modalities to give you the best therapeutic options—options that have the most promise for healing the true underlying cause of the disease or condition with the fewest side effects possible.

Integrative doctors often enable the marvelous innate ability of our body to heal itself by giving it the raw materials its needs. When you find the right one, he or she will become a critically important partner in your lifelong journey of vibrant health.

  • I’m looking for a doctor in the Linwood, NJ area (Atlantic County) who will work with me to treat depression and social anxiety. I have had success on Paxil in the past, but I will not go on it again due to unbearable side effects. I’ve tried many other antidepressants and none have worked, and I’d like to avoid them entirely due to, again, the toxicity and side effects. I would like to try a regimen of St Johns Wort and perhaps Valerian or something similar. I realize I can do this on my own, but feel it would be best to work with someone who has experience and who can confidently recommend an overall treatment plan, specific brands, etc. Confidence (not arrogance!) is important to me, as I need that placebo effect. It’s at least half the battle. I’m at my wits end. Please help.
