Naturopathic Treatment Goals
The human body has a tremendous capacity to heal itself. The principle known as the healing power of nature, is the foundation of naturopathic philosophy. Dr. Ruhlandís goal as a naturopathic physician is to help you restore balance to your body, your mind, and your spirit.
The focus of the first visit is treating current problems you are having, using natural therapies. If necessary, an intermediate-range goal may be to focus on preventing specific future illnesses. The long-term goal when treating you is to work with you to improve your health, not just by eliminating illness, but also by promoting wellness.
