Naturopathic Medicine is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person.
Methods of treatments are chosen to work with the patient’s vital force, respecting the intelligence of the natural healing process.
The practice of Naturopathic Medicine emerges from six underlying principles of healing. These principles are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually reexamined in light of scientific analysis. The following tenants, reaching far back to the time of Hippocrates, distinguish the profession from other medical approaches.
These conditions, symptoms, or “dis-eases” have been and can be treated successfully with Naturopathic Medicine with or without prescription medications.
Naturopathic Medicine is unique in that EVERY INDIVIDUAL can improve their health and wellbeing no matter where they are in the health/dis-ease continuum.
Naturopathic physicians are family practice physicians and have a responsibility to the patient to provide the best health care available.
A few of these conditions may require additional lab testing that may or may not be covered by your health insurance plan. Dr. Celeste can order a few select labs found on http://www.wr.mymedlab.com. In the state of RI, Naturopaths cannot officially diagnose disease or prescribe pharmaceuticals, so it is recommended to continue working with your Primary Care Physician. Communication avenues should always be kept open to treat you and your concerns optimally.
