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.
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.
It is imperative for you to continue working with your Primary Care Physician, as even though Naturopathic Doctors are doctors, we can not act as your only or primary care doctors in the state of Rhode Island.
Dr. Celeste is a one-stop-shop for your body mind and spirit. She will teach you integrative healthy methods to treat acutely as well as prevent chronic diseases to truly achieve optimal wellness.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, she is trained as a primary care physician; however, in the state of RI she can not be your primary care physician. This does not limit her ability to treat you as a patient. She will listen completely, and figure out the root cause of your complaints as well as the many ways to achieve your optimal wellness. You can expect a balance of conventional medicine and terminology as well as using food and herbs as medicine. She will address your prior diagnoses with a more holistic medical model, review and suggest labs if necessary, and then find the most natural way possible to bring your body back to balance. She will act as your coach, motivator, innovator, detective, and guide. She will provide you with many lifestyle tools and recommendations on how to live a healthier, more energetic, fulfilled life.
If you, or someone you know, would like to have Dr. Celeste as your guide to becoming healthier, feeling lighter, learning how to eat to prevent disease, or just have some tight muscles, please contact her here (form below or email: Drceleste@wellnessrisingllc.com) .
However, if you have an emergency, please contact your primary care physician or local hospital, as Naturopathic Doctors can not treat emergency medicine conditions nor can we prescribe pharmaceuticals.
These conditions, symptoms, or “dis-eases” have been and can be treated successfully with Naturopathic Medicine with or without prescription medications.
