The art and science of natural healing
Naturopathic medicine is a distinctive primary health care practice that takes a holistic approach to health, and treats not just the disease but also the person as a whole. It embraces the art and science of natural healing, so it seeks to restore and maintain optimal health by maximizing the body's inherent self-healing capacity.
Physiomobility provides naturopathic services through its affiliation with Dr. Mokhtari. The naturopathic practitioner deals with the underlying cause of the disease, while focusing on prevention, treatment and wellness, by providing a range of diagnostic laboratory tests (e.g. allergy testing) and therapies. The primary treatments used are therapeutic nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, diet and lifestyle counseling, detoxification, and stress management.
Naturopathic medicine uses safe, gentle, non-invasive therapies to deliver health care following these principles:
- Identify and treat the cause of disease, and avoid suppression of symptoms
- Respect and encourage the innate self-healing of the individual
- Individualize treatment to unify and balance physical, mental and emotional well being
- Teach healthy lifestyle choices to prevent disease and promote well being
