How to find the right naturopath
Dr. Moira Fitzpatrick understands the frustrations patients have in the “pill for every ill” model. Here she gives advice on how to find a naturopath who can help you navigate additional options.
I certainly can understand you being upset with conventional medicine, because one of the things that happens is that they listen to your symptoms and have a medication for this symptom and that symptom. That can be frustrating because you can end up taking lots of pills and the original issue doesn’t get resolved. Do some research and interview some of the naturopaths in your area, and let them know what you’re interested in and ask them the questions that you’re concerned about, and then pick someone that resonates with you, someone who really listens to you.
