Naturopathic Medicine and Holistic Nutrition
Naturopathic medicine is a system of healthcare that blends the best of natural healing methods (herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, lifestyle) with modern science. It can be especially useful for supporting healthy pregnancy, birth, lactation, and beyond. Naturopathic care ideally starts before conception, assuring that both egg and sperm are optimally healthy. Common pregnancy ailments such as nausea, fatigue, recurring urinary tract infections, chronic vaginitis, and nutritional deficiency can be greatly improved with naturopathic medicine. Not just for pregnancy, naturopathic doctors are able to offer a holistic approach to all health concerns through all stages of a life, including both children and adults.
A holistic approach to nutrition can help people achieve optimal mental, physical, and spiritual health through the use of food and nutrients. It is a wonderful nutritional plan for pregnancy and lactation because it is tailor made to your body’s specific needs during these times. The focus is on eating foods that provide your body with the highest levels of nutritional value and supplementing one’s diet with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, when necessary.
