NATURALLy vibrant health
A place where the philosophy is to treat disease by first uncovering the underlying cause(s), treat the whole person, not just an organ or a symptom, and use the powers of nature to help one rid themselves of disease. It is the oldest form of medicine, most commonly used before the advent of prescription medication. Now however, there is a resurgence in the interest and desire to seek out a licensed naturopathic physician.

What Is A Naturopathic Physician?
Naturopathic doctors are educated and trained in accredited naturopathic medical schools. Their curricula includes certain areas of study not covered in conventional medical school and at the same time, they receive courses in anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, endocrinology, etc. the same as MD’S and Osteopaths. The result is a comprehensive, rigorous, and well rounded scientific medical education. They cannot receive their degree through any on line program.
They are trained to diagnose, prevent and treat a wide variety of diseases. The way they treat disease is a huge difference between MD’S and DO’s. Instead of suppressing symptoms by prescribing s drug to lower inflammation, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, naturopathic physicians aim to identify the underlying cause of the health concerns. The first step-in returning a patient to health is to remove any obstacles such as poor food choices, digestive problems, stress levels, compromised immune system, and/or suboptimal organ function. Our initial consultation is comprehensive so at the end of that visit you will have a plan to begin your healing journey.
In Hawaii, naturopathic doctors are considered Primary Care Physicians. We can order labs, imaging, prescribe medication, and/or prescribe a wide variety of natural medicines to help you rid yourself of disease. Ready to get started? Give us a call today.
