6 Incredible Benefits of Naturopathic Medicine

Doctors have been practicing some form of naturopathic medicine for over 100 years in North America, but naturopathy is much older and widely practiced in European countries like Germany well before it was imported to the United States at the dawn of the 20th century. 

Also known as “nature doctors,” the practitioners of naturopathic medicine took an integrative approach to medicine, which included a number of elements related to health and well-being, from diet and exercise to plant-based remedies and psychological health.

Naturopathic doctors and medical professionals take what’s known as a whole-person approach to health and healing, looking at multiple factors that contribute to injuries, disease, and healing. At New Hampshire Regenerative Center, our doctors and specialists offer a range of integrative medical services and therapies at our office in Manchester, New Hampshire.

6 Benefits of Naturopathic Medicine

No two bodies are exactly alike. While millions of people around the world may suffer from similar diseases and health problems like anxiety, depression, or high blood pressure, no one experiences the same illness or health problem in quite the same way. 

Factors like genetics and family history, environment, lifestyle, and emotional states among others all play a role in how healthy you may be, how likely you are to develop certain conditions, and how you heal and respond to certain treatments.

Naturopathic doctors and specialists take all of these factors into account to design comprehensive treatment plans that look at the entire picture, not just your symptoms. To help you understand this approach to healing, we at New Hampshire Regenerative Center discuss some of the known benefits of naturopathy and integrative medicine below.

Preventive 

Medical professionals can help you manage many of the most serious and even life-threatening illnesses more effectively and successfully when they’re diagnosed early. Better yet, a preventive approach can greatly lower your risk of developing many illnesses and diseases in the first place. 

Naturopathy encourages a healthy lifestyle and well-rounded care that works not just to treat sickness, but to keep you healthy in the first place.

Cost-effective

Naturopathic treatments like therapeutic massage and nutrition counseling can offer relief for a number of health problems like pain, joint stiffness, and stress without breaking the bank. In some cases, we may even help to prevent the need for expensive treatments and services in the future.

Minimally invasive

Naturopathic treatments are generally gentle and non-invasive, allowing you to continue your normal routine with little to no downtime during the treatment period.

Not a one-size-fits-all solution

Naturopathic medicine is designed to treat each patient individually, so your treatment plan is unique to you and your circumstances and situation.

Incorporates mental health and well-being

While growing awareness over the importance of mental health has made it easier for people to prioritize their mental health and well-being and to seek treatment when necessary, it isn’t always treated as a priority. Naturopathic medicine takes the whole person into account, which includes your mental and emotional health.

Works with traditional medicine

Naturopathic medicine isn’t a substitute for traditional medicine, but the two can work together and complement each other to promote greater health, recovery, and well-being.
