OUR CHALLENGE

Is to extend the benefits of naturopathic medicine to all...This is how it's done 

Naturopathic Specialists is an internationally recognized integrative medical center based in Scottsdale, Arizona.  We have formed a team with the goal of providing the best standard of care for our patients.  Our physicians believe that for a person to be treated effectively, they need to be treated as an individual.  This means that we don't take the 'assembly line' approach to patient care.  Each choice that our doctors make in the treatment of a patient is based off that individual's particular needs and situation.

If you take the typical approach of conventional medicine; when a patient comes in with a specific complaint, they're generally given a prescription in an attempt to address the symptom.  The question that that raises though, is this:  Does burying a symptom with the use of medication eliminate the underlying cause of disfunction, or just sweep it under the rug?

In an ideal world, each person who needs medical care would be helped to see the steps which led up to their medical problem and be professionally guided to restore their body's balance and allow it to heal itself.

That is what we do at Naturopathic Specialists.

Take a look at some of the benefits of involving Naturopathic Specialists in your care:

 

Healthcare, like any other field can develop a certain stigma.  Most of what is publicized about health is about Obamacare, or Trumpcare, and doesn't actually seem to be overly concerned with actual care of people as individuals.

At Naturopathic Specialists, we believe that a meaningful and beneficial  patient-doctor relationship is the foundation of productive and effective medicine.  We believe that care is the most important part of healthcare.  That's why our website is called 'listen and care'.  It's our goal as a practice to elevate the care of our patients and to embody the meaning of healthcare.  It's with that idea in mind that we fully stand behind the core principals of Naturopathic Medicine.

The following are the six principals that guide us to raise Healthcare to the Power of NS:

The Healing Power of Nature

The human body is inherently able to restore and maintain health. The physician’s role is to support the body’s innate abilities with natural, non-toxic therapies, and to assist the patient in creating a healthy environment and lifestyle.

Identify and Treat the Causes

Symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body’s natural attempt to heal. Naturopathic physicians seek and treat the underlying cause of a disease. The origin of disease is removed or treated so the patient can recover.

First, Do No Harm

Naturopathic medicine uses therapies that are safe and effective. Since the goal is to identify and treat the cause, naturopathic physicians avoid, and consider harmful, treatments that obscure the cause by suppressing symptoms.

Treat the Whole Person

The human body, mind, and spirit are fully integrated aspects of a person’s overall being. Each patient is a unique whole, and requires individualized and comprehensive consideration for healing to occur.

Doctor as Teacher

The naturopathic physician’s most important role is to empower the patient to reclaim agency over his or her own health. The physician strives to instill the patient with hope and knowledge. Ultimately, it is the patient not the physician who achieves healing.

Prevention Beats Cure

“The best defense is a strong offense,” as the adage goes. Naturopathic physicians shift the emphasis from fighting disease to building and maintaining good health. The ultimate goal of naturopathic medicine is prevention.
