Naturopathic Doctor Los Angeles
What does a naturopathic doctor do?
One of the strongest benefits you will gain from the Los Angeles Integrative Medicine clinic is a comprehensive approach to functional medicine. Dr. Rao, a naturopathic doctor in Los Angeles, partners with his patients to focus on finding the right balance towards healthy well-being, beyond a disease-centered methodology.
Taking into account your full medical history, your lifestyle, stress levels, eating habits, environment and other factors that impact your health, a naturopathic doctor takes time to get to know you. Only when a larger picture of the way your systems are interacting and impacting one another is understood, can obstacles to your health be removed and proactive preventative measures be added.
Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and autoimmune disorders, are complex. These chronic illnesses stem from a number of possible causes and underlying conditions which can exacerbate them. The functional medicine approach practiced by Dr. Rao, a naturopathic doctor in Los Angeles, takes the genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors into account for both diagnostic and treatment purposes.
He also reviews the relationship between your body’s many systems. When one system encounters an imbalance, the network of related systems is impacted, furthering the depth of the condition. A naturopathic doctor creates a wellness plan that incorporates a holistic treatment approach, addressing the full range of interrelating concerns.
Why go to a naturopathic doctor?
After gathering all aspects of relevant information about you and your history, a naturopathic doctor works with you toward obtaining your health goals. Understanding the various aspects of contributing factors in your illness, pain, or other condition, a naturopathic doctor creates a comprehensive plan which can include treatment from many angles. This may include things like making adjustments to your diet, prescription medication, supplements, with a focus on endocrine function, organ function, and environmental triggers.
A naturopathic doctor works in partnership with you, making adjustments to your treatment plan as your health responds and changes. The ultimate goal goes beyond the cessation of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor works to restore your body to a state of ongoing homeostasis. That entails creating balance in your biochemical, hormonal, endocrinal, gastrointestinal, neural, and microbiome systems.
