Roots and Branches Integrative Health Care
I am a Naturopathic Doctor dedicated to diagnosing and treating mystery illness. Diagnosis is focused on "Why you have", not What you have
I am a Naturopathic Doctor (Bastyr University) dedicated to the relentless pursuit of the underlying causes of chronic illness. Conventional and Integrated model often call "what you have" your diagnosis...For example, Fibromyalgia simple means painful muscles. SIBO simply means Bacterial overgrowth in the small intestines.....Why your muscles hurt, Why you have bacterial overgrowth is the diagnosis in our clinic. When we work with a patient, we lay out all the potential underlying causes for your ailments (for example, did you know Sleep apnea causes depression?). We then test every single one of these possibilities to get to the diagnosis....a diagnosis in our clinic is usually 2-4 pages long and lays out the play-by-play of why you are ill. At this level of diagnosis, the treatment reveals itself. No frills hardcore, clear, clean full spectrum diagnosis is what's needed to restore a patients quality of life and graduate them from health care.
Sincere dedicated approach to discovering the underlying causes of their illness. Thorough. Deep dive into their lives and physiological experience. Everything from one's upbringing to the buildings they grew up in to the Grouper fish they ate on a trip to Africa are potential causes for illness. Most of my mystery illness patients come to us with a decent diet and lifestyle, so they are relieved that we understand more about underlying causes than simply eat better and exercise more.
I had some health care issues of my own. Both conventional and natural practitioners were taking superficial approaches to my health care. I dreamed of creating a health care clinic that spent time, money and energy on finding the accurate underlying causes of dis-ease....instead of applying Drug for symptom or herbal "green" band-aids" (I love herbs, but they tonify systems, they don't address root cause).
