About Naturopathic Medicine
“If you’ve ever wondered if there’s a safer, more effective, more affordable alternative to conventional medicine, there absolutely is. Come and get it.”
- Dr. Michelle Brannick
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
At Brannick Clinic we practice Naturopathic Medicine - the most powerful primary care medicine there is. Naturopathic Medicine combines centuries-old natural therapies with the most current medical science to attain optimal health for the whole patient - mind, body spirit - and the whole family, from prenatal health to geriatric care. It is a progressive and comprehensive system of medicine that places equal emphasis on becoming healthy and staying healthy.
“If you believe healthcare should be individually focused, this is the place.”
The Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Treat the Whole Person
Recognizing the numerous influences on our health – physical, emotional, genetic, spiritual, environmental – and their innumerable combinations, naturopathic physicians treat each patient as a distinct individual.
The Healing Power of Nature
The most formidable tool in a naturopathic physician’s toolbox is the body’s own ability to heal itself.
Identify & Treat the Causes
Naturopathic medicine views symptoms as an indication of a deeper problem. So rather than simply suppressing the symptom, the focus is on treating the source of the problem.
First Do No Harm
Minimizing the potential for side effects, naturopathic therapies are gentle, nontoxic and noninvasive.
The Doctor as Teacher
Naturopathic physicians believe informed patients become more active participants in their own health and might even inspire others to do the same!
One size does not fit all when it comes to health. Naturopathic physicians customize each patient’s health regimen, then partner with him or her to attain it. Prevention is the best strategy for better health!
