For patients looking for alternative therapies, naturopathic medicine offers a holistic, natural option. When looking for naturopathy or a chiropractor, Stamford CT residents look to the C.A.R.E. Health & Wellness Center for the treatments and counsel they deserve.

To help you make the best decisions about your medical care, here is some helpful information on naturopathic medicine.

About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine, sometimes referred to as naturopathy, is a kind of primary care medicine that focuses on prevention through the use of self-healing processes and natural remedies. Naturopathic medicine is a centuries-old profession founded on the belief that nature is the most effective healer.

Naturopathic diagnosis looks for the underlying causes of an illness and recommends therapies based on insights from multiple disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, phytotherapy, pharmacognosy, psychology and spirituality.

Therapies can take on multiple forms, including clinical nutrition, physical manipulation, botanical medicine, homeopathy and hydrotherapy. Naturopathy is based on six core principles:

  1. First, do no harm
  2. The healing power of nature
  3. Discover and treat the cause, not just the effect
  4. Treat the whole person
  5. The physician is a teacher
  6. Prevention is the best ‘cure’

These principles guide treatment, relying on low-risk procedures and items such as herbal extracts, dietary supplements and homeopathy that have few to no side effects.

Naturopathic Medical Training

A naturopathic doctor (ND) is a primary care physician who has graduated from a four-year naturopathic medical school. They are clinically trained and work in a range of family health disciplines, from pediatrics to geriatric care. Some NDs have received additional training in specialty areas such as acupuncture, Oriental medicine or midwifery. NDs usually operate out of a private practice in an office setting.

NDs have the same basic medical training as MDs, and use that Western medical science as a foundation for treatment. NDs must pass rigorous board exams in order to be licensed. NDs take on additional studies in therapeutic approaches that emphasize disease prevention and wellness.

Choosing a Chiropractor in Stamford ConnecticutAugust 18th 2016

C.A.R.E. Health and Wellness Center Offers Chiropractor Care and Natural Therapies To Help You Heal

When you’re in pain or recovering from illness or injury, you want trained professionals who will treat you well and help alleviate your discomfort. In Stamford CT, the C.A.R.E. (Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Rehabilitation, Exercise) Health and Wellness Center is the choice to make when selecting a talented and skilled chiropractor or other natural therapy service.

If you need chiropractic care, you may be wondering how to find the right chiropractor for your needs. Below are a few things to look for and ask when deciding on the right chiropractor:

  • Understand Chiropractic Methods
    Learn whether the chiropractor manipulates spines using instruments or hands, using joint-popping manipulation or low-force manipulation.
  • Know Chiropractic Treatment Duration
    Ask any potential chiropractic provider how long your treatment is expected to last. It is reasonable to expect a chiropractor to see you 3 times a week for the first 2-6 weeks of treatment. In most cases, you should feel results after a few visits and significant pain reduction in 1-4 weeks.
  • Learn the Chiropractor’s Background
    Check the educational background of any potential provider to ensure that he or she has gone to an accredited college or university. Most chiropractors obtain a bachelor’s degree and go on to receive their Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and receive certifications or post-graduate training.
  • Ask About Payment Plans
    Know whether your provider accepts your insurance, provides family discounts or allows you to spread payments out over a period of time.
  • Express Communication Preferences
    If you want time with your chiropractor to listen and answer questions, check to make sure your potential provider is willing to spend the time you need.
  • Develop a Comprehensive Plan
    It’s important that chiropractic care be part of a comprehensive treatment plan that involves physical exercise and good nutrition. Some chiropractic practices offer these services as well, as acupuncture, and rehabilitation, allowing for more coordinated care.
