Naturopathy (Naturopathic Medicine) is a primary health care system using the techniques of prevalent medical science in combination with natural medicine. When the body projects symptoms of illness or disease, it is a warning sign that it is not functioning properly. The naturopathic process is to use these techniques in order to find the underlying cause of these disease or illness related symptoms, which could stem from improper cellular processes caused by poor lifestyle habits, to genetic abnormalities.
Your initial consultation will be 60-90 minutes in length. During this visit, Dr. Chitale reviews your medical history, your specific concerns and your health goals. Dr. Chitale will perform a complaint-oriented physical exam, and indicate lab tests and homework that need to be done.
