What are the Three Pillars of Health in Naturopathic Medicine?
Restore - Clear - Stimulate
Restore Normal Digestive Function
1. Restore normal digestive function so your body can provide the necessary nutrients to your cells. A healthy GI tract is essential for overall health. Healing may involve finding out and avoiding your food intolerances, soothing and restoring digestive function with specific foods or supplements, increasing your body's ability to digest foods by ensuring proper acid and enzyme production and correcting structural concerns or stress responses that negatively impact your digestion.
Clear Waste and Toxic Accumulation
2. Clear waste and toxic accumulation from your cells, mind, and body. If your detox pathways are overburdened or sluggish, your body is going to have symptoms that may include fatigue, weight gain, high blood pressure, skin issues, or auto-immune concerns. When we are able to love on our detox pathways from within, while pouring less harmful offenders into our system, we are able to heal and resolve symptoms and disease. Our detox pathways can be equated to garbage buckets or conveyor belts. When we clean these up from the inside out by avoiding our food intolerances, decreasing toxic chemicals or medications, avoiding toxic thoughts and people, while supporting our detox pathways, our body responds by eliminating symptoms, and preventing chronic disease.
Stimulate Your Body's Innate Ability to Heal
3. Stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal. When we listen to the mind and body, give it what it needs to heal, and get rid of what is harming it, it has the ability to heal itself. We teach, support, and guide you so you know what your body thrives on or is harmed by, so you can keep yourself in balance in the future. We are able to decrease the burden on the subconscious mind and nervous system so you can have less stress, resolve past trauma, and feel more balanced and calm. We help you gain confidence and healthier boundaries so you are empowered to make positive choices with your career, relationships, and health moving forward. When you are balance on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels, your body is able to thrive and heal from the inside out, now and long term!
