What happens during a visit?
Visits include a detailed history of your health concerns; physical examination; referral for any necessary labwork or imaging; in-office treatments including cell salt therapy, craniosacral therapy, or other modalities appropriate to your individual case; and formulation of a personalized, step-by-step treatment plan to get you on the road to health.

Can I get off my medications?
Most patients find that their need for prescription medication decreases as their health improves. Coordination with the prescribing physician allows dosages to be monitored and adjusted or discontinued, as needed.

What should I bring with me?
A list of all medications and supplements that you are currently taking.

Previous medical records or labwork results are always helpful to establish patterns. If you have them, do please bring copies.

If you are coming in for craniosacral therapy, please either bring or wear loose, comfortable clothing to provide access to the full range of motion.

Will you work with my medical doctor?
Absolutely. It is in the patient’s best interest if all of their health care providers are working together for the benefit of the patient. This also allows for smooth coordination of care.

I don’t like to take pills, what are my options?
Many herbs and supplements come in liquid or powder form and are preferable for those with an aversion to “more pills.” In addition, dietary changes and physical medicine treatments can often be used to improve health without the need for supplements.

Do you sell supplements?
Seattle Natural Medicine does not sell supplements in the office. Directions will be provided as to where supplements can be purchased locally or there is an online dispensary so you can have them shipped directly to your home at reduced rates.

How are naturopathic doctors trained?
Naturopathic Doctors are trained similarly to Medical Doctors with regard to the clinical sciences and diagnostics. The main difference between the two medicines is that Naturopathic Doctors are trained to treat the whole person, and to identify and treat the underlying imbalances with safe and effective natural therapies. Pharmaceutical medications and surgery are still occasionally prescribed, but generally only rarely.

What is the difference between homeopathy
and naturopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the idea of "like treats like," where various substances are taken in extremely dilute form to correct imbalance within the body and to stimulate the vital force. Naturopathic medicine is more of an umbrella term covering a wide array of different therapies, homeopathy included.
