Understanding MedLink’s Naturopathic Concierge Model
Naturopathic medicine has been around for centuries in many different countries, and has been found to be a great avenue for treatment and healing across the globe. Today, many patients who don’t see results from traditional Western medicine seek out alternative therapies such as naturopathic medicine. At MedLink Health Solutions, we pride ourselves on helping patients understand the wide range of health benefits that alternative medicine can provide. In this blog post, we will explore what naturopathic medicine is and how our Naturopathic Concierge service sets us apart.
What Is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine involves turning to alternate models of healthcare to diagnose ailments and heal the body naturally. At MedLink, we understand that not everyone’s body responds to traditional medicine or treatments the same. Naturopathic medicine can help you discover alternate therapies that will work for your body’s individual needs. Naturopathic medicine is built on 6 principles:
- First, do no harm
- Identify and treat the causes of disease
- Treat the whole person
- The doctor as teacher
- The healing power of nature
Naturopathic treatment involves a variety of different healing modalities, including natural herbs, natural injection therapy, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and more. Naturopathic medicine focuses on healing the whole person, not just masking their ailments with medication. This mirrors a core belief of MedLink, as we’ve designed our Naturopathic Concierge model to address this growing awareness among patients.
The MedLink Difference
At MedLink, we set ourselves apart by using a distinct treatment model that supports maintaining and improving wellness rather than reacting to disease. Our naturopathic services work in a concierge model, which gives you the power to choose the level of care that you need. At MedLink, we make health care possible by working around your schedule and developing treatment plans that fit your lifestyle.
In addition to providing the foundational naturopathic medicine necessities, such as comprehensive bloodwork, a treatment plan, and access to supplements, we also go above and beyond with services that can help you achieve optimal health in today’s environment. This includes food allergy panels, micronutrient testing, and hormone balancing which we believe are important factors to incorporate into a well-rounded wellness plan. When patients come to us because their bodies haven’t responded to traditional medicine, we often find that these lifestyle factors that others have missed contribute to their ailments. Our focus on listening to the patient and treating the whole person is crucial to the naturopathic medicine model. We not only want to help you heal your ailments, we want to help you incorporate health into your everyday life so that you continue to be healthy for years to come.
