Naturopathic Medicine Q & A

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a specialized area of primary care that takes a natural and holistic approach to managing your health and wellness. The practice focuses on preventive care and treatment that encourages your body’s self-healing process.

When designing your health plan, Dr. Powell takes your physical, mental, and spiritual health into consideration to optimize wellness on all levels. He doesn’t just focus on your symptoms or primary health concern, but wants to heal your whole body.

What can I expect when visiting a naturopathic doctor?

Dr. Powell provides comprehensive primary care and can manage a number of conditions. When you come in for your initial visit, he may spend an hour or more with you learning about you and your health. During your visit, Dr. Powell asks about your medical and health history, as well your stress levels and lifestyle, and conducts a physical exam that may include bloodwork.
