A local naturopathic physician is a wellness professional who focuses on treating the root causes of a patient’s health problems, not just the symptoms. A local naturopathic physician may use a variety of holistic treatments including nutritional medicine and acupuncture. If you have diabetes, a local naturopathic physician can be a beneficial part of your healthcare team. They can help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels, understand diabetes medications and offer lifestyle counselling. Your local nutritionist may work with your local endocrinologist to provide a comprehensive approach to your diabetes treatment plan.
