If you’re managing an inflammatory condition such as enteropathic arthritis, back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, foot conditions or lupus, you will probably work with a local family physician and a local rheumatologist. You may choose to work with a local naturopathic physician in addition to your other healthcare providers. A local naturopathic physician is a wellness provider who focuses on treating patients’ root causes of dysfunctions and conditions, not just treating the symptoms. A local naturopathic physician utilizes natural remedies such as homeopathy and nutritional medicine to help a patient’s body to heal itself. Patients with inflammatory conditions such as Raynaud’s disease and osteoarthritis may find working with a local naturopathic physician beneficial. Local naturopathic physicians can ask about your diet, exercise and sleep habits; find out more about your mental health and look at your health history to help make decisions about your future. If you choose to work with a local naturopathic physician for your foot osteoarthritis, they can work with your local family physician or local rheumatologist to help you manage your condition.
