In the past, the greatest risk to our health was infection. For the first time in history, acute illness is no longer a leading cause of death. Today, it’s diabetes, heart disease, GI disorders, cancer, etc. Of these, 80% of chronic disease is preventable, and many are quite treatable. New diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are becoming commonplace.
Acute illness is generally well controlled with drug therapy. However, pharmaceuticals tend only to suppress the symptoms of chronic illness for a finite time. To properly treat chronic illness, we treat the underlying cause of disease and remove any obstacles to cure.
We work closely with our patients to understand what their disease means to them, how it started, how its changed, and how they want to heal their body.
At Care Practice, we make health and healing possible through sophisticated and targeted laboratory testing. Naturopathic and Medical doctors work together to interpret and diagnose the whole disease picture. We use a combination of pharmaceutical, herbal, and homeopathic medicines. We teach patients how to identify and change bad habits, and check in frequently.
The body always wants to heal itself. From a small cut to fibromyalgia, removing obstacles to encourage healing is the best medicine we know. At Care Practice, we believe nature is wise, and we’re here to bring that wisdom to your medical care.
