Naturopathic Medicine

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine balances natural practices with modern science. Relying on age-old health and healing practices, naturopathic medicine concentrates on modalities that tap into your body’s innate healing abilities. These protocols are science-based, measured, and effective. 

Naturopathic medicine focuses on proactive prevention through diet and lifestyle. Rather than treating symptoms, natural medicine doctors search for and treat the underlying cause to restore your body to optimal health.

Working in conjunction with conventional medicine doctors, naturopathic medicine doctors take a whole-body approach that supports your body, mind, and spirit.

What health conditions are treated with naturopathic medicine?

Dr. Barnett is trained as a primary care doctor to care for all aspects of health and wellness. She treats both chronic and acute illnesses. Common conditions treated with naturopathic medicine include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic disease
  • Food allergies
  • Infertility
  • Headaches
  • Candida
  • Skin disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Obesity
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Insomnia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chemotherapy recovery

Dr. Barnett encourages you to seek help when you sense something is not right in your body. Symptoms are your body’s way of letting you know there is an imbalance. Dr. Barnett’s goal is to stop the disease process before it fully develops. Early treatment can prevent a problem from becoming chronic.

What can I expect during an appointment with a naturopath?

At your initial consultation, Dr. Barnett meets with you to learn about your health history, health problems, diet, lifestyle, and health goals. She conducts an in-depth physical examination and lab work to discover the root cause of your condition.

Equipped with this information, Dr. Barnett customizes a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs with an ultimate goal to optimize your health in every way. You’ll return every month or two for follow-up visits to track your progress and update your wellness plan.

Is naturopathic medicine covered by insurance?

Since naturopathic medicine doctors are primary care physicians, many insurance plans do include it. Dr. Barnett contracts with most major health plans, but individual coverage varies widely. To understand your benefits, call your provider and ask about your preventive benefits and if naturopathic medicine is a part of your coverage.
