Hi Maha, nice to meet you. I'm Jenny BC here on the forum and am a recently minted functional medicine health coach and a naturopathic doctor as NF52 mentioned. I graduated in 2010 in the state of Illinois. Naturopathic docs can be licensed as PCP's in only 22 states in the U.S. currently and that saddens me because I think everyone should have the option to choose this evidence based, safe and effective medicine. The core tenets of our medicine are to treat each person as an individual and as a "whole being", meaning their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health are all intertwined and dependent. We also consider ourselves more as educators than experts, we believe in working at the lowest rung of the intervention ladder as possible to get results so we spend a lot of time in lifestyle modifications and removing the obstacles to cure. Speaking of which, we seek to optimize the bodies innate ability to heal itself and come into balance (Vis Medicatrix Naturae). We see illness as dis-ease or systems out of balance and seek to create health rather than surpress the body's expression of illness. We seek to determine the root causes of such imbalances. It can be very empowering as a medicine and ultimately want our clients/patients to learn how to heal themselves and others. The modalities of healing can include the coaching piece plus nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, physicial medicine and more! If you have any other questions for me, I am happy to answer them! The more people know about naturopathic medicine across the world, the happier I am!Maha wrote:I found Dr Max Tomlinson from London in the practitioners list.
