What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is healthcare in the context of prevention and wellness, with a focus on treating the whole person with safe and effective natural treatments.

Naturopathy involves taking a comprehensive look at your life and body as a whole. This includes considering the mental and physical aspects of your health, as well as your environment and lifestyle. Naturopathic doctors support your body’s innate ability to heal. We spend the time to listen to your story and understand your unique and individual experiences of your symptoms and health concerns.

 

Naturopathic medicine is covered by most extended healthcare insurance plans. Therefore, make sure to check your plan and take advantage of the opportunity to invest in your health!

Naturopathic Medicine and Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that causes damage to the small intestine, leading to difficulties with digestion and malabsorption of nutrients. The required treatment after a diagnosis of celiac disease is to follow a strict gluten free diet.

 

Naturopathic doctors are trained in treating the root cause of disease and individualizing the treatment to suit your specific needs. As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Casey can assist you in understanding how to follow a strict gluten free diet and ensure you’re continuing to meet your nutritional requirements. She can also assess for nutritional deficiencies and co-morbidities that are associated with celiac disease.

 

If you or a family member have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease, you can reach out to Dr. Casey by emailing her at questions@emilycaseynd.com for more information.
