What you need to know about Naturopathic Medicine
Have you ever wished that there was a medical doctor that was well-versed in natural healthcare? If so, Naturopathic Medicine is the type of health care you have been looking for. Many people are surprised to hear that there exist medically-trained professionals that are also experts in natural healing. Naturopathic Doctors are the true bridge between scientific modern medicine and the ancient wisdom of natural healing.
Caution: The majority of practitioners that are naturopaths or call themselves Naturopathic Doctors are not medically-trained. Naturopathy is the only profession where two completely different types of practitioners use similar names, causing confusion for many seeking alternative healthcare.
Medically-trained NDs are educated similar to MDs and DOs, and are trained to be primary care physicians, while nonmedically-trained naturopaths receive very little education with no pre-med bachelor degree requirement, no medical training, and no physical medicine, acupuncture, minor surgery, etc. as do medically-trained NDs. At a minimum, medically-trained Naturopathic Doctors must be educated and trained to the level of an M.D. in order to receive a License to Practice Medicine and be recognized as a Physician, regardless of the state.

Dr. Caravone's Approach to Naturopathic Medicine
Getting better requires more than taking a pill or having surgery. In order to truly heal for good, one must unravel the layers of dysfunction in the body and rebuild from the inside-out. Covering symptoms only worsens physical conditions over time, but real healing takes work, education, and dedication. The rewards are great for those who are willing to take charge of their health.
Dr. Caravone works with Naturopathic therapies (*see below) to restore your body to proper functioning, allowing it to rid itself of infections, underlying contaminants, and endocrine or other imbalances that cause disease and chronic medical conditions. Because most illnesses are caused by alterations in the body due to toxins, chemicals, medications, and other unhealthy substances, adding more pills does not usually address the cause. It is the removal of these underlying foreign
substances that creates the opportunity for the body to restore its original balance.
*Naturopathic therapies include therapies that would be used by medical doctors, chiropractors, herbalists, nutritionists, acupuncturists, bodyworkers, massage therapists, homeopaths, osteopathic doctors, etc.
When used correctly,
natural remedies are actually more powerful and more curative than non-natural remedies. Dr. Caravone uses aggressive, natural therapies consisting of a wide array of Naturopathic modalities including botanical medicines, transformative cleansing, structural alignment, Oriental Medicine, nutrition, body work, homeopathy, etc. to address immediate discomfort and symptoms. Although she is trained to use conventional medical treatments such as writing prescriptions for pharmaceuticals, performing minor surgeries, administering IVs, and referring for all medical testing and imaging, Dr. Caravone has seen far better results using aggressive Naturopathic therapies.
Contrary to popular belief, medically-trained Naturopathic Doctors are trained to treat just about any medical condition that Medical Doctors do. In addition, Naturopathic therapies generally work as quickly or
quicker than mainstream medical treatments.
The only difference between healing
urgent/acute conditions naturally is
that natural therapies address both the immediate concerns and long-term health issues at the same time – ensuring improvement over time rather than worsening over time.
Dr. Caravone is well-educated in the medical field and is trained to treat all acute
ailments such as colds, flus, coughs, gastrointestinal issues, urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma attacks, ear infections, food poisoning, menstrual cramps, gangrene, wounds, muscle pain/spasm, and much more.
A well-functioning body means less dependence on pharmaceuticals, supplements, and other treatments to create and maintain a healthy body.
Dr. Caravone successfully relieves symptoms and urgent medical concerns providing immediate responses while healing the underlying cause. This is what ensures improvement in overall health over time, as opposed to a degeneration in health year after year.
It only works if you do it!
Although Dr. Caravone can guide you on your path to unbelievable levels of health, it cannot be done without the follow-through and effort of the patient. Many of us are accustomed to blindly following doctor's orders and sitting back while a pill takes effect or a surgery is performed. In reality, true healing of the physical body needs more support than pills and procedures. Those who become empowered and learn how to take control of their health are the ones that see results beyond belief!
