My Approach to Health
– Dr. Halldorson, Kelowna Naturopathic Doctor
I became interested in health while I was competing as an athlete. I noticed how I became faster and stronger when workouts were well planned. This is how the human body responds to training. This process fascinated me. Our bodies have thousands of these natural processes. These complex systems work contantly to keep us healthy. We become sick because these systems do not always work as perfectly as they should.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I help improve the health of my patients by supporting these systems. I take an evidenced based approach that combines natural, traditional and modern treatments. Naturopathic medicine can help you feel better.
What is a Naturopathic Doctor (ND)?
Naturopathic Doctors are highly trained general practitioners. We are primary health care providers who bridge natural and traditional therapies with modern medicine. We treat a wide variety of conditions and use well-researched treatments. Naturopathic Doctors have a strong focus on prevention. As a Kelowna Naturopathic Doctor, I work with patients throughout the Okanagan.
Creating the Conditions for Health and Healing
Naturopathic medicine is a unique system of health care. It creates conditions for you to heal. NDs find and treat the underlying mechanisms of your illness. I take thorough histories of your illness, order lab work, and perform physical exams in order to diagnose your condition. Treatments are then selected to augment your body’s own natural healing process.
