Body, Mind and Spirit
Naturopathic doctors believe in treating the root cause of your condition. This may require introspection of not only physical symptoms but mental and emotional symptoms as well. Dr Caralei Peters MSc, ND treats her patients with individualized lifestyle counselling to address concerns such as poor sleep hygiene, lack of exercise or stress.
Much of the work you will do with your ND is identifying and making connections between emotions and past incidences with your current emotional state. Your ND will make a referral to a psychologist or family doctor when necessary.
Conditions often improved by lifestyle counselling include stress, anxiety, sleep, depression, phobias and pain management.
