WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Naturopathic medicine is the unity of modern medicine with traditional therapies. Dr. Kellie Raydon is licensed as a primary care physician. While Dr. Raydon utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, she also relies heavily on classical Chinese medicine. Through traditional therapies, we are able to address the underlying causes of issues and treat the body as a whole, not just the presenting symptoms. Since our bodies are complex systems, we believe that treating the whole body with the least invasive and most natural medicines, first and foremost, will lead to greater vitality and providing a cure.
Naturopathic physicians rely on the traditional, holistic treatments to heal the body, mind and spirit. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to support and promote the body’s natural healing process, leading to the highest state of wellness.
