Naturopathic Medicine is a system of health care that focuses on the use of natural therapeutics to promote health and address the root causes of illness and imbalance rather than covering up symptoms. This distinctive field of medicine has a primary focus on the prevention of chronic disease, to allow the healing power of nature transform the body and mind towards greater health and vitality. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) seek to restore and maintain optimum health in their patients by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing processes via a combination of conventional and holistic fields of medicine, which in turn leads to an integrative and individualized therapeutic approach. NDs combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science.
Two of Dr. Galina’s specialties are pediatrics and prenatal and postnatal care. She loves working with kid and expecting and now mothers. Read on for more information on how Naturopathic Medicine fits into these two fields.
At GEM Integrative Wellness we offer natural and comprehensive pediatric services for general childhood health and wellness from the first days of life through infancy, adolescence and emerging adulthood. Dr. Galina also specializes in working with children with Autism and other developmental disorders. Holistic pediatrics promotes the use of natural options to treat ailments in infants and children. While the market is flooded with prescription and over-the-counter medications for children, the truth is that these medications treat the symptoms only. Holistic treatment however, means addressing the root causes of the most common and uncommon health problems that afflict infants and children.
PRENATAL & POSTNATAL CARE
Dr. Galina believes that pre-natal care begins months before conception and a well-rounded and comprehensive approach to preparing a women for pregnancy and beyond is the key to the health of both mom and baby. As a Naturopathic Doctor, she can help you from the beginning stages of conception, all the way through birth and mommy-hood.
