Modern medicine has excelled in the fields of infectious disease and emergencies in the last 100 years. But in chronic degenerative disease, it is mostly control or palliation that it aims for. Conventional drugs, surgery and radiation do little to reverse the disease. These options slow the progression, sometimes with very little benefit, and too often at a great cost in quality of life for the patient.
Here at Leduc Naturopathic Clinic we take a very different approach in the treatment of chronic illness by addressing the underlying cause, not just the symptoms. We focus on the body as a whole, and therefore, we evaluate a patients mental, emotional and physical wellness in order to find and treat the cause of their symptoms. Also, we help to detect functional issues before an illness develops, and therefore, we put great emphasis on prevention.
At our clinic, we take the time to take a thorough medical history, physical exam, laboratory testing and electrodermal testing to assess and understand the how and why the illness persists. We have access to a variety of private laboratories, and therefore, get an objective detailed assessment of hormones, food allergies, metabolism etc.
We use Biological medicine to stimulate the body’s own abilities to heal and regenerate. Biological medicine has been widely used in Switzerland and Germany for the last 500 years with great success especially in the areas of chronic illness where conventional medicine fails us.
