As a patient of mine this is how you are welcomed to my office…
Welcome to the office of Tracy Erfling ND
Please take a moment to read this information, which pertains to your health care with a naturopathic physician.
Naturopathic physicians are primary care doctors, and have the diagnostic and therapeutic skills to manage any health care issue you would commonly seek attention for at a conventional doctor’s office. The difference lies in the philosophy of naturopathic medicine, which believes and practices in treating the whole person with the least invasive, most natural methods possible. Naturopathic medicine is also clear in its goal to seek the root cause of your health concerns. This means that the treatments may lie outside of the symptoms that you are experiencing, as those symptoms are the body’s message of dis-ease as opposed to the condition itself. This philosophy allows for a much deeper experience between patient and doctor, a sadly missing element in current medical care. Therefore, Naturopathic medicine requires not only advice and therapeutic tools from me the physician, but work from you as well; together our power to heal is strong and long lasting. It is often overlooked and undervalued that our bodies want to be well, their capacity to heal is immense and the nourishment and support of natural medicine makes these changes absolutely possible. I look forward to commencing our journey towards better health together.
Sincerely, Tracy Erfling ND
