Recently, in an interview with SD Voyager they asked about the challenges of getting healthy. Here was my response:
"I get a lot of patients with complex medical histories, and sometimes it’s hard for people to accept that healing may not happen as quickly as they want it to. Mostly I get people who haven’t felt well for years, sometimes decades – so it can take months or a couple of years before they are where they want to be when they first come in the door. I have seen people turn around in a week or a month, but with chronic diseases that kind of healing is pretty rare."
Being an "Out of Network" naturopathic doctor has a LOT of advantages - I can provide my patients with care they can't get anywhere else. However, this means I'm the doctor of last resort for many patients - and treating conditions that have been deteriorating for years is more difficult than intervening early.
