Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the foundation for good health and a need that no one should overlook. Partnering with an experienced primary care practitioner is one of the best things you can do to improve and maintain your health.

Your primary care provider serves as your coach in all things health-related. This process begins by taking the time to get to know you and your unique health and wellness needs. A thorough review of your personal and family health history gives your provider a great starting point for your personalized care. 

At Northwest Wellness, primary care services are provided by a Naturopathic Physician. These medical professionals have advanced training in natural remedies and provide services from a science-backed perspective.

What is naturopathic primary care?

Many people have questions about naturopathy. This area of medical practice focuses on finding natural remedies for a wide range of health conditions. It’s an innately holistic approach to health and wellness, acknowledging and leveraging the fact that physical health is directly linked to spiritual, emotional, mental, and social health.

Prevention is a primary area of focus within naturopathic medicine. Your practitioner works closely with you to ensure you have the screenings and education needed to fully understand your health status. 

Next, a personalized care plan strives to meet you where you are in your personal health journey and helps you enhance and maintain all aspects of your health and wellness. 

When illness or injury arises, naturopathic practitioners look for the root cause rather than simply focusing on minimizing symptoms. Determining the source of your health concerns helps find a solution that delivers lasting relief. 

People with chronic health conditions also benefit from the naturopathic focus on root cause and natural healing. Often, making meaningful lifestyle improvements is the best way to treat chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and more.

How often do I need to come in for primary care visits?

Most people benefit from an annual check-in with their primary care practitioner. This timeline ensures any existing health concerns are caught in the early stages when treatment is often most effective. 

If you have existing health issues, you may need to come in more frequently until your condition is under control. Your Naturopathic Physician is happy to discuss the timeline of visits during your initial appointment. When you’re ready to begin, simply call or click to schedule a visit.
