How a Naturopathic Doctor Can Help You Lose Weight

Are you looking to make some healthy changes for a better and healthier you? Are you looking to meet a specific weight loss goal? Establishing a healthier lifestyle can be lengthy, and certain complications can make it incredibly challenging. Whether you want to implement better eating habits or have a goal to lose weight, a naturopathic doctor can help you meet your goals. In naturopathic medicine, our top priority is helping our patients create realistic plans that help them feel good and, as a side effect, look good. We work closely with our clients to build effective programs that are practical and worthwhile.

Health Support & Remedies

Often, deciding to become healthier or lose weight can be intimidating. With so much information available, deciphering what is best and suitable for you may be challenging. Everyone is different. While a particular diet or exercise plan can work for one person, it doesn’t mean it’s ideal for all. Working with a naturopathic doctor means one-on-one care that leads to customized programs. Your naturopathic doctor will work closely with you, addressing all your concerns and considering any health conditions that may complicate your health and weight loss journey. Common health conditions include hormonal imbalances like PCOS and hypothyroidism, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues. But fear not! The help and support you will receive from your naturopathic doctor will make all the difference. Your doctor will provide ample support and natural remedies to address any complications.

Meal Planning

There’s a common rule of thumb when it comes to losing weight. Many professionals claim that weight loss is 75% attributed to your diet and 25% to exercise. While we’re not quite fixated on those specific numbers, we do find that there’s a bit of truth to it. And the truth is that what we eat plays a big part in our well-being and our ability to lose weight. As mentioned, when you work with a naturopathic doctor, you get customized plans that are made specifically for you. Your doctor will consider all sorts of limitations to make meal planning as streamlined as possible. Your doctor will spend extra time getting to know you, noting your schedule, the amount of time you have to prep your meals, what kinds of food you like, and what you typically avoid. With close observation and a little trial and error, you can achieve your goals in no time.

Whole Person Care and Naturopathic

Emotional eating is a big problem many face in developing better eating habits, losing weight, or having a better relationship with food. Emotional eating is an unhealthy coping mechanism for internal or external factors. Naturopathic medicine is synonymous with whole-person care. It’s what it is all about. Whole-person care is a patient-centered approach to helping people of all backgrounds get the care they seek. We address not only physical health issues but also mental and spiritual issues as well. We do this as we believe in the interconnectedness of our body and our surroundings. We work with our patients by first addressing their triggers, helping them establish better coping mechanisms, and providing them with the support they need to succeed.
