What is the difference between functional medicine, holistic medicine, and naturopathic medicine?

All of these medicines focus on treating the whole person and getting to the root cause of symptoms. Instead of managing or masking symptoms, these approaches can address key factors that determine your health and wellbeing such as gut health, nutrition, lifestyle, childhood, relationships, chronic stress, mindset, trauma, and environmental toxins. 

Naturopathic doctors are trained primary care doctors and teachers who take a natural, non-invasive, and holistic approach to helping you feel better and stop health concerns or symptoms. They teach you why symptoms are happening so you can learn how to heal yourself. They help you address deeper causes to your health problems and give you the support you need to heal. Natural medicine doctors look at you as a whole person - your thoughts, body, emotions, spirit, lifestyle habits and patterns, childhood history, medical history - to support all of you. There is not a one size fits all approach in naturopathic medicine

 

In the state of Illinois, naturopathic doctors are not licensed and can not diagnose or treat medical conditions. Dr. Felty works with you and your primary care team to provide holistic care and education that supports overall wellbeing. Learn about naturopathic medicine

Do I need take supplements or vitamins?

Vitamins/supplements can act as a supplement to your diet and can help you maintain proper nutrient levels. No diet is perfect or provides optimal amounts of nutrients every day however you know your body best. It is estimated that 99% of Americans have nutrient deficiencies. And due to industrialized farming practices, soil has become depleted of essential minerals leaving vegetables far less nutrient dense than before. Nutrient deficiencies can also happen over time by stress, medications, gut health issues, infections, and processed foods.

 

Some vitamins/herbs/supplements are essential in helping the body flush out toxins while others maintain healthy levels. However, vitamins/supplements can not replace a whole foods diet or stress reduction. Taking supplements should be individualized based on your deficiencies, symptoms, and health goals. Testing your nutrient levels can be helpful in accessing if you need to be taking certain supplements or not. Dr. Felty can work with you on your individual needs. Get started
