Integrative Naturopathic Family Medicine

The functional, individualized approach that distinguishes naturopathic medicine from conventional care is combined with the science and diagnostic tests of conventional medicine in integrative naturopathic family medicine. When employing an integrated approach, the objective is to discover the most reasonable, efficient, and secure course of action to address the underlying health issue, address prevention, and make use of the staggering array of possibilities available to you. This entails employing natural methods (such as a healthy lifestyle, nutrition, vitamins, herbs, and homeopathic remedies) wherever possible, but when necessary, using prescription medications in accordance with an evidence-based methodology. It also entails putting more of an emphasis on preventive and long-term optimization of health on all fronts, including physical, mental-emotional, and spiritual.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Grodski has been been providing Integrative Naturopathic Family Medicine for families from Surrey, Langley, Delta, Aldergrove, Abbotsford, Chillwack, Blaine, and White Rock, since 2007.

Functional Medicine

The following scientifically established conventional health care tenets serve as the foundation of functional medicine:

  • Biochemical individuality (variations in metabolic function result from genetic and environmental variances among people).
  • Putting the patient’s needs ahead of treating the condition is the focus of patient-centered medicine.
  • It is necessary to take into account the dynamic balance between internal and external influences.
  • The human body is made up of numerous interconnected systems that work in concert rather than independently.
  • Environmental pathogens and dietary imbalances have an impact on the cardiovascular, immune, and neurological systems, and dysfunctions in those systems have an impact on the function of other systems.
  • The absence of disease should not be used as a negative definition of health but rather as a positive one. There are no restrictions on what constitutes being in good health; it is having vigor, balance, energy, and clarity.
  • As a result, improving one’s health can raise one’s quality of life and length of life through medicine and daily activities.

In actuality, naturopathic medicine is functional medicine, and vice versa. The focus should be on functionality.

Examining the fundamental clinical imbalances that underlie many illness problems, including food, environmental health, and one’s mental-emotional state (degree of stress), is the basis of functional medicine. One’s body, mind, and soul process these elements according to a certain set of inherited predispositions, attitudes, and beliefs.

The following are the main clinical imbalances caused by problems with this intricate system:

  • Abnormalities in neurotransmitters and hormones;
  • Mitochondropathy and imbalances in oxidation-reduction;
  • Instabilities in biotransformation and detoxification;
  • Immune dysfunction;
  • Immune system imbalances;
  • Abnormalities in the digestive, absorbtive, and microbial systems;
  • Structural abnormalities spanning the musculoskeletal system to cellular membrane function;

Personalized diet and lifestyle instruction are part of functional medicine. The goal of focused nutrition is to support certain bodily systems via the use of natural supplements like vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, and herbs, while lifestyle education works in tandem with targeted nutrition by laying a basis for a lifestyle that promotes health.

Pediatrics: Kids & Health

A wide range of pediatric health issues are treated safely and effectively by naturopathic pediatrics, including:

  • Digestive: feeding problems, colic, indigestion, reflux, gas, diarrhoea, constipation, IBS, food sensitivities, allergies, and intolerances.
  • Dermatological conditions include psoriasis, cradle cap, acne, and eczema.
  • Immune: recurring or chronic colds and flu, ear infections, sinusitis or congestion, allergies, asthma, and urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Mental-emotional: Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, OCD, behavioural issues, nightmares, sleeplessness, sadness, anxiety, phobias, and temper tantrums
  • Developmental concerns include teething, growing pains, health problems associated to puberty, and developmental disorders (PDD).

Numerous treatments are available, including counseling, cranio-sacral and bowen therapy, dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbal, and homeopathic medicine. The White Rock Naturopathic pharmacy has a huge selection of kid-friendly herbal formulae (glycerine based) that are simple to use, delicious, and effective. As a father and a member of both the Association of Perinatal Naturopathic Doctors and the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Dr. Grodski is aware of the special difficulties that come with children’s health, both for the kids and their parents.

Well Child Visits

Of course, prevention is always a smart idea for maintaining excellent health. In light of this, White Rock Naturopathic is pleased to provide ‘Well-Child’ Visits, or preventative check-ups, which may be done at birth, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 2 years, and then yearly after that. These checkups provide a chance to do a physical exam and keep tabs on a child’s growth, development, behavior, and general health. It provides a chance to check in on food and nutrition, exercise, mood, digestive health, and immune system performance in addition to making sure that developmental goals are being met. If the symptoms or risk factors are identified early enough, many common pediatric diseases can be avoided.

Vaccinations

Many parents have questions about vaccinations, side effects, and the vaccination schedule. I am happy to provide information about the pros and cons of each vaccine, and to discuss alternate vaccination schedules. My goal is to help parents get the information they need to make informed choices about vaccinating their child.
